Excellent! Only one file found, and it's already quarantined by AdwCleaner. :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.
  • We also have some programs on your machine that need updating to help protect you in the future.
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: Program Updates and Installation of FileHippo


Your current version of Java is out of date. However, before updating it, please read the information below.


A word about Java

Java has become the #1 program exploited by thieves and hackers as of today. It's gotten so bad, the Department of Homeland Security recently recommended that users disable Java on their machines.

For more information regarding this, see the two articles below:

Forbes: US Department of Homeland Security Calls on user do disable Java

US warns on Java software

Unless you have software on your machine that absolutely requires Java, I highly recommend you completely remove it from your system.

If you do have software that requires it, then disable it until such time as it's needed by those programs.

Please click the link below for instructions to disable Java.

How to Disable Java in your Web Browser


If you wish to continue to use Java on your machine, please be sure to keep it updated by following the instructions below.
  • Click on this link Java Website and click Do I Have Java?
  • Then click the Verify Java Version button. It will scan your current version and show you if you have the most current version.
You can also download a tool called JavaRa that will automatically search for new updates and remove older versions of Java.
Click the link below to go to the download page to get the tool.

JavaRa

Once you have downloaded JavaRa
  • Unzip the files to the directory of your choice.
  • Double click the JavaRa icon in the directory and choose your language preference.
  • Click Remove Older Versions from the menu.
  • Click Yes.
  • If you get a warning that Internet Explorer needs to be closed, close it, then click ok.
  • JavaRa will then search for and remove old versions of Java from your machine.
You can find instructions for manually removing older versions for Windows XP, Vista, and 7 by clicking the link below:

Instructions for manually removing old versions of Java


Keeping your software updated

Another weapon against malicious programs and viruses is to keeping other programs updated. There are several programs out there that can check for out of date programs on your computer. One is Filehippo. You can run this on a weekly or monthly basis to check your programs for updates and then it will provide a link for you to download them.

Download Filehippo Updatechecker


Step 3: 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.

Install and keep only one anti-virus on your machine. Update it and scan your machine with it at least once a week.

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 you 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.

Then click Finish

unchecky2_zpsca4e7d0d.jpg


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

quick question... I installed AdwCleaner to remove a PUP. If this program has quarantined files (which I can't figure out how to remove using the same tool)-- if I uninstall it-- what will happen to those quarantined files?  Will they come out of quarantine?

 

I'm going to leave that program installed until I hear from you.

Hello :)

Delfix will remove/uninstall AdwCleaner when it runs. During that process, all of the files in the Quarantine folder will be deleted. :thumbsup:
