So I went to register with MyDigitalLife forums, and suddenly I get the message:

"401 Unauthorized Your IP has been used by Spam Bots to attempt to register on this forum multiple times"

I just put my computer together 2 days ago, and after windows, my antivirus (bitdefender) was within the first 5 things I installed. My computer shows no other signs of weirdness (ie. fans spinning up for no reason, shutdown/startup issues, decreased down/upload speeds), however I have read that it can be difficult to know if you are part of a botnet.

Can anybody comment on this?
