Malwarebytes just found adware.agent on my computer, which is odd as I rarely use that computer on-line and alwasy keep it updated with Norton and Malwarebytes. Is this a real threat?

Also, before this computer found adware.agent, a few times malwarebytes was disabled. I had to enable again. This has happened on another computer from time to time and I fixed this problem by reinstalling malwarebytes. Can this be related to a virus and even to adware.agent infection>
