I am worried that I may have a virus. I got one while using Google Chrome but my McAfee immediatley picked it up and I eliminated them. I proceeded to run SpyBot Search and Destroy, which found nothing except some cookies as it always does. I ran a quickscan with McAfee right after that and it found nothing as well. I ran another full scan with McAfee today as well as another one with SpyBot and found nothing. However, I am not sure if it escaped detection. I got more than one I believe, the only one I remember being a Trojan one. I checked my processes in task manager and I think all of them check out, but I am not sure. FATrayAlert.exe and FATrayMon.exe seemed weird to me, but I think they are supposed to be there. So basically I want to know:
1. Could the viruses have gotten past?
2. Is McAfee my best option ( I pay for it, so I would rather not merely uninstall it).
3. I have WebRoot Spy Sweeper -- the paid version ( not installed though). Should I install it, or will it conflict with McAfee?
4. Is Google Chrome safe or should I use IE?
I went back to using IE . (I got the virus --which I believe I got rid of-- in Google Chrome). Someone told me to check my processes, but I have no idea what they mean....I am so worrrried, please help me.
Thanks in advance ( I am truly sorry if I did this wrong, I am just really upet ).
NOTE: Someone recommended Glary Utilities to me and I ran that today. Some errors came up, but none looked to be that serious (or even a virus for that matter) and I fixed them.
I also just ran a Malwarebytes scan in safe mode as well as a mcafee scan and nothing came up.
EDIT: System Information
Dell Studio XPS M 1640
Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit with SP 2.
I have been worrying about this all day and tried to use Dell, but I would have to pay for Software support because my warranty doesnt cover it. I am frustrated and worried and hope someone can help me.
Thanks in advance
