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:
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.
