    Avast Antivirus

    If you've previously encountered issues with Malwarebytes then you may want to avoid using it.

    If Avast and Adwcleaner find no malware issues then you may have eliminated any problems though the use of "Torrents" may expose your computer to additional risks.

    Other scanners that may help with malware issues are listed at

    Good luck...
