This is my first post so i hope I am doing everything correctly. I am an experienced pc user.
I have recently rebuit my laptop after and earlier issue. I run a standard Windows dual boot system. Both partitions run under Win XP Pro SP3. One partition is for serious stuff, software development mainly, and the other for general 'home' use.
I use Comodo for my firewall/anitvirus and Malwarebytes and IOBit Security 360 for additional protection. A scan this morning with IOBit Security 360 found the above infection. A scan with Malwarebytes does not pick it up and neither does Comodo? I am obviously very concered but am at a loss as how how i got infected as I thought I was adequately protected. I am not aware that I have been to any 'dodgy' sites.
I have recently been the victim of identity theft and had my bank account cleaned out. Although not related to this issue, I am concered that this infection could result in similar problems arising.
Any help or advise on how best to proceed would be much appreciated. Particulary, the best way to prevent this happening again in th future.
