I would like to make sure my computer is running properly and not infected with any kind of virus, key logger, etc. I am not the best with computers so all I basically know how to do is run a security scan. Does anyone mind running me through the steps to check if I am in fact infected and how to completely rid my computer of all malicious items. Now some problems that I have been having with my computer over the past few months, I have noticed that my physical memory is sitting between 44 - 50% when I only have Firefox open and my CPU Usage is only at 1%. Also, I don't know if this is a related problem but when ever I play a video game on this computer after about an hour or so the monitor goes completely black then turns back on with vertical lines going across the screen (displaying different color vertical lines each time this happens) and I am forced to manually turn off my computer.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you
