Well there is no indication of a bootkit

Lets run a quick scan with Malwarebytes to see if there is any residue. Are you currently experiencing any problems ?

Posted Image Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here.

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
Extra Note:

If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

It does not look to bad. However, sometimes you may notice problems that were not at first apparent - so I would ask you to use the computer normaly for a day or so after I remove my tools and tidy you up. Just to be sure that no damage was caused to the system files.

Subject to no further problems :unsure:

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems

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

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

Run OTL
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following

    :Commands
    [resethosts]
    [purity]
    [emptytemp]
    [EMPTYFLASH]
    [CLEARALLRESTOREPOINTS]
    [Reboot]

  • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
  • Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done

Run OTL and hit the cleanup button. It will remove all the programmes we have used plus itself. aswMBR may just be deleted from the desktop

We will now confirm that your hidden files are set to that, as some of the tools I use will change that
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Do not show hidden files and folders.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.

Posted Image Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application.

Upgrading Java:
  • Go to this site and click Do I have Java
  • It will check your current version and then offer to update to the latest version

SPRING CLEAN

Download and run Puran Disc Defragmenter
For the first run I would recommend a boot defrag and disk check. This may take an hour or so but it will ensure that there are no problems with the disc or file system

Posted Image


Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:

Posted Image Malwarebytes. Update and run weekly to keep your system clean

Download and install FileHippo update checker and run it monthly it will show you which programmes on your system need updating and give a download link

It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visit

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read our little guide How did I get infected in the first place ?
Keep safe :)

YOU are a WIZARD, and that would be in the British (Harry Potter) way! Thanks for all of this!

What frosts me about this whole virus situation is that I keep everything updated. Java is an exception. I've tried to download it four times now, and it won't download. I even tried calling them, but there was a 40 min. wait, and I declined. You may have done something with your cleaning that will enable me to download it now, though.

I run Norton Live Update (to update virus definitions) twice a day, every day. I defrag. I use disk cleanup. I'm up to date with Windows Update. I'm trying. . .

I'll do all these steps that you suggest starting right after I finish this. I'll also send you a message in 24 hours or so to let you know that all is still well. I expect that it will be. Interestingly, Norton has started popping a box up to say "X is safe to run," a nice touch since I've paid boo-coodles of bucks for their protection. . .

Thanks tons!!

My pleasure - but keep me updated please. I think really that it is the luck of the draw as to whether you get infected or not. I, myself have yet to have an unintentional infection, just lucky I suppose


The file updater from Filehippo should help with the other programme updates that are not reliant on an auto-update system

Let me know how you proceed on Java as I have a few tricks up my sleeve for that

I have finished everything except downloading Java, and I'm on my way there now. The only thing I wonder about is a Puran result that said:

Pagefile Fragments 1
MFT Fragments 1
Registry Fragments 1

Is this a problem?

Java was downloaded with no problem this time. All of your other suggestions were downloaded or will be downloaded. I used my machine heavily today in various ways, with not a hint of a problem. NOScripts was an excellent idea. THANK YOU SO MUCH for everything!
