Eset log is below.
Quick Question Sleepy Dude - Are either of the spyware / adware programs we downloaded supposed to be actively running?
It appears I just have micro-soft security ATM, which is probably a reason I got so infected. Can you recommend what else I should use?
thanks again!

Hi,

Eset log is below.

Thanks for the log.

Quick Question Sleepy Dude - Are either of the spyware / adware programs we downloaded supposed to be actively running?

No, if you follow my instructions the programs aren't actively running. Only MBAM have that feature on the paid version.

It appears I just have micro-soft security ATM, which is probably a reason I got so infected. Can you recommend what else I should use?

Exactly and you should have only one Antivirus program running at all time. Based on the type of malware removed from your computer you got infected by installing free software bundled with Bad extras. Later I will post some recommendations in terms of security.

Please post also the Security Check log.

Hello Kolchak,

Your logs are looking good but you have several programs outdated that need to be updated, let's do some system maintenance...


Step 1 - Check Antivirus Configuration

The Security Check log shows that there may be some problem with Microsoft Security Essentials lets check:
- open the program by double clicking its icon Posted Imagenext to the clock
- I want you to check if Microsoft Security Essentials is actively protecting you System. Click on the Settings tab and then on the left panel click Real-time Protection make sure you have all the check boxes checked like in the following image:
Posted Image

Note: after doing changes on the page you need to click Save Changes and accept all the Security warnings presented by the system.

Let me know the result of this...


Step 2 - Update Programs

From the Security Check log there are some critical programs that you need to update:

» Update Adobe Flash Player
The version you have is outdated! and need to be updated. Open the Adobe page install Flash Player and make sure you uncheck the box to install any extra programs (Google Chrome and Google Toolbar or McAfee Security Scan Plus) before downloading. The installation need to be done for both Internet Explorer and Firefox, repeat the above steps for each browser.

» Update Adobe Reader
The Adobe Reader you have is outdated! and vulnerable to security exploits. The version presently installed it's old, you need to Uninstall Adobe Reader 10.1.2, click Start > Control Panel > then Add or Remove Programs, locate the program on the list and uninstall like you did before. Next download and install the most recent version by visiting the Adobe Reader page, make sure you uncheck the box offering any extra programs like the McAfee Security Scan Plus.

» Update Firefox
Mozilla Firefox is also very outdated! the browser is the most exposed software when you access the Internet it's very important to keep it updated all the times for security reasons and also because some web sites will only work correctly with the most recent versions. You can update by starting Firefox then click Help > About > click the button Check for Updates if there is a newer version the download will start, wait and then click Apply Update and restart Firefox.
Alternatively you could visit the Mozilla Firefox web page here and click on the green button that says Firefox Free Download to download and upgrade to the most recent version.


Step 3 - Remove Temporary Files and Reset System Restore

  • Execute OTL by double clicking the icon Posted Image. Make sure all other windows are closed.
    Do not change any other settings unless otherwise told to do so.
  • Under the Posted Image box at the bottom, paste in the following:
    :OTL
    
    :Commands
    [ClearAllRestorePoints]
    [EmptyTemp]
    [Reboot]
    
  • click the Posted Image button at the top. Let the program run uninterrupted.
  • click OK
Notes:
  • When OTL executes the Fix it can shutdown all running processes and you may lose the Desktop and icons, but they will return on reboot
  • OTL may ask to reboot the machine. Please accept right away.
  • The report should appear in Notepad after the reboot. Copy & Paste that report in your next reply and not as attachment.
  • The OTL fix log will be saved in the following location: C:\_OTL\MovedFiles\mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log - where mmddyyy _hhmmss is the date and time when the fix run.

Step 4 - Defrag the Hard Disk

The Security Check also shows that you need to Defrag your C: drive if you don't have an SSD disk!.

  • download MyDefrag
  • Install the program MyDefrag-v4.3.1.exe, accept the license agreement and click Next until the screen below
  • on step Select Additional Tasks untick all the check box's except Associate .MyD file with the MyDefrag script interpreter

  • after install close all the other programs and execute MyDefrag. Select the options according to the following screen:

Hi Sleepy Dude
My microsoft security appears to be on & up to date but the options on my settings tab were different than pictured. There is only one box (turn on real time protection) and it was checked. The options on the left side are slightly different, as last option isn't Micro-soft SpyNet but MAPS. Everything appears up to date however as virus & spyware definitions are updated automatically.

I'll post back about everything else asap.

thanks again

Sleepy Dude -

when clicking on the adobe link I get the following -


"Your Google Chrome browser already includes Adobe® Flash® Player built-in. Google Chrome will automatically update when new versions of Flash Player are available.

To download the Adobe® Flash® Player system plug-in, click here. For instructions on how to enable it, click here.

Do you have a different operating system or browser?

To learn more about the enhanced support for Flash Player in Chrome, including information for developers, see this TechNote."


Is this update still necessary?
If I only use chrome, do I still need to update IE & firefox or can these browsers be removed?


I've had an adobe reader update request in my tool bar (by the clock) requesting update version 10.1.2. I haven't done update however because I wasn't sure if it was legit. can I use this prompt to update reader?

I will wait on your instructions before doing any of the abode updates.
