No problems, you need both and they are the latest version of Java for 32 bit and 64 bit browsers. Since you have Windows 7 64 bit you have Internet explorer 9 in both versions and Firefox is a 32 bit only version. Good job :thumbsup:


Are there any remaining issues with the computer?

I would not do either, instead I would use one of the following:

Antivirus Software:

Antvirus software is a necessity. This is your primary line of defense against the type of malware that has infected your computer. Each of the following products have real-time protection and scheduled scans. Please choose one, install it, update the antivirus database/definitions, and run a complete scan.

These are among the best free antivirus/antispyware products.
*Please note* You should never install more than one anti-virus program on a PC because it will cause conflicts.


I have personal machines with Avast and with Microsoft's AntiVirus and I am very happy with them.


  • Please download one of them to your desktop.
  • Go here for directions to uninstall the TrendMicro Titanium
  • Reboot and install the free AV you downloaded



Once you have completed this, please come back and I will give you directions to cleanup your desktop and finalize this process :thumbsup:


Regards,

CompCav

Sorry you are not feeling well, get well soon!

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:

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

    :Commands
    [resethosts]
    [emptytemp]
    [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 programs we have used plus itself.



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.



SPRING CLEAN

To manually create a new Restore Point
  • Go to Control Panel and select System
  • Select System
  • On the left select System Protection and accept the warning if you get one
  • Select System Protection Tab
  • Select Create at the bottom
  • Type in a name i.e. Clean
  • Select Create

Now we can purge the infected ones
  • GoStart > All programs > Accessories > system tools
  • Right click Disc cleanup and select run as administrator
  • Select Your main drive and accept the warning if you get one
  • For a few moments the system will make some calculations
  • Select the More Options tab
  • In the System Restore and Shadow Backups select Clean up
  • Select Delete on the pop up
  • Select OK
  • Select Delete

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

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 :wave:

OK any of the tools or text files that we used that are still on your desktop can be deleted by right clicking on them and then selecting delete.

Also I see that wild tangent games is in my programs and I am not sure why as of the 9-26

Were they gone, your logs show they are installed and were hidden earlier.
What do you want to do with them?
