    You said "you're", am I still infected with the ZeroAccess rootkit?
    And my computer has been acting fine, I'm installing some Windows Updates right now.

    Do you know anything about Steam, the game's platform, I bought a game a few months ago using my Credit Card, if the information was encrypted, do I have to cancel my credit card?

    The easier way be to call your credit company, tell them what happened and make sure they keep an eye on any possibly suspicious transactions.

    I called them today and they reported no odd transactions, so I will keep an eye out in the future.
    Thank you very much for your time and help. It's been much appreciated.
    Though I'd just like to figure out what a rootkit does? Does it steal my information?
