Possible Virus on My Pc?

By Zombode
Jun 6, 2018
  1. One day I was browsing the internet like normal, I went the website genius to look up lyrics for a certain song and all of a sudden a new tab popped up and downloaded something to my pc immediately, I didn't even have a chance to click off. Afterwards I scanned my whole pc with windows defender but it said it couldn't find anything. A day later I got an email saying that there have been many log in attempts for my epic account. Can someone shoot some ideas?

    It sounds like you have a malware infection based on what you're saying.
    There is a super moderator malware molester who could help you sort through it all.

    Until he comes around later when you post in that sub-forum, I recommend you look into third party antiviruses.

    Also there is malwarebytes it will mostly get rid of deep malware infections unless there is a rootkit and possible infection preventing the removal.
