Windows 7, Dell inspiron---Downloaded Windows Defender Offline as recommended after a scan of Microsoft Security Essentials, now can only operate in recovery mode and cannot access safe mode.  Defender found one aleuron and removed it.  After hours upon hours of trying to resolve the issue, I dowloaded FarBar to my flash drive, ran the inital scan, which created a log which I will post below.  I followed previous post instructions--copied to new notepad, saved as FixList.txt, but now cannot run the Fix option.  I've made several attempts and no success.  Please advise and thank you.

Congratulations.

Lets remove the tools we used during this session.

Run AdwCleaner and click on uninstall.
  • Download Delfix from here
  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is ticked
    Also tick:
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore
    delfix.jpg
  • Click Run
Manually remove any file and folder left.

Here are some suggestions.
  • Always keep your JAVA updated. Older versions will make your computer vulnerable.
  • Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed. The standard registry backup options that come with Windows back up most of the registry but not all of it. ERUNT however creates a complete backup set, including the Security hive and user related sections. ERUNT is easy to use and since it creates a full backup, there are no options or choices other than to select the location of the backup files. The backup set includes a small executable that will launch the registry restore if needed.
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Miekiemoes.

Could the Malwarebytes have removed the Adware application?  I can't find it anywhere....done search, etc, everything.  The scan report still exists on my desktop.

You mean the ADWCleaner aplication. If so, perhaps Delfix, may have deleted it. Delete the Report. You can always download the application and then uninstall.

Thanks again so much.  Is there a antivirus/antimalware app to keep installed that you recommend over others?
