(Sorry about my bad English, I'm a Finn)

 

Hi! This is my first post, and sadly it is about a negative topic...

 

My OS is Windows 8.1. I was just about to do a search on Google when I noticed a small white head-like icon on the taskbar in the lower-right corner of the screen (or whatever the thing is called where you can see whether you are connected to the internet or not, and battery charge, etc.). When I took my mouse over it, it disappeared. Now I'm scared that I have some kind of spyware on my computer, copying all my confidential files to someone. Does such spyware/malware exist which creates a small head-like icon into the taskbar-thingy? I'm currently running a scan with the latest Malwarebytes Anti-malware and Comodo Internet Security Free Edition. I'm also worried whether it is safe to be connected to the internet or not...  :(

Hello,

 

What did the Anti-Malware program report?

What did your COMODO  antivirus program report after scanning with it ?

 

Can you take a snapshot image and then attach in a reply ?

Hi, I can't access either of the links. Both of them shorten the url to "https://index.php- -" and give an error page ("The website cannot be accessed" is the direct translation of the error from Finnish to English). But both Comodo and Anti-Malware gave a clean report, with some installers (which I know to be clean) reported as possibly unwanted software by Anti-Malware. That is probably due to them containing ads for toolbars etc.
