I wanted to know what the best way to scan for any virus or malware you might have on your system. Any tools or anything that I should use to check for intrusions. I recently was infected and also wanted to make sure that everything was gone.

Hi -
Wihout knowing of your previus infection, on a deneral basis your best opyions are Fukk scans with your Antivirus.
You would follow with Full scans by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free and SuperantiSpyware Free.

You could also use ESET Online Scanner
Disable your antivirus program - Information on A/V control (temp disable) HERE if needed
Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use
Click Start
Accept any security warnings from your browser.
Check Scan archives
Click Start
ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.

If you had certain odd infections there are some other tools, but. the above are your "general" response -

Thank You -

Ok So I scanned with ESET Online Scanner and it removed 7 infections. I recently had a redirt virus and also wanted to make sure that nothing was slowing down my system. I havn't tried yet but before it seemed like my transfer speeds where slow when transfering 7 GB file to 16 GB usb drive that's why I wanted to do another scan.
