Not finding any viruses

Recommended Posts

Hey, quick question really, I recently downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware due to my girlfriends brother downloading a file on my computer to which strange things started happening, run a scan on malwarebytes and true enough it found 29 viruses, got rid of all these and then found another 13 on another scan, got rid of these and since i have scanned every day and it finds nothing.

I am going to buy a licence for malwarebytes' as to use the realtime scanned but until then i am using one called Avira. The part i dont get, malwarebytes keeps finding nothing when scanning yet the realtime scanner on Avira keeps finding infected files trying to run, the last of which being:

Virus or unwanted program 'TR/Dldr.FakeRean.33 [trojan]'

detected in file 'C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temp\~.exe.

Action performed: Move file to quarantine

Can anyone help me with this, Malwarebytes' struggling to pick up these files or is Avira reporting false things?

Thanks very much
