I'm new to the forums so bear with me if I accidentally omit information or misname certain names.

I have visited a site for tennis match viewing that I have seen operating for a while and then something very strange happened. I'm using Avira AntiVir Personal, the software went crazy informing me that I have been infected at least ten times. I have seen it make mistakes before so it took me a while before I realized this is the real thing. Two of the recurring infections were podmena and futu.exe. I thought it had something to do with me using IE 7 so I upgraded it, and then restored my computer to a week before. I also upgraded to Firefox 3. Problems: dwwin wouldn't stop popping up with windows recovering from a serious error, until I ended the process, and sysguard appeared on my computer. By the second or third re-boot I didn't have any visible problems with the exception that I cannot enable Antivir. However, Firefox started working really slowly when a new site was presented to it. I can't shake the feeling that I have an invisible virus, or spyware on my computer and it's just waiting to do harm. Any help would be appreciated.

I think it would be a good idea to run more virus scans with alternate software. I've seen Avira detect some crazy stuff, but then not be able to completely fix it. Try running the typical tools (superantispyware, malware bytes). You could also use a rescue cd:
