Today I woke up, and turned on my computer.
I had been using it for almost an hour, and then I realized my desktop was updating every 1 minute.
Every time it updated, it had a new icon (Icon is the thing that indicates the logo is a shortcut). Eg. Green Check Mark, Gray X etc.
I immediately though this was a virus, and ran 5 virus scans. After doing that, I uninstalled the programs, and restarted my computer (No viruses were found). When it then was booted back up again, it was VERY slow and did not want to do as I wanted to. Keep in mind it has 16 Gigs of Ram and a i7 3.60 Quad Core Processor. I ran a disc reset, and got the computer back to factory settings.
What I am wondering is: Would the virus have become removed when I did the reset to factory settings (If there was any virus)?
