    I was recently going through some files and Windows Defender popped up a warning about this, it says it was removed, further reading it can install rootkits, etc, I'm not currently running any kind of HIPS, so I can't determine that, I only have basic real-time security on this (windows defender, Rising AV and ghostwall) as I'm usually the only one who uses this PC, however I let a friend use it a few days ago and I think this is where the problem came into as I have never experienced any real infection of any kind. I'm currently scanning with avast anti-rootkit and running a scan with windows defender again, any other ideas to make sure I'm clean? I ran Hijack this! and it appears to be clean to me (nothing out of the ordinary/nothing I don't recognize personally)

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Well sorry if the only times I really post here is when I need some help with something. Other than I generally don't have time to browse forums and usually forget, which is why I try to thank people in advance.

    But thanks for all the help anyways.
