My Dad downloaded a program today on my laptop and I know that my laptop is now affected with something. When downloading the program, he fell into the trap of pressing "Accept" heaps of times and he ended up dowloading a bunch of programs (I think this is what happened).
I have McAfee internet security installed. A full scan about an hour ago showed three files that I have quarantined.
Things that are happening:
1. Constant popups when they never appeared before, e.g. clicking on a link on a website, signing out of Gmail, etc.
2. When I open a new tab, I get redirected to www.trovi.com
3. Constant popup appearing on the bottom left side of my screen when I'm on the internet
4. When I log into Twitter, I see a massive blue "key" icon next to where I would have my password. I haven't logged into Twitter on this computer yet.
Toshiba Sattelite Pro (I can get the model number if required)
OS: Windows 7 Professional
Antivirus: McAfee (updates are current as of now)
If someone could please help me in getting rid of these bugs, that would be much appreciated.
