I thought you already had. Run it and attach the log file it creates.

If you do nothing the short answer is no. I have told you what to do without having to download or run SAS, but I don't understand the reluctance to do so if it is supposed to be able to detect this. If it is active then all those change registry entries, etc. would be present.

I have already told you what to do, if it is only in the chest a protected area (and then only to allow you to scan it in the future) then that is OK.

No browser protects from viruses. They can do things like block certain websites that have been reported as bad and block spoofed url's. Internet Explorer is good at both but all the browsers have some degree of those features. No browser will scan for viruses, however. That is the function of things like Avast!
