In short, I wanted a portable antivirus for my USB (the new computers at the school I go to have NO antivirus), and MxOne SEEMED like a good idea. However, upon download, McAfee (it's on a 30-day subscription) immediately detected a trojan and restarted my computer to remove it. So here I am, on a dual-booted Linux, trying to find out if it's safe to go back to Vista. (Xp is on here too, if it matters.) Were the two anti viruses just conflicting? It was just one plain .exe file, and I didn't run any installers or anything, so I'm really not trusting it, nor do I think I should be. What should I do now? And if it turns out anything managed to infect my files or registry, how do I remove it?
I had my flash drive in too... :/ Man, that was really stupid. KNEW I should have cancelled that download the moment I clicked Yes.
