Not really sure what to do with this one. Any help would be appreciated.
I was sent a program (or rather a plug-in) which came with the x-force keygen. I didn't know what this was until I opened it, after which I closed it and deleted it along with the plug-in that required a key; I didn't use it to generate a key. However I know these can come with viruses so I became pretty paranoid, here's what I did next:

1. Went to bleepingcomputer.com and this https://answers.yahoo.com/question/inde ... 616AAB5qCA yahoo answer for advice
2. Installed ran sophos virus removal tool
3. Installed malwarebytes, SUPER antispyware (not in safe mode), and ran them in safe mode, however superanitspyware fails to update its content in both safe with network and regular mode
4. installed and ran CCleaner avast (i'm currently using 360 which is a Chinese anti-virus)

The only visable problem I have experienced is that after registering for an account at bleepingcomputer, I get a "you don't have permission to view this page" on every page of their website. I can't even log out or contact admin.

Malwarebytes, SUPER antispyware did find some generic malware and spyware (gen-morix, gen-bot and gen-startpage) which I removed. Avast found some trojans in win32, and ccleaner cleaned a load of random crap off.

How do I get a concrete answer to whether there's anything to worry about on my PC?

Please help. I'm really worried now.....:(

EDIT: Avast told me to do a boot up scan, which I did, and it turned up a few things:
Three autoIt-Banker-BGs
Two win32:PUP-gen
a win 32:patch-HO
and a few corrupted files (not sure if thats true though, a few were in steam games which sometimes set off my antivirus anyway)

Avast seems to be targetting CCleaner so some of these may be from that

In addition, I just installed IObit Uninstaller, but it's showing a few programs were installed today, which they weren't, and the majority of these are my banking programs, the one's sent by my bank. Not sure if that's something to worry about or just a false report, especially since my 360 program manager (Chinese) shows they were installed last year.

By posting just a description of your problems it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're looking for.

We need to know what's running on your computer so that we can give you appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, and which tells you what we need you to post so that we can help you.

This thread will now be closed.

If you still need help, please start a new thread with:-
  • DDS logs (DDS.txt & Attach.txt)
  • Details of the problems you're experiencing.

If for any reason you can't run DDS, please let us know in your post.
