Hello.First of all English is not my primary language so sorry for my bad English.Im using windows 10 and yesterday as I was using my computer a windows defender warning came up saying that a threat was detected and that it put it in the quarantine.So I opened windows defender and there were 2 backdoor viruses and it recommended me to delete them,so thats what I did.After that I did a scan with malwarebytes and it also detected some backdoor threats so I deleted them.Now every scan I do says that my computer is clean but I'vre read on some forums that there are viruses that "hide" and are not detectable by antivirus programms.What should I do?

Malware that hides or evades detection are commonly called Rootkits. Malwarebytes uses a proprietary low level driver similar to some anti-rootkit (ARK) scanners to locate hidden files and special techniques which enables it to detect a wide spectrum of threats including active rootkits, zero-day malware and malware in the wild.

Usually when a computer is infected with malware there most likely will be obvious indications (signs of infection and malware symptoms) that something is wrong. Do you have such signs or symptoms?

You can always supplement your anti-virus or get a second opinion by performing an Online Virus Scan.....ESET is one of the more effective online scanners.

I did a scan with ESET and everything seems to be fine.I was just worried that there was still a virus somewhere in my computer,maybe in the registry.Maybe I just read too many forums and got scared haha.Nevermind,everything seems to be okay.Thank you for your help.
Edit:I read the malware symptoms and it said something about IP Blacklisting.So I went to whatismyip to check if it is blacklisted and it said that I was blacklisted on l2.apews.org.

Blacklisted IP Address: If you receive notification that your IP address has been blacklisted, consider this about as sure a sign as any that your PC is not in good hands — there’s a very good chance it means your system has been compromised and is being used as one tentacle in far-reaching, spam-sending botnet.


WhatIsMyIP.com is a service that provides IP address information. As far as I know, they do not send out notifications but they do have a BlackList Check page as explained here.

Blacklist Check page...This article explains why that happens and how to get off a blacklist...Each blacklist database has its own criteria for flagging IP addresses and compiling its own list of online offenders. Those criteria could include a variety of "listings": technical, policy, and evidence-based...If your IP address has been blacklisted and you want to investigate, you'll need to visit the blacklist's website and do a lookup on your IP address. Most blacklist databases will provide general listing reasons, but don't list specific email addresses tied to blacklisted IP addresses.
