It has been long time since i used antivirus on my pc, my pc has been functioning extremely slow recently when i decided to purchase enetfix online antivirus, they showed on free scan which found a number of virus and malware. How do i know if the scan has performed genuinely and the report is correct?

I'm a little puzzled as to why after being content to use no antivirus (definitely not wise) you would then suddenly consider paying for an unknown quantity, when you could use known free offerings such as Avast Free or Microsoft Security Essentials.

 

However to double-check the status of your system as it stands, you could try a scan from another dependable online source, such as BitDefender:

I have to concur.

I can only include what the WOT add-on for Firefox has to say: http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/enetfix.com?utm_source=addon&utm_content=popup-donuts. I suggest you follow the suggestions of Platypus.
