Ive recently discovered that my bank card was being used fraudulently. My bank advised that I check the security of my laptop.

Ive run Malwarebytes, Avast, SuperAntispyware and all come through clear.

I did uninstall ZoneAlarm a few months ago as it kept failing to start and switched to running on Windows Firewall and Avast AV.

I just installed Comodo as I could not re-install ZoneAlarm and after the installation completed a popbox box showed the following message System Restore completed successfully. Your system has been restored to (same date as when card was fraudulently used). Your documents have not been affected..

Ive also noted recently that login pages with the secure padlock often reload and claim Ive entered incorrect login details.

Im a little freaked out. Could be a coincidence or maybe not. Are there any other ways to check Im not affected by keyloggers etc? Could other devices (phones or pads) on same home network be affected?

Please would you kindly assist. Any and all advice appreciated. Thank you.
