I think I may have infected my computer.

Hello all.

Someone in a game directed me to a site to view a video. There was a fake video screen mimicking the error of not having an updated Flash Player. There was conveniently a link at that screen which I clicked, thinking it was real. I downloaded it and executed it without thinking. Immediately, COMODO detected something that I ignored. Moments later, there was a warning about a buffer overflow and a shellcode injection. I do not know what these terms mean but knowing that it's from COMODO, I knew something was up. I went back to the site and noticed the URL for the download page was a fake one. At this point, I knew I fell for the trap. The problem is that I've run five scanners (avast!, Windows Defender, Malwarebytes, Spybot:S&D, and Lavasoft Ad-Aware) and not one has detected anything yet. However, I have not done this in safe mode but perhaps I should.

Any advice?

Here's the Virustotal scan: http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/5aed89e...9822-1261100157

P.S.: I forgot to mention that I'm running Windows 7 RC. I have a retail disc that I will use later, or even now if the situation requires it.
