Excuse formatting, I’m on mobile.

Hi all! I’ve always been paranoid about my computer security. Going back to school hasn’t helped my situation. Haha!

One of my classmates sent me a link to a doc on an unsecured site. I viewed the doc and copy/pasted some text.

On a different page, I did click on what I thought were two links, but were word doc downloads. They downloaded successfully, but were deleted without opening.

And, my email was open the whole time.

I do have McAfee and ran a full system scan and it came back clear.

Could I have gotten a virus or malware or any other nasties?

Sorry, I’m not a security expert at all. Any advice would be gladly welcomed! I really appreciate all you people of Reddit! Thank you!
