Hello, So i was doing my usual Malwarebytes scan after my PC started acting weird, and i found something in my file system called Spyware.Zbot, so i was told to force reboot my PC to delete the threat, and after running a few scans after that with Malwarebytes, nothing was found. i am happy i might have gotten rid of it but at the same time im worried something might still be lurking in my PC.

 

Here are the logs provided by Malwarebytes when it found the threat
