Hello dear people of BleepingComputer i've got a small question.
I was browsing some websites an hour ago when I got an ad that looks like the Police Virus. I have had this virus once a year or so ago. The thing is this wasn't the virus i.e. it didn't block my computer or anything it was just a pop-up ad to a website which i closed immediately. So now I'm sitting here thinking whether or not to take this seriously.
I did a scan with MBAM and Avast Free AntiVirus. MBAM showed 3 detections, all 3 were in the google chrome file in appdata. The name was ejpbbhj... a long name thus
The Avast scan was pretty clear. I didn't use AdAware or HitmanPro because i thought the problem was solved but now i'm still unsure whether i don't have any malware or viruses on the PC, i'd rather be safe than sorry. So is there a way to check my PC for any malware other than i just did right here or is it safe to assume that my pc is safe to use without having to worry that i have malicious files on my pc. (take that last sentence with a pinch of salt )
Thank you for your help !!!
