So I did something stupid and tried to download an emulator from Coolrom without googling whether it was safe first and got myself a package of viruses. I think I got rid of most of them (my Ad-Aware detected and deleted a trojan right away) but I ran Spybot and Malware Bytes anyways and ran Symantec and cleaned everything out with CCleaner after a system restore just in case. Everything seems to be back to normal but Spybot is consistently getting two threats detected.
First one is Win32.Downloader.gen
Second one is Conduit.CommunityAlerts which I found the exact folder it was detecting in my Program Files but it's completely empty.
--- Search result list ---
Win32.Downloader.gen: [SBI $82F4FAFD] Data (File, nothing done)
Conduit.CommunityAlerts: [SBI $CD21D057] Class ID (Registry key, fixing failed)
Anybody know what's going on? I swear if I get rid of this I won't ever attempt to pirate games again...
I don't think Conduit ever had a chance to hijack my browsers since it never appeared on my browsers at all (I have Internet Explorer and Google Chrome). I honestly didn't have any affect from the viruses since I think my hoard of antivirus softwares were so quick to quarantine and delete anything threatening from the file I downloaded but I still want to be sure that it's not affecting anything since for some reason my webcam application turned on by itself this morning...
