Hello,

Actually, I found almost nothing on your computer, but I can see that you have ran ComboFix a several times, which must have cleaned the most nasty stuff...

The only problem is that your computer is running sluggish?

Waiting for McAfee scan.

Hello,

Mcafee scan is nothing found. One cookie, 3 boot processes. 47 processes. I copied to jpg because there is no scan export. But no upload here to upload a pic.

Zip it and then upload it :)

You are clean, but these steps should improve your computer's performance.

TEMPORARY FILES CLEANER - DISK DEFRAGMENTER

Download TFC to your desktop
  • Open the file and close any other windows.
  • It will close all programs itself when run, make sure to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. The program should not take long to finish its job
  • Once its finished it should reboot your machine, if not, do this yourself to ensure a complete clean

THEN

Download Flush Flash from Here and follow the easy to use instructions on the same page

NEXT

Download and run Puran Disc Defragmenter



Tell me the result after this, and if all is good, I'll give you some final hints to keep clean and you're free to go home :unsure:

After doing the last instructions, your computer must be running better.

Happy to hear that you're clean finally :unsure:

Congratulations! Your logs are clean! :) Now that you are clean, please follow these precautions in order to keep safe:


Over the course of the fix you've used a variety of special tools to help with the cleaning process - none of these are of any use to you now that you're clean, and it's best not to have them hanging around on your computer.

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
  • Open OTL for the last time and hit the cleanup button. It will remove all the programs we have used plus itself.


Next:


Uninstall ComboFix from your computer:
  • Click on Start > Run
  • Type Combofix /Uninstall in the run box and click Ok. Note the space between the x and the /u, it needs to be there.

Next:


Note: If you are using Firefox I would suggest the use of these add-ons:
  • NoScript - for blocking ads and other potential website attacks.
  • McAfee SiteAdvisor - this tells you whether the sites you are about to visit are safe or not. A must if you do a lot of Googling.


Next:


Automatic Updates for Windows
  • Click Start.
  • Select Settings and then Control Panel.
  • Select Automatic Updates.
  • Click Automatic (recommended)
  • Choose a day and a time when you know the computer will be on and connected to the internet.
  • Click Apply then OK.



Next:


Additional security programs - For additional security, the use of these tools is important:
  • Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. - Update the free version and scan with it often. It is an excellent scanning tool to have on your side.
  • Javacool's SpywareBlaster: - It will protect you from most spy/foistware in it's database by blocking installation of their ActiveX objects.
    Download and install, download the latest updates, and you'll see a list of all spyware programs covered by the program (NOTE: this is NOT spyware found on your computer)

    Press "Enable All Protection", and you're done.
    The spyware that you told Spywareblaster to set the "kill bit" for won't be a hazard to you any longer.
    Although it won't protect you from every form of spyware known to man, it is a very potent extra layer of protection.
    Don't forget to check for updates every week or so.
  • The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer. This little program packs a powerful punch as it block ads, banners, 3rd party Cookies, 3rd party page counters, web bugs, and many hijackers. For information on how to download and install, please read this tutorial

Next:

Upgrading Java:
  • Go here and click Do I have Java
  • It will check your current version and then offer to update to the latest version, if there are any.


Next:


Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.


Next:


Keep a backup of your important files to prevent future data loss.


Happy safe computing !! :yes:

No, unfortunately NoScript isn't available in Chrome. There is a similar addon for Chrome called NoScripts but I'm not sure if it's good though, as I don't use it
