Just to protect yourself I would
Scan with my anti virus

Download and run malwarebytes
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: Malwarebytes

Then clean out any remnants of any software with ccleaner
http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

The first two are more of protection than a cure. Any unexpected change should be checked with a scan with the anti virus.
The third will clean out any remnants of software that has been uninstalled.

a further recommendation is to use Fences, which is a free download.
