Hello everyone, I just joined this site. I have a lot of knowledge about the software and hardware of a Computer, and usually manually remove infections, etc.. But this time, I'm a bit confused. So I'm hoping you all can shed some light, and maybe give me some help.
So there's really no performance issues with my PC as far as I see. I could be wrong, though. The only thing I've noticed is if it did slow down in performance, it's wasn't a change that would be entirely noticeable.. But let's just say for sake of argument "I've noticed a TINY bit of slowdown in performance".
I ran CCleaner, removed some broken registry errors, and cleared temp/history/cookies then restarted.. And everything was pretty much fine, but I wan't to be on the safe side because of what's been happening lately.
Lately I've been getting more than the usual MBAM warnings about "Infected IP:xxxxxxxxxxx blocked". It really didn't concern me, but now I'm a bit concerned because..
I came home from classes today, turned my PC on.. And immediately it said "Infected IP:xxxxxxxxxxx blocked". On my DESKTOP! I was like, what the hell? So I ran a quick scan with MBAM just to see if there was anything it could find, and it didn't.
Should I be on the safe side and run a Full Scan?
