My name is Nutloaf, and I will be helping you with Malware Removal.
I am currently in training and my posts will need to be reviewed by an expert, so expect a slight delay between posts.
Please read all instructions and fixes thoroughly.
- I would advise printing any instructions for easy reference as some of the fixes may require you to boot in Safe mode and access to the GeeksToGo website will be unavailable.
- Any fixes provided by myself are for this log file only and cannot be used on any other systems.
- Do not run any other removal software or perform updates other than the ones I provide, as it will complicate the cleaning process.
- You have 4 days to reply to each post or the topic will be closed. You will be able to request that the topic be re-opened if you still require assitance.
- Please feel free to ask any questions, especially if you are having problems with my instructions.
Finally before we start:
Removing malware is a complicated multiple step process, Please stay with me until I have declared your system clean. I strongly recommend you backup your personal files and folders.
