    My laptop was running a little slow so I ran Malewarebytes and it detected a possible threat of worm.mazebat I put it into quarantine. It was located in c:\windows\temp\tmp then a bunch of numbers. Should I delete it from the quarantine?
    Is this sufficient to get rid of this, what else should I run?
    Anything else I should do? When I googled worm.mazebat I can't tell which sites are accurate or which are scams.

    I usually run malewarebytes almost daily and I ran it yesterday with nothing found.

    Installed avg and ran that. Nothing came up. Now running the avg mabezat removal tool, is this enough to make sure everything is removed?

    Google up what your mazebat worm actually does- there are often specific ways to detect behavior and to remove these things that malwarebytes and AVG can't do.

    Avira is a pretty good scan as well. Get it free on cnet.
