I think I may have a virus..

I recently downloaded something I wasn't suppose to on the internet..
I scanned it with malware bytes before I opened it and it said it was clean
I did a quickscan with malware bytes too. I have malware bytes pro and MSE
and they both didn't detect anything...
but some users said this file was a virus / rat
Please help! thanks

Hi,

This doesn't pass the 'smell test'. Which users are you referring too? What exactly did you download, and from where? Do not post any links!

If the downloaded file is < 32MB in size, scan it using this online tool, and report the scan results here:

the second I opened it it closed my google chrome and when I opened it it opens new tab and not my home page... Thats what got me worried. I had to make it where it opened google again in settings
all my startup items seem ok.

Hi,

I wonder if there is something else going on here : its not impossible, but improbable, that VirusTotal, MSE and Malwarebytes will miss soemthing like this, if it is indeed malware.

What do you mean by hacked? What was hacked?

Regards,
Golden

Call the credit card, have it cancelled and re-issue a new card with a new account number. Back up all important data, then fresh install W7 and consider it a lesson learned.
