The only other important thing to do to complete your cleaning / security of your system is JAVA needs removal or updating.
Most security experts and the US CERT (part of the US Homeland Security) now recommend that users uninstall Java from their systems; if you don't have any programs that need Java on your system, you are safe to do this. You can read some of the articles on this here and here. I strongly suggest you uninstall Java unless you need it run certain software; in that case I would recommend that you disable or unplug Java from your web browsers and only enable it when you need it.
To disable / unplug Java in your browsers:
To uninstall Java (on Win7):
- Click Start and then click Control Panel.
- If you need to, click View by: and select either Large Icons or Small Icons.
- Click on Programs and Features.
- Scroll down until you find Java and click on it to select that program.
- (Older versions of Java may appear in the program list as J2SE, Java 2, Java SE or Java Runtime Environment.)
- Click Uninstall.
- If more than one version of Java shows in your program list, you should repeat the selection and uninstall until all of them are removed.
To check for the latest version of Java and installation steps:
- Go to java.com and click on Do I have Java?.
- On the next page, click on Verify Java Version.
- If you get a security pop up entitled "Do you want to run this application?" with the Name: Java Detection and Publisher: Oracle America, Inc., click Run.
- Follow the recommendations (if any) on the results screen.
- If there is a new version (or none at all on your system), there will be a button on the page showing Agree and Start Free Download. Click on it to update or install Java.
- The site will start a download of jxpiinstall.exe. Save the file to your desktop.
- When the download is finished, close your browser.
- Right click on the jxpiinstall.exe and select Run as Administrator.
- On the opening window, check Change destination folder and then click Install>.
- The program will now download the rest of the files needed to install Java.
- On the Destination Folder window, click Next>.
- On the next window, the install will present you the option of adding additional software (this is known as Foistware).
- Uncheck the Set and keep Ask as my default search provider.
- Uncheck the Install the Ask Toolbar.
- Click Next> to finish the install.
- When the installation is finished, you will be taken to a web page that will check to see if Java is working properly.
Once JAVA has been taken care of please run the following:
Please run a fresh scan with Security Check (the program should be on your desktop). Please post the log file from the scan in your next post.
We need to remove the tools we've used during cleaning your machine
- Download Delfix from here
- Ensure Remove disinfection tools is ticked
- Activate UAC
- Create registry backup
- Purge system restore
- 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.
Once you have the log file saved, please reboot your system to complete the clean up process.
Please delete the MGADiag.exe file on your desktop (right click on it and select delete). After that, empty your trash bin / Recycle Bin on your desktop.
