This morning while checking out a financial website, a virus alert page opened. I wasn't able to get the name. It blocked other pages from being opened. I immediately turned the computer off. When I logged back on, the virus alert page was still there but I was able to run some scans with my AV/MBAM/SAS. I ran full scans with Microsoft Security Essentials, came up with nothing, I ran a full MBAM scan, came up with nothing, I ran a full SAS scan, came back with nothing, I ran a full Kaspersky online scan, came back with nothing. All scans were with updated apps. I don't seem to be having any problems that I can see right now but my concern is that I used this computer for my banking and stock trading.
If someone could advise me on what to do/post to make sure I have a clean system, I'd appreciate it.

I'm running Vista x64 4 g. ram using I.E.7.

Thanks for the help
