Update I somehow managed to do what you asked, it took some fiddling around and I had no remove it first from view devices and printers screen then install again then remove from device manager because then it showed up and finished your instructions. It has installed corretly however I cannot print to it as the printer is not in the option to use and under show device and printers page it shows this:

Even when I troubleshoot, it finds nothing amiss.

Hey Destiny,

Sorry, but I must say something to you which is related to your Computer. The Speedfan results are not good! The results say your computer will be the next time a grilled chicken. The temps are much too high (and I mean MUCH too high). The best thing is going to a shop where they can check the CPU heatsink etc. - please do that immediately!

Back to the printer problem:

Remove the Photosmart printer and make the Office Jet to default.

How to make this:

  • Open Control Panel
  • Go to Hardware and Sound, then to Devices and printers
  • Right click on the Photosmart Printer >> select "Remove device"
  • Right click on the Office Yet printer >> select make printer to default

I need that printer, it is also used but it is used when this laptop is moved to another location. I don't have a problem with using that printer at all. And until a while ago my 4100 worked just fine as well.

Thanks. I guess I will have to take my computer in then, last time it was doing a similar thing off and on and they said it was normal which ticked me off. Wish I could fix it somehow on here.

I'm really sorry :upset: - for the printer problem please do the steps above - we could add the Photosmart printer then again. The removing is only for testing - we will add it later again.

Thanks. I did as you asked, and this is all that happens:

printer 2.png

As you can see there is no option to make default printer.

I also had to use device manager after removing the d110 from this section to remove it from there as well.

I managed to figure out what was going on, I believe it was my printers USB cable. I uninstalled then reinstalled again using a different usb printer cable and now it is working. lol.

Thanks!

So is my computer basically free from infections now?

And do I have to worry about registry errors now?

And another question, is my computer always going to be able to pick up if a program/file is infected when I scan it? Is there a better program you would recommend out there?

Yes, so far I didn't overlooked anything.

And do I have to worry about registry errors now?

Which Registry errors? I don't see any "Registry" - Errors in the log.

And another question, is my computer always going to be able to pick up if a program/file is infected when I scan it? Is there a better program you would recommend out there?

Nope, no Malwarescanner can detect every Malware. I recommend using Virustotal.com for scanning a .exe etc. file.

As I said before please go to a computer shop to check after the CPU. This is the main issue which we have. At this moment I can only say your computer is clean so far there aren't any other issues. I would be really happy if you could give my a Feedback here - but you don't have to do thus - but it would be really nice to see what I can do better in the next time. :) You were my first really User and I'm glad that I helped you. I really gave my best.

- FIRST -

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

    :Commands
    [EMPTYTEMP]
    [CLEARALLRESTOREPOINTS]

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

- NEXT -

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

I want you to uninstall following programs (Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs):

  • ESET

What's with MBAM?

Malwarebytes is a very good free scanner! It isn't a one demand scanner so it won't have any problems with your AntiVirus! It would be good if you scan your PC after Malware every 1-2 months (of course with Malwarebytes).
But if you like to uninstall it, then make that:

I want you to uninstall following programs (Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs):

  • Malwarebytes

- NEXT -

Download File-Hippo Updatechecker http://www.filehippo.../updatechecker/ Please run it monthly - it will scan your Updatestatus. For example a program is out dated the UpdateChecker will give you a link where you can download the newest version of the respective program.

How to update programs with FileHippo Updatechecker?

  • Start FileHippo Updatechecker
  • You get redirected to a Website
  • You probably see a list of updates (if not then are probably all programs up to date)
  • Click on the first item of the list, download the Update , after that reboot the Computer and take the next item of the list!

Exercise common sense

Having security programs installed is very helpful to you, but none of them have the gift of human thought. The best way to make sure you don't get infected is to look before you leap. Be careful of what websites you visit - if a site looks suspicious, trust your instincts and get out of there. Be careful of what attachments you open in emails and files you download from websites - check them over carefully and look at the file extensions to make sure that you know what you're getting. Using peer-to-peer file sharing programs or downloading cracks and keygens is something else to avoid - the files you will be downloading are infected in the vast majority of cases, and the benefits simply aren't worth the risk to your computer.

Keep up on Windows updates

Along with keeping all of the security programs that you choose to use updated, it is also important to keep up on system updates from Microsoft, as these patch critical security vulnerabilities and help to keep you safe. Typically the windows update icon will appear in your taskbar when new updates are available, whenever you see it you should open the menu up and install the updates that are available. Although it may be an annoyance, that little bit of extra time it takes to stay updated is very well worth it instead of getting infected from an exploit and having to clean your PC again.

Slow computer?

If your computer begins to slow down again in the future for no particular reason, your first step should not be to come back to the malware forum. As your computer ages and is used, its parts wear, files and programs accumulate, and its performance speed can decrease. To restore your computer's performance to its best possible level, follow the steps in this guide (http://www.geekstogo...g-your-machine/) written by tech expert Artellos.

Keep safe! :thumbsup:
