My friend passed me a game via USB drive, and I didn't think it was infected. I forgot what the game was, but I put it on my PC and installed it. I halted the installation before it finished because it was taking extremely long, and no files were being created. That caused me to become suspicious of that software. I decided to check the control panel program list and uninstall the program, but it wasn't there. As previously stated, there were also no files created (at least not in the folder I've told it to install in). I tried deleting the folder I told it to install in, and it didn't let me delete it. 2 days later, I tried again yet it still told me the files were being used by another program. (precomp.exe). I dl'ed MBAM FileAssassin and deleted many of the files. Then, I went in there and deleted the folders individually (which worked). When I tried to delete them from the recycle bin, I noticed my PC starting to bug (e.g not letting me delete it - icon staying there etc) which I've never noticed before. I took MBAM and Comodo Antivirus (my AV) and they reported no infections. I also grabbed herdProtect and it detected no threat as well.
