Ok so last night I watched a movie with ym girlfriend off a website Ive used alot in the past. Never had any problems with it. I dont truly know if it came from this website but I fell asleep halfway through the movie. When I woke up this morning there was a message stating that I had successfully downloaded something and my computer needed to retsart. I tried to see what it was that was downloaded but couldnt find what it was. After restarting my computer, it is quite a bit slower and now webpages are freezing. Also a game I play online has alot of latency and is impossible to play. I could deffinately use some help finding what was downloaded and removing it. I have malwarebytes running atm but so far it hasnt found anything. I'm also under the assumption that malwarebytes will only find and delete malware right? I dont have any other type of anti-virus on my computer so if anyone knows a good free anti-virus, please, put me on to it. Thanks in advance for helping me.

Hello and welcome. It may have been a Window Update The come out on Tuesdays. You can chek Windows update history.

But First you need an AV. I am going to suggest you install and run this first.
Click here install the free Antivir...I use this.

Let me know what happens after that.
Is this an XP machine?
What Firewall is on?

Please post the Malwarebytes log
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

Also the AVira antivir log,thanks.
