How can I find out the source of an infection?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to research how my computer got infected.  I can tell the date and time, the file name and infection name/type.

What I'd like to do is see what got launched or installed, where did the file come from etc.  That way if I did something stupid to get it on my computer I'll know not to do that again.

Hi ferrellr :)

Without any additional information: logs, VirusTotal scan of the infected file(s), your browsing habits, what websites you visited recently, what programs you installed recently, etc. there's not much we can do to help you with your question.
