I have PDF Creator installed on my PC. Today I was prompted by PDF Creator that an update was available. I clicked on the link in the prompt and was taken to the website where the update could be downloaded (pdfforge).
Unfortunatly instead on clickling on the small grey update box, I accidently clicked on a large green update box which turned out to be a Google Ad. This took me to a site where there was another 'download PDF Creator' icon. I clicked on this, which downloaded something called 'IBrtye Download Manager'. I ran this and it installed PDF Creator (I had to untick many other download options first).
However I thought this was a bit odd, so I googled IBryte, which turned out to be malware. I ran a quick scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which came up clean, and there is nothing by IBryte listed in the 'uninstall progams' list which I accessed via the control panel or in the process listed by the Task Manager. However I read that this program does a good job of hiding itself. How can I tell if I'm infected?
Thanks for your help
