So I was browsing the internet on my samsung galaxy 4 and then clicked on a link on a webpage and it tried to take me to an ad site I don't remember what it was called but before it could load I quickly backed out of the page. I scanned my phone with Avast and 360 security and both of them said I was clean.
I went into my My Files folder and found a white ps.pid file that I have never seen before. I deleted it from my phone and then factory reset my phone. I did that like 3 times heh.
And then I also booted it up in recovery mode cleared my cache partition and did a factory reset from there. And when I went into Safe Mode I found this thing called popupuireciever in my All Aplications in the application manager
Then I still wasn't convinced that my phone was clean so I connected it to my win 8.1 computer and when I opened up my phone files on the computer the ps.pid file was still there so I deleted it and the computer asked if I wanted to permenantly delete it so I did.
Then when I tried to open up Malwarebytes so I could try to scan my phone (which I now know you can't do) and it asked for the admin approval ok thing I said ok but my screen didn't load back and it stayed greyed out like when the computer asks for admin rights.
Then I unplugged my phone and it went back to my screen and then when I tried opening up Malwarebytes again and I clicked ok for the admin rights it stayed greyed out and I couldn't get back to my regular screen.
So I powered off my computer holding down the power button and when I turned it back on it took FOREVER to load and when it did it started doing some updates, when it restarted and took forever to load back again and I finally got into my account I did a system restore to two days before, thinking that I could kill anything that might have transferred onto my computer.
So I did it and once again it took forever to load back and now I'm scanning it with Malwarebytes and I ran Adware Cleaner which found nothing to clean.
What else should I do or am I okay? Also do I need to reset all my passwords?
I'm sorry if I sound paranoid.
Also I don't have an SD card mounted
