I was sitting in class today with my laptop and some kid just inadvertently plugged in his USB into my laptop.. It started installing his device onto my computer so I quickly unplugged it after a half second.  I want to make purchases online but I have a feeling there might be a keylogger or something installed on my device because of this kid.  How can I get rid of whatever installed in that 'half second' without doing a system restore?
