    What characteristics of your computer make you believe it is a virus? You need to be more specific for us to answer your question.

    Any anti-virus from Microsoft is sub-standard. Uninstall it and get one of these free anti-virus: Avast,Avira,AVG,Kaspersky,Panda Security,or 360 Total Security.

    If you have a virus, return the machine to factory settings and get a proper antivirus

    Plenty of other choices, MSE (microsoft security essentials) isn't a great AV anyway

    Try AVAST, AVG , Bitdefender - all have free versions

    Maybe you should have checked some extra boxes for malwarebytes to scan those.

    There's software from the same people that made Malwarebytes called ADWcleaner,

    It will remove any malicious software from your web browsers.

    I seriously doubt Malwarebytes did not miss any viruses. It seems to work for me when my computer was infested was porn advertisements.
