i was going through stat sites listed from a group on last.fm (half were old, sold, or abandoned) when i noticed that my "working in the background" cursor was on for quite a while and then i saw a message from my windows taskbar saying "warning, infection found" or something like that. i closed my browser and saw smart fortress on my desktop (never even heard of it)
i did feel uneasy so i disconnected from the internet immediately and it did try to stop avira but luckily it was caught and i deleted it. after rebooting my computer i did a full scan with avira (clear results) and one with malwarebytes (also clear results.)
everything seems fine now; should i do this anyway: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-smart-fortress-2012 or should everything be fine?
