firstly, let that be a lesson to you ..... don't click on anything that you don't understand.

next, if you go to this link
https://free.kaspersky.com/endoflife

it's the online scanner from Kaspersky. i've used it a few times.

then, if you manage to clear that nasty ransom ware you realy need to invest in som internet security software. not just anti virus software.

funnily enough Kaspersky do a terrific one. (i've been using for several years now.)
Eset do a good one
and of course mcafee do one.
Norton do one,
(but I went off them a while back. not because their software was bad, it's just that when i had reason to reinstall the software they wanted me to buy another licence. yeah right bye bye mr norton hello kaspersky.)

once you have decided on a security suite and have set it up, you can go to this link
https://www.grc.com/intro.htm

click the shields up picture at the bottom of screen
in the services menu tab select 'shields up'
click on proceed
click on submit
on the next screen you will see towards the bottom of the screen several tabs
File sharing, common ports, all service ports, messenger spam, browser headers.

starting from left to right click on these in turn. it will do a scan of your system and report back to you how secure or not your system is.
