Thanks Rui. I am scanning now. Is there anything else I should be doing regularly to make sure my computer is protected and and running efficiently? I have Avira installed, once a week I do a Malwarebytes scan, I empty my temp folder regularly. What else should I be doing?
You should make sure you have the Operating System with the lasted updates and all the applications specially internet related, Adobe Flash Player, Java, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Internet Browsers and Instant Messaging software. A tool like FileHippo.com Update Checker
can help keeping the installed software update.
Also when installing software always do a custom install, this way you can choose if you want to install or not the extras many of those free programs now include, many of them are spyware and ad-aware that open access to other malware and most of the time you can skip them...
