Well that was a trip and a half


Subject to no further problems :)

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean :thumbsup:

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

Click Start then Run.
On Windows7 or Vista you may use Start Search field if Run is not available.
In the box copy/paste the following command:

ComboFix /Uninstall

Note that there is a space between " ComboFix " and " /Uninstall " .

Then click OK (or press Enter ).
Wait for the uninstall process to complete.

Download and run Delfix

: Keep Java Updated :

WARNING: Java is the #1 exploited program at this time. The Department of Homeland Security recommends that computer users disable Java
See this article

I would recommend that you completely uninstall Java unless you need it to run an important software.
In that instance I would recommend that you disable Java in your browsers until you need it for that software and then enable it. (See How to diasble Java in your web browser and How to unplug Java from the browser)

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:

CryptoPrevent install this programme to lock down and prevent crypto ransome ware

Malwarebytes.

Update and run weekly to keep your system clean

A small tool that may help when you download programmes

http://unchecky.com/

Click on the link above to be taken to Unchecky.com
click the very large Download button.
click Save
Click Open folder


Right click on the Unchecky_setupuncheckysetupicon.png or folder and choose to Run as Administrator

Once open click the Install button.

uncheckysetupwindow.png

Then click on Finish

Unchecky is now installed and will help you keep unwanted check boxes unchecked ;)



It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this little guide Best security practices Keep safe :wave:

All instructions followed. I will closely monitor for 24 hours and report back on the status of my computer. I uninstalled Java completely so I will have to wait and see what impact it may have. Reading the Homeland Security Article was an eye opener for sure. 

 

What a ride this has been my friend. :upset:  Thank you for your patience and expertise but most of all for your valuable time.  :wave:

Well it's been 24 hours or so and as requested I am reporting back in. Thrilled to report that there are no noticeable issues with the computer. It's running very fast and I detect no presence of malware or other nasties(ran a scan before posting this)!! :yeah:

 

Thank you again Essexboy, you have done a fabulous job.

 

Signing off with a determination to keep it clean.
