adobe reader update suspicious

I may have downloaded an infected version when updating adobe reader. I stopped the download but it was deleting folders, files and copying files. Doesn’t sound good. How do I know if was bad and how much damage was done. I have Norton and updated virus protection also and did fixes. What now?

    If your update coincide with the opening of Adobe, then it is a legitimate update. Most of the time, fake Adobe updates will run from system tray. Others will pop-up even if you don’t have an adobe product installed.

    To make sure that computer is clean. Better run additional malware scan. You may want to carry out online virus scanner. These tools are free and you can run them from the web site of antivirus manufacturer.
