don't know, it was at it for hours, then I came back and the computer was off so I figured it had finished.

ESET doesn't shut down the Computer ... Please do the scan again.

OK, forget the scan for now. I will search for another solution. I will come back with further instructions later.

OK, the instructions were running two scanners: Makwarebytes and ESET. Do you mean you haven't the log of ESET? What's with MBAM?

Btw as a sidenote: the adware came like those annoying add-ons connected to the dl of this: 

 

PUP.Optional.Installrex, C:\Users\Jens\Downloads\[Go Igo Baduk Weiqi] [mafutrct] [2010.08.12] Book Collection (1).exe, Quarantined, [6f9154aca45c8779733e1b4a5ca502fe]

 

But I don't think that it was actually in that file though.

Not sure, it's very subjective and I do different things all the time, so... Also tbh I never really push my computer to its limits nowadays anyway. It's doing good. I think it's better than before, but I couldn't say for sure. It's definately doing better than after I got the adware anyway haha.

 

Btw in your first post you talked about increasing space, and I will take your advice on that. It will just take a little bit longer than quick fixes. I have like 150 Gb assigned to a paralell installed linux that I never use, so... :)

Hello,
in my opinion your PC is clean.

We need to remove the tools we've used during cleaning your machine
  • Download Delfix from here and run it (If you have Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 please do a Right click on the Delfix icon and select Run as Administrator).
  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is ticked
    Also tick:
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore
    delfix.jpg
  • Click Run
The program will run for a few moments and then notepad will open with a log. Please paste the log in your next reply

 

Upgrading Java :
Please download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder
  • Run JavaRa.exe, then click on Remove Java Runtime.
  • Select the Java version you have from the drop down list, and then click on Run Uninstaller
  • Press Yes if it asks to uninstall the product.
  • Allow the uninstaller to remove the installed version.
  • When its finished, go back to JavaRa, and click Back
  • Click on Update Java Runtime and then select Download and install latest version.
  • Press Next
  • Press Java Manual Download.
  • A browser window will open with the Java download page.
  • Click the Windows offline link to download Java.
  • Run the installer.
  • Close JavaRa
Please also update FireFox.

 

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 written by tech expert Artellos.

Keep Safe! :thumbsup:

OK, if MBAM removed it, it should be removed. For the future there shouldn't be further warnings about Malware. Any questions? Or am I free to close that topic?

New restore point created !
 
########## - EOF - ##########
 
Yep, it was the wrong file. I ran it now without trouble.
 
Seemed like I had 3 different versions of java? :s Either way, removed all, and installed the new java.
 
I'd rather just uninstall firefox since I don't use i, either way;
 
I now have two anti virus software.Malwarebytes Anti-malware (trial), and avast! free antivirus. I should keep it at one, right?

Hey :)

There should be no problem running MBAM and AVAST at the same time, but if you like you can uninstall MBAM.

Keep Safe, okiol. :)
