I had a box pop up that read Microsoft Security Essentials Alert. I didn't click on it but it did stay on my browser screen. I had turned off the computer and when it came back on I opened Firefox browser and the box was still there. I came on the site here immediately and found the removal for it using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I ran the programs mentioned on the removal process twice. When the process was done it showed nothing was found. When I opened my Firefox browser again the "alert" was gone. I wonder if the "removal" worked? Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm not sure how to find the C Files or what the LOG would be under for the 1st scan you had me do. It showed no infections.

It said it's completed and gives me the option to save log. But that's why I ask about the computer info. It has my computers name, etc.
