    Yes, there is 100% chances of Malware to get back to your system as soon as you start exploring Folders, restoring backed up data, accessing drives, or installing previously downloaded softwares.

    You should do a FULL scan of your PC before using it further.

    You can download any one of available Antivirus softwares over the net. After downloading, install it, update it, and do a full system scan.

    Try Norton:

    Direct Link for 30 day full functional trial. If you want a free solution, you can also try

    Microsoft Security Essentials

    Choose your version based on your OS.

    For additional safety, you can download CCleaner, a small program that will remove unnecessary junk from your system.
