Yesterday I was surfing around and hit a bad website that imediatly started messing with my computer. I got the whole black screen thing popping up, the text on the desktop about being infected with spyware. Immediatly I started working on getting it off there with windows defender etc. Then I came home last night and worked on it until about 3AM by running all kinds of different things (Ad-Aware SE, S & D, Ewido, Panda online scan, F-something online scan etc). I am still working on it and following some instructions from someone looking at my hijackthis log. I have found in my searches things like alfacleaner, smitfraud (4 things there), teslaplus, winanti something or something (can't remeber right now). Anyway. Here is my main concern. My computer has on it all the records of all our employees, bank account numbers, SS numbers, tax returns ect. Considering that I have not opened any of these programs or anything else since this happened, what are the odds that data had been compromised. I mean, what do these spyware, malware, viruses etc, do?
