I am using Windows 7 with a 64bit operating system. I did not install any antivirus software for the first three weeks I was on the internet. My computer began to act strange, my mouse would not work, I could not navigate to and within certain websites, others OK. Anyway, I tried running malwarebytes and then installing McAfee and thought that fixed it, but either something came back or it was never gone. I just got this computer, so I didn't have lots stored on it that I couldn't save to a thumbdrive. So, I used the back-up partition that Lenovo set up for me before sending (or I set up as soon as I got the computer) to create reinstall discs. I went through that process and I'm back with no trouble noted yet... I think.

So my question, is it possible my reinstall could be corrupted because I created the reinstall discs after I had the bug? And the reason I ask is that I know now that a reinstall disc is essential, and if the one I just created is going to give me problems in the future, I want to address that now.

And when I reload the photos and music from the thumbdrive, will I be infecting the computer once again?

Thanks
