Very much so :) It's almost criminal the claims these software companies make. I've seen one anti-virus program that makes the claim "100% malware, adware, and virus free." And the software comes with adware that installs itself on the machine.

Let's get rid of the one file that was found. :thumbsup:
  • Open notepad (Start =>All Programs => Accessories => Notepad). Please copy the entire contents of the code box below. (To do this highlight the contents of the box, right click on it and select copy.
  • Right-click in the open notepad and select Paste).
  • Save it on the desktop as fixlist.txt

Start
C:\Users\Ian\Downloads\cbsidlm-cbsi188-BlueStacks_App_Player-ORG-75593133.exe
End


NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system.


Run FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait. The tool will make a log on the desktop (Fixlog.txt) please post it in your next reply.

No worries :) Real life always comes first, and we work on the schedule works best for you. :thumbsup:


Great news, your logs are CLEAN! :thumbsup: :) but we still have a few things we need to address namely:
  • I need to remove the tools we installed on your machine.
  • I also have some tips and information to help reduce the chances of infection.
Ok, here we go:


Step 1: Tool Removal with Delfix and Creation of a clean restore point
  • Download Delfix from here
  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is ticked
    Also tick:
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore
    delfix.jpg
  • 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.

You can uninstall ESET Online Scanner at this time.

I recommend keeping Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed. Make sure to update it and run it at least once a week. If it finds things such as PUP's (Potentially Unwanted Programs) you can delete those with no worries. However, if it finds something like a trojan, come see us.


Step 2: Tips, Information, and Optional Installation of Unchecky
  • Watch what you open in your emails. If you get an email from an unknown source with any attached files, do not open it.
  • Be careful of the websites you visit.
  • When installing new programs, don't be "click happy" and click through the screens. Many programs come with adware in them and are set to install them by default. Several programs require that you uncheck or select no to prevent the installation. Take your time and read each screen as you go. :)
  • To help protect yourself while on the web, I recommend you read How did I get infected in the first place?

    Installation of Unchecky

    This is a very good little program that will automatically uncheck any boxes during a software installation. This helps prevent the software from installing any malware that is by default checked while the program is being installed.

    Click here to be taken to Unchecky.com

    Click the very large Download button.

    Click Save

    Once downloaded, double click the program (Vista, Win 7, and 8, right click and Run as Administrator)

    Once open, click the Install button.


    unchecky1_zps667e512d.jpg


    Then click Finish

    unchecky2_zpsca4e7d0d.jpg


    Unchecky is now installed and will help you keep unwanted check boxes unchecked. :thumbsup:

    Are there any further issues I can assist you with?
