Hi PapaSmurf, I have a router WiFi too, but it has to be well configured, secured, and can be bypassed too by known hijackers (although this is "remote possibility") :D
Very true..I guess that is what all the other software is for...lol  ;D

I ran a complete scan with ST today and it found a spyware "Kiswin" Avast didn't find (got it with the freeware unlocker, with the ebay shortcut).

Don't forget the job isn't done upon detection, a) confirm the detection at virustotal, b) if detected by multiple scanners send the sample to avast to improve their detections.

The eBay shortcut is unwanted, I don't know if you had an option to install it. :(
Avast protects well!!!

When you are installing you have got the option to uncheck it.
