    As stated previously run a full scan using Malware Bytes and you should be good to go!

    Remember to always update your AV to the latest version before scanning.

    I use SMADAV for cleaning all flash drive viruses. Haven't had a single problem with flash drives since.

    Combofix + AWremover.. You can find them at bleepingcomputer -> I wouldn't download them from other places.

    Combofix will kill all processes and reboot your computer, so save your work before running!

    Actually, my wife gets them from coupon sites too. Adware and what not that I clean out every now and then for her but I do know that downloads do it as well... the porn thing was a joke so please don't be offended.
