Well I was on twitch.tv and many of us were sharing picture links.
One person posted a link and it automatically started installing a .scr file.
I researched it and say that it was a screen saver file but many people use it for malious intent.
As soon as I saw something being downloaded i immediatly closed the download though some of it was in my download folder.
Afterwards, I scanned my computer several times with Malware Bytes Premium and it found a single malious file, which was quarantined and I deleted it permanently.
I did additional scans and it found nothing.
I have a few question.
1) If I clicked on the link and it began to install and I closed it before the download completed does it still infect my computer?
Furthermore, I never actually opened the file in any manner, I simply pressed the link and once I saw the downloading happen I pressed cancel.
2) I also used adwcleaner and it found some items but I cleaned it as well.
I'm just nervous because I use this computer for banking.
As we speak I'm scanning with Avast.
