Hello
Sorry for the late reply

Download this installer and run it. When it opens click repair and then let it run.
Tell me if that was successful


Next:

If it wasn't successful, then tell me if it you get any errors when you try to completely uninstall .Net Framework.

So i downloaded the file, but it didn't give me an option to repair, so it did a series of stuff and I think something installed. After that i realized that windows update was running in the background and downloading some stuff. After it got done, i had like 23 updates. so i did those, they installed and everything, went back to check for more updates and it found a 4mb one that had to do with .net framework, installed that, and now it seems like all updates are installed. Wish i could check to see if those specific two that kept failing actually got installed. Thanx alot though Michael.

As they're not listed anymore, then they're most probably installed. If you want you can see installed updates following this

Are there any more problems with the computer? How's it working?

I don't think there is anymore problems. So far the computer seems okay, I haven't been using it much, but it has been on most if not all nights since we started fighting the virus/malawares. I also restarted numerous times and check for updates, none.

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.


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:

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:

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.
  • 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:
