MS Visual Studio 2010 running in background

Recommended Posts

I tried to open a website and immediately got a pop-up box saying I needed to Update Adobe.  I immediately closed it (without updating) but it kept popping up.  I ran Malwarebytes and it removed 3 items.  I restarted but there was still a problem as there were two instances of MS Visual Studio 2010 running (only visible in task manager) and they were using tons of memory.  I would End Process, but they would immediately restart.  Under Startup (in msconfig) I could disable these two items, but it would not save the changes.  I was finally able to delete the file and when I tried to reboot, I experienced problems so I rebooted as Last Known Configuration.  Everything seems okay right now...the items are no longer in Startup,..and Malwarebytes doesn't find anything (I had to reinstall Malwarebytes), but how can I be sure?  Thanks.
