My computer recently caught something, what happened basically was that an Internet Explorer window popped up and started opening blank tabs, whenever I tried to do something or open another window it would pop back. I closed it with the Task Manager, but I had to do it several times until it will stay put.
I was told it was some kind of virus and to run Combofix, but going through the guide I decided not to, since the person who recommended it, though with much more knowledge than me in this subject, it's not an expert.
I don't know if it has to do with any of it but my antivirus has trouble downloading updates, though I think this is other kind of problem and I'm thinking about installing it again.
I would really appreciate some help since I recently got my desktop computer completely messed up by something (took it to an 'expert', who skillfully got rid of everything, including all my documents, pictures, etc.), and I won't like to something similar to happen to my laptop.
