For the past couple of weeks my antivirus (NOD32) keeps blocking a strange website called 'skype-soft.com' after every reboot.  I've also noticed a Steam icon in the taskbar that goes away after a few seconds which is strange because the option to run Steam when Windows starts is unchecked. I did an in-depth scan with NOD32 and I also scanned with Superantispyware and Malwarebytes but none of them found anything.

 

 

Is my computer infected?

Well, it worked. The Steam icon doesn't appear after restart and NOD32 isn't blocking skype-soft.com anymore.

 

I also updated Java from 31 to 66. However, I left System Restore disabled because it just takes up space and it's never worked properly for me anyway.

 

Can you please explain what the nature of the infection was? Was it something serious and should I be worried about stolen passwords etc.?

 

 

Thank you so much for your help!
