Well, it almost looks as I've gone out there and did it again, but Im not sure. Im using Windows 7.

I torrented a Fraps download, and scanned it with Malwarebytes, showing no viruses. I then uploaded it to VirusTotal, which gave me a report of 1/44, with the 1 being "Suspicious." I went ahead and ran it, and everything went accordingly. After a use or two, I was guessing a glitch occured because there was a sort of faint, transparent "delete" button, left over from one of my right clicks. It wouldnt go away, so I hit went to "Switch User" to try to get rid of the thing. It took 30 seconds, and when the users screen came up, my mouse wouldnt respond, and the touch pad moved the mouse "slower" than usual. When I managed to click on my user, it took me to a black screen, and the computer stopped responding all together. I held my power button for a few seconds, shutting it down. I then rebooted it and it logged in as usual. The first 5 or so seconds showed my desktop empty, with the speaker icon on the bottom right saying "audio device not running." or something along the lines of that. After than, all my stuff appeared, and the computer is running normally as far as I can tell.

Is there anything suspicious about this behavior?

Thank you for your time!

Appears to me anyway that it needed to make a lot of registry changes and needed some reboots to settle down.
That said I do not know if where it was downloaded was safe.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check Posted Image and check Remove found threats
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.

I downloaded the software from ThePirateBay, which was why I was worried when my computer acted up.

The scan showed no threats, and everything is working fine. Thanks for the information!
