A few days ago I went on a website that I regularly go on and usually do not have an issue with, but this time apparently was different. The website I went on was irazoo.com (it is one of those search and win sites). When I went on the site my anti-virus software (Norton 360) popped up that it blocked a trojan and few other things.
I immediately scanned my computer with Norton 360, which came up with nothing else. Then scanned it with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which found a trojan and quarantined it on reboot. Re-scanned the computer a few more times with both programs and they did not come up with anything.
A day or two later I go on firefox and search for something in the search bar (google) and get redirected to install a firefox extension (I believe it was called performance cache 1.0) I "x'd" out of it but apparently it was installed anyway, so I disabled it and deleted it. I go back and run scans with Norton 360, which finds nothing and Malwarebytes, which finds a few trojans, which it quarantined. Also ran TDSSKiller which found nothing.
At this point I had a friend who knows a bit more about removing malware than me help out. He ran a few programs, not sure if I remember them all but I will try to list what I remember, Norton 360, Malwarbytes, Spybot Search and destroy, TDSSKiller, RogueKiller and used RKill to close anything running in the backround. I may be missing one or two, not sure. He ran them in both Normal mode and in Safe mode. He made a new hosts file just in case. Re-ran a few of the programs multiple times after rebooting the computer even though they were not coming up with anything, just in case.
Now here I am, I have not had a redirect, the computer does not act weird at all. Scans are still not coming up with anything. But I can't help but wonder if it really is clean now, not that I don't trust myself, my friend or any of the programs we used, but still just want to be 100% sure.
Is there any program I can run that will give me a log to show you that will help determine if the system is really in fact clean now?
Sorry for the wall of text, but thanks in advance for any help.
