    I am not sure what to do. The virus (Win32/Adware.ADON) that was found yesterday and put in quarantine, and I thought cleaned as it said it had done so. It has now found another one, exactly the same in the system restore, I didn't scan for this one it gave me a warning. So that went into quarantine.
    But I have just checked my personal firewall to find two attempts at ICMP flooding attacks and unexpected data in protocol, all of these happened yesterday.
    Yet I have ran Malawarebytes (deep clean) and Spybot, and a full virus scan, and nothing else has been detected.
    This has been slightly worried indeed that something has buried itself deep and can't been got rid off.

    Thank you everyone. I hope that it now tucked away and will stay that way. I am annoyed though that it came from a program I have been using for over a year and my previous AV or Malawarebytes never picked it up.

    Then you are safe once again, since this one did also get moved into the Quarantine;)
