Let's get rid of the one file that ESET found. :)
  • 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:\EaseUS Partition Master 9.3.0\bin\tb_free.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.

Hello :)

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: Update AVG

Your current version of AVG is out of date. Please update it by right clicking on the icon in the task bar, and clicking Update Now.


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 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.

Then click Finish

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

Everything seems to be running well. Browsing speeds are fast and I haven't seen any unwanted redirects.

AVG is giving me a warning that Linkscanner is disabled, but that's nothing to worry about, right?

Personally, I'd enable Linkscanner as it will check each link you click before opening it in real time. :thumbsup:
