Okay so one a yesterday i turned my computer on and walked a way to do some stuff, a while later a came back and my computer was still in the loading windows screen, i had to turn off the computer right away and go somewere thoe. when i came back i turned on my computer as usual, and a little blue shield was in my system tray, it said windows has had an important update and had an automatic restart. i didnt believe it because it wasnt the usual yellow shield, so i scanned my laptop with superantispyware. here are the log files for the scan

it said to restart the computer so i did, then i did another scan and it didnt find anything so i thought everything was okay. but i dont know how long i had it and im worried about identity theft. im 14 and my mom is old, lol she has used our computer for banking before, a while ago. and she tried to the day before this happened but she couldnt log in because she forgot her login stuff i am also not sure if its gone because ive read other people's posts of a new vundo that cant be scanned.. and im afraid mine upgraded to that... i also scanned my computer with avast afterwards and found nothing, and i downloaded malwarebytes and scanned and still found nothing.. i am thinking about using vundofix.. will it hurt my computer if i dont have the vundo anymore? and should i be worrying about identity theft? thanks :)
