    Yes CR, I believe many of us know that one. Sound's as though you ask on the, self-help, reassurance premise? Good.

    Aside from TheQuest's sound advice, alway's go for multiple opinion's (disappointment, less likely). AnswersThatWork, BleepingComputer, and CastleCops are but three that quickly came to mind. VirusTotal for dwnld's and suspicious file's.

    What TheQuest meant, for example process explorer, one of the utilities available from that linked page, will do exactly as you might when trying to determine information on a given process. Instead of you directly loading the search engine, pe perform's it for you after choosing to do so from it's context menu.

    As far as what to do, that depend's on several factor's; operating system, installed software, which program or site is making the claim, and whether your system has suddenly become unstable. You could start by supplying which os you're on and software you use for "bad process" scanning.

    That combination is better than most for a novice. Which browser?

    Confuscious say, "an ounce of prevention's (courtesy fellow member Sukarof) worth a pound of cure." Take your time, get back when you've had a chance to digest the content on these link's. Do yourself a favor while browsing through CC's wiki page, don't go loading all those application's because they're free. Compatibility issue's are almost as bad as unwanted guest's. Registry cleaner's? No good for the uninformed.
