Hi there, I recently downloaded and ran MalwareBytes on my 3 months old Notebook. The program found a Trojan.Agent.Trace. It was quarantined successfully. But I want to ensure that I’m completely safe before i Change all my Passwords. Although I had not downloaded anything suspicious until the scan, in fact hardly anything, it is very strange, for me at least, that MalwareBytes found a Virus.
