What is hidden?

Question

I have installed a free download of Zonealarm firewall which seems to be working great, then I went to pest scan and scanned my computer and said I had 131 in there. What to do now? I wondered if when I paid credit card bills on line and student loans, and car payment online if I should be concerned that my information has been stolen? Where exactly does all that information stay stored, on my computer or the company's computer that I am paying at the time? I like the firewall as it has asked me what to allow to access the internet, it has only been 4 days but is blocking lots of stuff so it says. It also says under outbound protection that 16 programs have been secured, does this mean that these are some of the pests? Thank you for your time and looking forward to your response. I really like your website, so much great information. Also, now that firewall installed I am assuming that I have nothing to worry about when I am online to pay stuff it should keep these pest contained? Need to know if I should download the pest control software to get rid of them, or take it to my local tech guy who I bought the system from? If I leave them in there what will they do? I scanned with Norton and says no virus, update to Symantec 3 - 4 times per week. Thank you for your time looking forward to your response. Amiee
