Just a few days ago, I found out that my little sister downloaded some infected file from the internet, onto our computer. She said she typed in 'keygen' into google and clicked on the first link, and then downloaded a file from that website. After yelling and giving her a long lecture, Norton started spazzing and saying I was infected with Trojan.Adclicker. I then ran my computer in safe mode and did a scan, Norton picked up the trojans, quarrantined it and I then I deleted it. I then downloaded Prevx1, TrojanRemover(?), did an online trojan scan just to make sure again.
Then, 2 days later, Norton poped up saying I was infected with Infostealer, which really made me paranoid. But it said it deleted the file immediately. I downloaded all those programs above, did a norton scan to make sure.
Now, I'm just wondering if there was any other way to make sure my computer is 100% clean, and that the infostealer virus or the trojans aren't hiding from the scans.
