Step 1.

Update Flash Player

Uninstall your current version of flash player by downloading the uninstaller here and running it. Once it is complete reboot .

You will need to download and install both the IE and non-IE versions of Adobe Flashplayer. Make sure to uncheck the install of the McAfee tool before downloading. You will need to select your operating system (Windows XP 32-bit) and then each version to download and install separately.

Step 2.

Subject to no further problems :)

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

Your log now appears clean :thumbsup:

The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

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


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

Remove ComboFix
  • Hold down the Windows key + R on your keyboard. This will display the Run dialogue box
  • In the Run box, type in ComboFix /Uninstall
    (Notice the space between the "x" and "/")
    then click OK

    Posted Image
  • Follow the prompts on the screen
  • A message should appear confirming that ComboFix was uninstalled

Run OTL and hit the cleanup button. It will remove all the programs we have used plus itself.

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

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 programs 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

Hello again, thank you Compcav for all of your help.

Adobe updated, OTL was ran, and everything was uninstalled as well.

I will continue to monitor the computer's health, but so far so good. :)

Thank you again very much for helping me it has been much appreciated. :D
