    Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro.
    Boot into safe mode and do a full scan with both.
    You can run RKill too.

    Malware free version will do just fine, pro version mostly for real time and more targeted scanning but you probably wanna go ahead and run that.

    Avast is a good antivirus too. AVG is also worth the mention. Or you can search google for the best antivirus and download them from Torrent :X

    You should've just bought an AV the last time you saw one on sale. They always get knocked down to dirt cheap prices.

    First recommendation is do not download a torrent without scanning the comments. If there is a virus, excepting new torrents, someone will have mentioned it.

    The only sure clean of your system requires a reformat and reinstallation, and with some virus and Trojans, even this is not sure because they install in the bios of the computer and in the rom of the hard disk.

    Otherwise,
    Malwarebytes (Trial is good, though I use the paid version)
    install and scan with Microsoft Security essentials. If clean uninstall.
    Then scan with an online scanner such as Panda.
    then scan with root kit revealer.

    Then learn to safely torrent.
