Did I mess up?

Recommended Posts



I have  nagging doubt that I have embeded a virus on my PC. Two days ago I noticed some downloads I had not asked for. One was from Spigot Browser extension, one adobe flash and the other was Malware Virus Protection. Both had the same date and time of download.


I decided to uninstall them and went to do this and although they were there in the uninstall section it said they were unavailable. However, i tried to uninstall the malware program anyway and during the process I got a text box asking if I agreed to let the program alter the HD. I agreed to this thinking it was part of the process and now the program has gone from my download files.


I did the same to Adobe Flash but left the Spigot one alone. I then decided to scan my system with my Bitdefender Internet Security 2016 which showed nothing. But I was still worried so bought Malwarebytes Malware Premium. The scan from this showed up the Spigot which I have deleted. 


My concern is the Adobe Flash and Malware Virus Protection programs, are they still there and have I made them unfindable even for Megabytes?


Any feedback appreciated.

I'm not sure about "Megabytes", as I've never heard of that program. :(
However, some malware requires the use of multiple, different, specialized tools and scanners, not just Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM), for complete removal.
You may indeed have some malware remnants or damage therefrom on the system.
