A while ago I got a pop-up asking me to complete a survey, but at the time I was on Wikipedia. It was not a Wikipedia ad. I minimised and it stayed there, so I assumed it was coming from a local source. It disappeared before I really had a chance to do anything further. I have McAfee Total Protection and tried scanning. It found nothing. I then downloaded BitDefender Free Edition (it seemed the best free antivirus from the quick reads I did.) I scanned and it found a few things here and there. I removed them and scanned again. Nothing was found. Since then, the Virus Shield constantly gives me notifications that it has either quarantined items, or that it could not fix and item and a restart is required. All these are in the directory "C:\Windows\Temp\" and the files are then in folders named "tmp0000" followed by 4 more characters. There seem to be about 150 of them.
Is it being silly or am I infected by something. If these are all false positives then I think I'll uninstall and try Avast! (At least I've used it before and know what to expect)
Bitdefender has already picked up some false positives in the form of OS .ISOs. (CentOS, FreeNAS and Windows Memphis disk images)
I wouldn't be too surprised if it's a virus actually, my PCs given me a little trouble lately that could be caused by it.
