Yes, you can still get infected, because many sites return a real page that contains a 404 error message. Technically: the web server serves a page with HTTP status 200, the HTML of the server page contains texts that displays a 404 message.
But the sites i went to returned a 404 error message saying the page could not be displayed is it possible that i still could of been infected?
There is no 100% guaranteed way to do this. But I recommend you scan your machine with one or more AV Live CDs. Quietman7 has posted a list of such free CDs from AV vendors before:
So what i want to know is whats the best way of detecting a backdoor exploit or what programmes can i use to scan for one?
