After running Combofix in safe mode, my default browser had been changed to IE and a desktop shortcut to IE appeared. I'm not sure whether that's normal so I thought I should mention it. :)

Hi shmalligator,

OK. I think we got it! Please test your FF for redirection and come back to with report.

If you want to change default browser to FF then visit This link

You can delete IE shortcut if you don't want it.

Hi shmalligator,

Good job! Your logs and system are clean now. I'm glad we fix up your computer. We need to clean up your PC from programs we used.

Step 1

Please start OTL one more time and click CleanUp button. OTL will restart your system at the end. Remove all other application we used to clean your PC.

General recommendations

Here are some recommendations you should follow to minimize infection risk in the future:

1. Enable Windows Update
  • Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then press ENTER.
  • Click the Automatic Updates tab, and then click to select one of the following options. We recommend that you select the Automatic (recommended) Automatically download recommended updates for my computer and install them option.
  • Click OK button

2. Delete Temp files

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

3. Make Backups of Important Files

Please read this article Home Computer Data Backup.


4. Regularly update your software

To eliminate design flaws and security vulnerabilities, all software needs to be updated to the latest version or the vendor’s patch installed.

You should download Update Checker from here. The program will automaticly check for newer version of software installed on your system.

Excellent. I did everything and my system is running perfectly. :unsure: Again, thanks so much for your time and patience! You're doing a great service to those of us who lack both the knowledge to fix it and money to have it fixed! :)
