First Update your Virus Definitions....then, Run your Virus Scanner. But one step that most people forget to do or don't know to do, is to DISABLE SYSTEM RESTORE and then Reboot (preferably into SAFE mode, since SAFE mode only installs the basic drivers that Windows Needs To run.

Then Run your Virus Scanner...

Hope that helps... :thumbsup:

Here are some web based scans which may help you, especially the last two:

Web based online Antivirus and anti-malware scans: (these can be run regardless of whatever else you are using. You must use Internet Explorer to run these.)

Windows Security Trojanscan

Panda Activescan (IE only)

Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:

Etrust Anti-virus web scanner

Kaspersky Anti-Virus Web Scanner

1. Yes, please update all programs.
2. Then run them all, in safe-mode.
3. Then disable and then re-enable your system restore.
