Jim everything that ESET found is already quarantined, so no need to worry about any of that above.


Since your log reports are clean and free of malware, lets clean up after ourselves.

OTL Clean-Up

Right click on the OTLicon.jpg icon on your desktop and choose Run as administrator to open the main window.

Next click on the CleanUpButtonOTL.jpg button.

Once clean up is complete you will be prompted to reboot your computer. Please do so.

This will remove most of the programs we have used including itself.


Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool again.
  • Click on the Uninstall button.
  • Click Yes when asked are you sure you want to uninstall.
  • Both AdwCleaner.exe, its folder and all logs will be removed.
Right click on the JRT Icon and select delete.
If there are any left over tools or logs on your computer please delete them now.


Clear Restore Points

Go Start > All Programmes > Accessories > System tools
Right click Disc Cleanup and select run as administrator
When it pops up at the first prompt select OK after it has done some calculations the tabs will appear
Select More Options tab
Press Sytem Restore and Shadow Copies Cleanup button

You usually get infected because your security settings are too low.

Here are a number of recommendations that will help tighten them, and which will contribute to making you a less likely victim:
