AVG showed that my computer was infected with dropper.generic_c.mmi, I installed PCTools and it ran a scan and found some threats but never mentioned it. AVG said something about a whitelist and then said that I had to ignore the threat. I did a system restore and there are no signs of the virus, my webpages are no longer redirected. The antivirus is no longer detecting anything.

I also ran combofix, only one thing was ddeleted in the log.

I want to know now, if the system restore to a few days earlier had actually removed the virus or if it is still somewhere in my PC. I heard that the dropper generic thing was nasty, password stealing and difficult to remove.

Could the system restore have gotten rid of it or did it somehow hide itself somewhere. I am scared to use my PC now.

I want to know if there is anyway I can scan and make sure that I have gotten rid of it for sure.
