Someone install cheat engine in my PC
 
A visitor install cheat engine in my pc, I remove it, should I worry about other surprise this thing may have install? A kid trying to cheat at plant and zombie, canít you believe it?

It was a friend of my son.

This is why I always lock my screen when I leave my PC unattended for more than 10 seconds. Have you gone through the Add/Remove list in the control panel to see if there are any new programs you didn't have previously?

It's my son PC. I run a scan ( MSE ) and malwarebyte, everything look fine

Ah ok thought it was your own personal computer. You should be fine just keep an eye on the processes in the task manager and any suspicious network traffic.

Cheat Engine is not malware so you are fine. As for the kid I would have a small talk with him and then lock your pc.

I would worry about that becasue some Key loggers will only activate at certain times to avoid detection.
So what was this cheat engine fore?
