Windows 7: I think i got hacked.

I think i got hacked.

Hello, I recently downloaded a file on which AVG listed as a Malware. After that, Windows explorer went crazy and started not responding an back again, and then i finally closed AVG and deleted the file myself. After that, i ran a full scan but they didn't find anything. Now the thing is, after two days, i was downloading something from usenet, and unzbin said that i exceeded maximum connections, even though i didn't. So, just to make sure i changed my password and waited a whole day. I started downloading, it was fine for a few seconds, and then it exceeded maximum connections again. So i'm thinking someone hacked into my computer through the virus, and is using my usenet account. Now how do i get rid of this someone? Or how do i know for sure if there is someone? I'm getting paranoid. My credit card is linked to the usenet account, so i just can't take any risk. Please help me. Thanks, Alex.

Usenet is quite often related to piracy.
Given the fact you disregarded the warnings of "hey this is a bad file",
normally means you are used to the false positives from key generators.
Just remember hackers are hackers (whether they re from the piracy side or not)

On the other hand is there any way you can look and see were the last few ips you connected to usenet was from?(much like you can with gmail)

Run Malware, SAS and CCleaner, SFC scan now and see what comes up!
Then do a system restore in the safe mode and see if that helps. IMO
Change passwords and ID along the way.
