How can I check if my PC is a part of botnet?

When I tried to access a site and received this error message:
Your IP has been identified as spam

Protected by: AVH First Defense Against Spam

My IP is also is listed in the PBL, XBL – http://www.spamhaus.org/

I have a Dlink Router to access internet.

Now I’m worried I’m a part of a botnet, etc.

Is there a way to check?

    Scan with MalwareBytes. Enable a firewall.

      I have MBAM real time, and Outpost Firewall
      The scan with Kaspersky inbuilt rootkit did not show anything. Hope I'm safe.

    Scan with your antivirus program, Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, etc. Any of them should be able to identify if you have been infected and be able to remove the infection. If you think you may have a rootkit, use another system to download and create a bootable CD and do the scanning using that disc instead.
