I just got a Gateway desktop about a month ago, and today an app showed up on the startup called "Conime". It gave me the option to disable it (which I did). But I couldn't find anything on the computer that matched that name when I did a search on it. When I did an online search, the articles stated that it was possibly a virus.

 

We are running Norton security which came with the PC, which showed no problems. We ran the Malware Bytes program and nothing was flagged there either.

 

I need to know if we are infected or not. We are not very computer literate on Windows8, the last one we had was Windows Vista, so it's a HUGE jump. I took a screen shot of the task manager to show what it says.

 

Thanks.
