I was on the computer watching videos on youtube and on a voice call on skype, when the next moment my girlfriend told me my voice was "lagging or slow" so i ended the call and tried to recall when i did the ringing sound was gone and it kept ending without the call landing. so i told her to call me and about 5 minutes later the call came through so i answered but the answer box stayed on the screen and nothing else happened. i also notice no new messages appear in the chat and it keeps scrolling to the top.
the web browser was also acting funny like when i pause the video and hit resume it wouldnt play.. i type something in google search bar and it types in the url box instead.
i did a computer scan with avg (not the free version) and it found 1 high threat virus and it said "hidden application' under virus description. so i deleted it and just did a second scan to be sure and rebooted the pc.
when it came back on it seemed normal but the browser still is acting funny and skype is not working properly with calls
i just need help to ensure the virus is gone or im not being attacked as we speak just i am really unsure what is happening
if someone has any advice or help can you please get back to me
EDIT: i have also noticed.. if i make a call on skype to even the echo sound test. it makes my skype freeze and youtube videos begin to load (even if fully buffered) about 2 minutes later call ends with no response and video resumes..
