Windows 7: Is there a chance I am okay?

Is there a chance I am okay?

I have been sick for several weeks. Yesterday I got home & dl'd Chrome Beta 4. @ some point , while wathcing Justin) I was hit with a varation of the 2009 antivirus fake scan. I instantly ctrl/alt/del and hit task manager , then shut it down via explorer. No issue.

Just a few hours ago I stupidily restored back to the day before I ran into 2009 antivirus xp (I have a lot of times, never had a problem) however the restore apperantly ignited the program in chromes cache and MSE lit up (I was running a scan anyhow) with this. I then ran eset online scanner. all clean.
I am stilll very sick and being as this only happened for a split second via a restore & was caught before launching is there any way I can believe I am safe?
I'm running Win 7 64 bit Pro. Due to the season I have a TON of info and purchase as well as the zune marketplace etc.
Is MSE up to the job of catching this due to the rather unique fashion it ocurred to me or am I forced to call my credit companies , bank etc the day before X-Mas.?
Please let me know if there are additional things I can check for in the registry or whatever. So far I do not see anything MS mentions in the link they sent me to that is snipped. I could really use help here.
Scared out of my mind,
J23

Just to be sure, do an addition scan with Malwarebytes

If there's anything there that shouldn't be, MB should pick it up.
Don't forget to update the Virus Definitions before starting the scan.

Good Luck.

It really wont affect the scan at all, but if you feel better turning it off, then do so.

MB always comes up with that result the first time you run it, I don't think you should delete it, seeing as it's a legitimate System file, but since nothing else popped up, id say your in the clear, but do keep an eye out for any strange behavior.

What you say is amazing and is fantastic, would you recomend that I keep Malwarebytes on my machine along with MSE? Aslo you mentioned strange behavior...other than the obvious slowing of the machine and what not, what else should I look for? Or would that basically be it?

Yes, id say keep it on your machine, it won't clash with MSE, because i have both, and no problems with either.

Well anything obviously not normal, icons missing, hidden folders that used to show being hidden, random p*rn pop-ups, explorer not starting, there's many things different viruses do. If you do feel that you may have malware on you system, start a new thread here, and include the symptoms.

Definitely keep MB installed and always update it before scanning. It's a valuable addition to the arsenal.

Strange behaviour would be as you guessed, lot of odd/high CPU usage (viewed in task manager) or odd items appearing in msconfig's start up tab

Chances are you are fine (have you wiped Chromes cache/files etc?)

Just run a few extra scans over the next few days.

If you are very concerned, you also download another av like avast/Avira etc and scan with them (especially the boot time scans to scan for rootkits and the like)
