Customer Question

I clicked on a link from a spam e-mail and am worried that I may have inadvertently compromised my computer with surreptitious data collection code. I do not know if my computer has been compromised but would like to check. Is there any way to do that? I understand there could be legitimate programs that may be collecting data and sending it out but want to ensure I am not giving sensitive data to the wrong people. Thanks.
