Could I have infected my PC?

Recommended Posts

Hi hope this post is appropriate here:


I have  nagging doubt that I may 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. All 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  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 after checking the program has gone from my downloads folder.


I did the same with Adobe Flash but left the Spigot one alone. I then decided to scan my system with my Bitdefender Internet Security 2016 which showed no threats. 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, could they still there and did I make them unfindable even for Megabytes?


Again sorry if this is the wrong section to post and for my lack of technical speak.


Any feedback appreciated.
