    Is there anyway avast can be compromised showing its operating normally or any other scan engine such as malware bytes and Super Anti Spyware! How would one know if the system is compromised if it operates normally as if it had not been compromised by malware? Would this come up in a OTL log or some other type of utility! If it is compromised how could it be fixed and how can you find out?:confused:

    Try downloading the eicar test virus, that will verify if your antivirus is still working.

    http://www.eicar.org/anti_virus_test_file.htm

    Note: since you have several security programs, enable one at a time and do the download. See if each picks up the eicar.

    To test your firewall, go to Sheilds Up at grc.com
