Hi there, it's looking good from this end now as well. You are all clean apart from a few files in your downloads folder that still need removing. Once that is done, you are good to go.

Please navigate to C:\Users\Vanessa\Downloads

And delete the following files:
  • cbsidlm-cbsi4_1_1-Simple_Sticky_Notes-10864689.exe
  • mp3rocket(1).exe
  • mp3rocket(2).exe
  • mp3rocket.exe

Then:

Good news, it looks like your system is now clean. A good workman cleans up after himself so let's now attend to that :D

Tool Removal

We need to remove the tools we've used during cleaning your machine
  • Download Delfix from here
  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is ticked
    Also tick:
    • Activate UAC
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore
    delfix-select.png
  • 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



Keep your machine updated

Due to the ever-present tide of malware, it is important to ensure your computer is kept up-to-date to minimize the risk of future infection. An important step is to ensure that automatic updates are enabled.


To enable automatic updates:

Windows 7
To turn on Automatic Updates yourself, follow these steps:
  • Click Start, type Windows update in the search box, and then click Windows Update in the Programs list.
  • In the left pane, click Change settings.
  • Select the option that you want.
  • Under Recommended updates, select the Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates or Include recommended updates when downloading, installing, or notifying me about updates check box, and then click OK.
It is recommended to install an anti-malware to help prevent reinfection.
Below are some free ones that can help keep you clean.

Malwarebytes AntiMalware

As you have installed Malwarebytes, I recommend that you keep this program and use it to help you stay clean.

The free version will scan your computer and fix the problems it finds but will not provide real-time protection. You must scan regularly to find any threats.
Consider purchasing the full version for active monitoring of threats.



Update Other Programs

Alongside keeping Windows updated, other programs installed on your computer should also be kept current as they too can introduce security risks.

Filehippo Update Checker will scan your computer for out of date programs and provide download links for the updates. This is worth doing on a regular basis.

Recommended Programs

Unchecky is a small service that runs in the background to help keep those "extra toolbars" and tag along search engines from automatically installing. By automatically directing you to a custom install with all the options unchecked, only what you manually choose and confirm gets installed. CryptoPrevent is a free program that prevents CryptoLocker / ransomware from infecting your PC by locking down the OS so the malware can not get a grip on your system.Web Of Trust is a browser add-on designed to alert the user before interacting with a potentially malicious website. It will highlight green if a site is known to be safe.
Adblock is a firefox browser add-on that blocks annoying banners, pop-ups and video ads.

General Advice
  • When browsing the internet, look closely at the links you click on. Some aren't always what they seem
  • Avoid Peer to Peer file sharing utilities, these are a minefield of malware infections.
  • Don't open email attachments unless you are expecting them. Even an email from your best friend can be infected, they might not have sent it.
  • Pay attention when installing a program to your computer, particularly to any check boxes that may appear during installation, it is common for unwanted software to be installed in this way.

New restore point created !

########## - EOF - ##########
 

 

 

What does it mean that the new restore point was created?  So it created it to that point that i ran that DelFix?

 

Also, I know it's way too late for this, but my boyfriend was asking me how do I know that geekstogo is not just a scam site and actually all those scanners weren't storing all my personal information?  It's a valid question so I'll ask it anyway even though we're already done :)

 

And I understand that you are a volunteer? no one pays you to do this!?  how do you have the time!?  Do you get any kind of benefit from doing this?

 

Thank you A MILLION for your help.  Much obliged!

Also, what happens with all of those files that the ESET scanner just found but I had unchecked the "remove files" box?

They are still on my computer? or am I missing something?

Hi there.

 

Ok I will go in reverse order and answer your questions.

 

ESET found quite a few files that were in quarantine from the other tools we have used. Apart from the few that I asked you to delete manually as it was only a few, was much quicker just to delete them than run through ESET again. The ones already in quarantine are removed when delfix removed the other tools.

 

Some virus' and malware are backed up in restore points, so Delfix purges them and creates a new restore point at a good clean stage as you are now. Here at GeekstoGo, all those tasks were performed manually or by using each tool in turn to clean up after ourselves  so Delfix saves lots of time for both yourself and us.

 

This site has been around for many many years now and along with a select few other sites is renowned for its professionalism and dedication. Some of the volunteer staff here are regular staff at some major reputable anti malware companies( and the other reputable sites)  and the tools that we use to help clean your system are often tested by us because of the unique position we are in in working with many infected machines. It is in no way a scam but I do understand the valid question.

 

There is no personal information submitted by yourself, we do not know who you are, where you are or the contents of your computer other than some file names in the logs. We never actually see the contents of any of your files. All we ever see is the text files that you paste in for us which if you have a look through, only contain certain specific types of information relevant to the fixes we will be providing.

 

No payment is requested so we do not have any bank or financial information whatsoever.

 

We all have different reasons why we do this, what we get out of it and how much time we have.

For myself, I do it for several reasons:

 

Knowledge - I have been training here for a year now and have learnt a massive amount, which grows daily with each new person I help and new infection I come across. The teachers here are amazing and put so much work in you wouldn't believe. Don't forget they have been training us, then when we reach the final stage such as now, checking each and every answer we provide. To do this they also have to go through every log such as you provided, but for many students and their numerous posters.

 

Challenge - I am a technically oriented person, and I enjoy applying what I have learnt along with my real world experiences. Some people do crossword puzzles or sudoku, I do this :D

 

Satisfaction - I genuinely enjoy helping people. I have learnt many things in many different areas from the help that people across the world have provided me with on internet forums, from DIY problems to car issues. It is nice to give something back.

 

Time is always an issue, but personally, I work in computer repair and although I am very busy, there is also a lot of waiting. When I repair a computer in front of me(well 3 or 4 at a time really), like you have to wait for ESET etc, I also have to wait for scans and diagnosis to complete or files to copy so I do this inbetween events such as those. Then when I get spare slots of time between other tasks in the evening.

 

Hope this answers your questions. :D
