About a week ago a computer that is on my network at work was infected horribly with spyware, we disconnected it from the network but I dont know if it was to late.

I connect with my laptop when I go to the office, and today was on twitter and viewing a image, and a box popped up that said your computer is infected, run a scan to find out how to clean, and the domain was something like smart-pc-scanner9.com - It kept saying infected, so I closed the x out and didnt do anything with it and am running all kinds of scans on my computer, but the problem is - I dont know if my computer is infected, the msgs that were coming up and the domain is the same as the one that was infected on our network, since my laptop is not old and i do a ton of work on it I need to make sure its okay. What can I do to make sure of this? Here is what Im doing so far:

Running full scan with Avast, nothing found so far

Running full scan with malwarebytes, no infections so far

Running windows defender, no infections.

I have a feeling something is there and my software isnt catching it - please advise what to do next. I found the domain on a malware url site that said its a infectious site that will infect your computer immediately.

Please help me!

I have windows vista
HP dv6-1245dx
