Can someone tell me if I have a virus? Friday night I turned off my computer. I do have one of those strip surge protectors. I did not unplug the computer.

Later Friday evening, there was a bad storm and our electricity kept going on and off. Saturday morning, when my husband turned the computer on, there was a message regarding 'system32/config/system' either missing or corrupt. I asked geekstogo.com about this and was walked through fixing the problem. Unfortunately, he didn't know how this could've happened.

I am not sure if I had a virus, malware problems or what. He told me to come here to find out the answer.

I am currently using ESET Smart Security Suite for my computer. Can anyone also tell me if this is good or do you recommend something else. I really do not want to go through all of this again.

I appreciate any assistance.
