Sorry it took me so long to get back to you on this. Been away from the computer for awhile. Hopefully no one has reinfected the computer. Other family members have been using it since I've been gone.

here's the OTS file

As for the Embarq On-line security, I'd like to keep it if possible, just maybe turn it off. It comes with my on-line service.
Maybe I can turn it off via the computer manager, but I don't know if that will work.

After the OTS was run, it asked to reboot my computer. After I rebooted, a window popped up, showing a Document file and saying that I needed to pick a program to open this file. My Wordpad doesn't work for some reason, so I used Wordperfect 10 to open it. Now I can't find the file. Other than that, the computer seems to be running fine.

I'm going to run the Malwarebytes now and post it's results.

If you just disable the anti-virus part from the programme settings it should be OK

Everything from my side looks Hunky Dory so .....................

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean :)

Double click OTScanit once again and you should see a CleanUp! button, press that button, you may get prompted by your firewall that OTScanit wants to contact the internet, allow this, a cleanup.txt will be downloaded, a message dialog will ask you if you want to proceed with the cleanup process, click Yes. This will delete all the tools you have downloaded plus itself

Now to get you off to a good start we will re-set your restore points so that all the bad stuff is gone for good. Then if you need to restore at some stage you will be clean. There are several ways to reset your your restore point but this is my method:

1. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
2. On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
3. Click NEXT
4. Enter a name e.g. Clean
5. Click CREATE

You now have a clean restore point, to get rid of the bad ones:

1. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
2. In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
3. Click OK
4. The System will do some calculation and the display a dialogue box with TABS
5. Select the More Options Tab.
6. At the bottom will be a system restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
7. Accept the Warning and select OK again, the program will close and you are done



Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free program: It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?


Keep safe :)
