Earlier today, my home computer became infected with a couple trojans and some other minimal viruses. I was able to successfully remove them all, but I only say that because that is what MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware are telling me. Since then, my computer has been lagging more than I am used to, and I got a strange pop-up about an error message to "Send" or "Do Not Send." I forgot to take a screencap because I wasn't sure at the time as to what it was, but when I clicked to see the details, it was talking about my IP address and passwords. I simply clicked "Do Not Send," restarted my computer, and scanned it again. I also ran rkill, and there were more stopped processes than normal, but I'm not sure if they were part of my computer programs or not. Here is the list:
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Application Data\asam.exe
This is my third time getting trojans in the past month. I've been searching online and read somewhere that sometimes backdoors can lead to you getting the virus again, even when you think it's gone. I don't have a lot of knowledge about it, so I just wanted to post here to see if I'm in any danger and/or what I should do to prevent them in the future. Thank you in advance.edit//
MalwareBytes just picked up a threat - Trojan.FakeAlert.
I spotted this earlier, but thought it was removed. I guess not.
