Since you experienced problems the other night, it would not hurt to run the AdwCleaner program:
After downloading, save AdwCleaner to the Desktop
Right-click on adwcleaner.exe and select: Run As Administrator
Click the Search button
When done, a text file opens.
Please post (or attach) the content of the AdwCleaner[Sn].txt in your reply.
Maybe it will get rid of some miscellaneous stuff that gets installed without our knowledge.

Also, if you wish to run ESET, don't relinquish your control.
No program is perfect, and you do not want to run it blindly, allowing the program to remove what it finds. It is best to uncheck Remove found threats, and you decide what is to be removed. I really do not expect it to find anything serious in your system, but, in any event, you need to be the one who decides what goes.
These are the instructions that I normally use:
ESET Online Scanner:
First, temporarily disable your Anti-Virus. You do not have to, but, taking this action allows for ESET to run a little faster.
Info: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs - BleepingComputer.com
If possible, use Internet Explorer for this scan.
Right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu and select: Run as Administrator
Go here to run the Scan:
ESET Online Scanner
When prompted, allow the Add-On/Active X to install.
Under Scan Settings, make sure that the option Remove found threats is not checked, and the option Scan Archives is checked.
Click on Advanced Settings and select the following:
Scan for potentially unwanted applications
Scan for potentially unsafe applications
Enable Anti-Stealth Technology
Now, click on: Start
The virus signature database begins to download. (This make take some time.)
Next, the Online Scan begins automatically.
Please do not touch the Mouse or keyboard during the scan, otherwise it may stall.
When the scan completes, click: List Threats
Please copy and provide the information presented in your reply. (If no malware is found, a list is not presented.)
Click the Back button, and then click the Finish button.
1. Quarantined files are stored in the folder: \Local settings\Application data\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus\Quarantine
2. Make sure you re-enable your Anti-Virus

I recently just discovered that a file of mine was missing. I was curious if there was a place or log where I can look to see if I actually did delete it or moved it to another place. If I did delete this file, what is the best way to go about recovering it. Thanks
