Recently, I had an infection on my computer which has been removed (I have written a description of it at the end). However, I am still wary that I have something on my computer. I know this doesn't sound important but I have personal files on here and I also have 19 exams coming up and I really don't want this to be an extra worry. Anyway, I recently just had a STOPzilla scan (I had the trial version, and it has run out but it still scans) and it found 4 things. It found: Rogue.Win32.Antivirus 7 in the Temp folder, Trojan.Win32.Vundo.gen!a in AppData/Roaming/Remote, Trojan.Win32.Mal.gen!a46 in AppData/Roaming and some folder with loads of letters and numbers, and also some thing called Hidden Files & Folders in my Videos folder which I originally, before the infection, had hidden.
Also, the infection I had hid all my files. I have put them on show, but they are still on hidden, even though the infection has been removed. Should they have gone back to normal, or do I need to un-hide them?
I have done research on this Rogue Win32 Antivirus and it says I should be getting popups trying to trick me into putting my details in but I am not getting these popups. I'm assuming and hoping that this has been quarantined but the fact that STOPzilla found it after the infection I had stil worries me, particularly as my trial days have ran out.
I've tried MalwareBytes, and that has found nothing. I then tried SUPERAntiSpyware and tried a Custom Scan. I tried to type in the folder that this Rogue.Win32.Antivirus 7 is in, but it said the folder could not be used.
Do you think I should be concerned about this, and do you think I should try and delete the folders the Rogue and Trojans are in? I know this maybe doesn't sound important, but I really just want to be able to rest easy.
If this helps, this is a description of the infection I had:
I was on a Tumblr blog and something about Java kept coming up and closing my Internet. After I re-loaded the blog, it worked fine. Then one day, I tried going on it again, and this popup kept coming up, asking for my permission to install Adobe Flash Player. I kept denying but it kept popping up over and over till I closed my Internet where it stopped.
I was suspicious something had got onto my computer so I went on Task Manager, checked my processes and noticed two weird ones called 3AE.exe and 4380B.exe. I tried looking them up, but couldn't find much aside from a few websites stating that 3AE.exe was highly critical. There were no instructions, however, on how to remove them. I tried setting the priority to them as 'Low', but they just returned to 'Normal' without my doing so. Eventually, I found what folder they were in and stupidly, I got McAfee to shred it. Then my background disappeared, along with the majority of my shortcuts, and my computer kept restarting. A ton of pop ups kept coming up also, saying something about a failure of my hardrive. I'm not quite sure what is said because I was freaking out, and eventually had to call a friend over to remove it because I was in such a panic to try and do it myself. Ever since he sorted it, I have not seen 3AE.exe nor 4380B.exe since.
If this also helps, I've read somewhere that 3AE.exe has been related to Cycbot.G who also has been related to the Win.32 Trojans STOPzilla is finding.
Thank you for any advice you can give me.
Oh and I am using Windows Vista Home Edition.
