Hello,


I'm glad to hear that. Are you still having the browser problem, or did that stop as well?

Hello,

Ok, unless you have any other questions, I think we can wrap this up. :)


Congratulations!! Your logs look clean! :)

Now we need to do a little house keeping and remove the tools we have used.


  • Click on OTL.exe
  • Click the CleanUp button
  • If it tells you to reboot click Yes



It is always a good idea to have ONE Anti-Spyware program that runs in real time along with your Anti-Virus. You can have more the one installed, but all others should be used only as On Access scanners.


Now the next list is some programs I like to recommend to people to help keep your computer safer. Keep in mind that these are all optional.

MalwareBytes Anti Malware
This is an exellent On Access Anti-Malware Scanner.

SuperAntiSpyware
This is an Anti-Spyware program that will help protect your PC.


TFC
This will help delete all temporary files.

Opera
This is an alternative for Internet Explorer. Opera is a more secure browser.



You should also make sure Windows is up to date. You can simply go to Start and go to Windows Update to find out. I would recommend turning on Automatic Updates.

Heres how to do it:

  • Go to Start
  • Click on the Control Panel
  • Click on Security
  • Then click on Windows update
  • Then settings to turn Windows Update On/Off



You should check and make sure that you keep your Anti-Virus up to date. This is also a crucial part of your security. You can do this by clicking on your Anti-Virus and clicking on update. If your AV has an automatic update feature, i would recommend turning it on in the settings menu.
