Hello, I'm posting because I am more or less paranoid about whether I am infected or not.  I've found that my Skype has typed by itself two times:the first time I changed passwords along with my IP Address, and blocked/deleted the person suspect of causing trouble; the second time I did the same, but this time I disabled remote access and made skype hide my ip from those who are not my contacts.  From what I saw being typed, I gather it was a human typing and not a bot at work, which begs the question (since Avast basically came up clean; Malwarebytes picked up a Trojan.Agent.FKN and a Softonic PUP registry key which I removed, but they didn't seem to be related to the problem), what should I do to make sure my computer is rid of whatever nosy pest was (or is) lurking in it?

Did you download Skype from the official webiste?

 

Softronic download site is prone to malware and spyware.

 

Do you happen to have IB-Updater  or DomaIQ on your list of installed programs??

Yes, I downloaded skype from the official website, and I have neither IB-Updater nor DomaIQ in my list of installed programs.

Do you have Windows Firewall active or another firewall app running?
