Malwarebytes can't detect every single piece of malware out there but yes, you can trust it... what is it going to do, lie? If you are unsure, download Hitman Pro and scan with that and see what it turns up. Be sure to have a good Antivirus running and you are fine. Malwarebytes is one of the best software out there so if it didnt find anything, you most likely have nothing on your computer, at least major.

You may also want to consider Emsisoft Anti Malware in addition to Malwarebytes. I use both.

If you choose to install, pay close attention & select the easily overlooked Freeware version installation.

Yes you can trust Malwarebytes but keep in mind that no single product is 100% foolproof and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear and it takes time for them to be reported, samples collected, analyzed, and tested by researchers before they can add a new threat to database definitions.

Usually when a computer is infected with malware there will be indications (signs of infection) something is wrong.

You can always supplement your anti-virus and anti-malware scanners or get a second opinion by performing an Online Virus Scan. ESET is one of the more effective online scanners.

By default Emsisoft Anti-Malware installs as a free fully functional 30 day trial version with real-time protection. After the trial period expires you can either choose to buy a full version license or continue to use it in limited freeware mode which still allows you to scan and clean infections. The freeware mode no longer provides any real-time protection to guard against new infections. However, even if the trial is still enabled, you can easily turn off all real time protection and just have it running as on-demand scanner only. After the trial period expires nothing really changes except that the options to activate Realtime Protection are no longer available without purchasing the full version.
