I think its possible I fell for a phishing email, was just a reflex. But anyway since then computer feels like its slower/ has less memory avail. Maybe I'm being paranoid but can the smart people here help me run the needed scans to help clean up this mess? Thanks

We need to check some logs, in order to say if the computer is infected or not. To do so...
Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop. --> IMPORTANT
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
If your antivirus software detects the tool as malicious, it’s safe to allow FRST to run. It is a false-positive detection.
If English is not your primary language, right click on FRST.exe/FRST64.exe and rename to FRSTEnglish.exe/FRST64English.exe
- Double-click the FRST icon to run the tool. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
- Press Scan button and wait for a while.
- The scanner will produced two logs on your Desktop: FRST.txt and Addition.txt.
- Please attach the content of these two logs in your next reply.
(To attach the files, click on the More Reply Options at the bottom right of the reply area, and then choose Attach File)
