I belive I have been infected by a fake antivirus software. The software changed the desktop background with an alert message and kept prompting me to purchase a windows-simil antivirus. McAffe was not able to fix the issue.

I have run combofix and the problem seem to have disapeared.
Please help me identify if further action is required.
Please let me know if I should include combofix log.

Thanks in advance.
