That's a nag screen we call it, it's wants you to try the paid for version. I would not accept it.

How is the computer ? Any better ? If not would you consider trying a different Anti Virus program ?

Thanks Joe,

 

It is working a lot better.  I would appreciate it if you can let me know your recommendations on using AVG or something else, and should I keep Malwarebytes or keep and upgrade to full version.

 

Thanks

If it's working better then we can leave AVG, avg can cause slow downs on some computers that's what I was thinking about. As far as Malwarebytes is concerned it would not hurt to up grade to the full version, I'd consider it. We have another fix to do involving left over files.

A few items to fix

Hello,

Two scans to run ESET could take considerable time.

ESET Online Scanner

Note: You can use either Internet Explorer or Mozilla FireFox for this scan. You will however need to disable your current installed Anti-Virus, how to do so can be read here.
  • Please go >>HERE<< then click on: ESET1st.jpg

    Note: If using Mozilla Firefox you will need to download esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe when prompted then double click on the ESETexe.jpg icon to install.

    All of the below instructions are compatible with either Internet Explorer or Mozilla FireFox.
  • Select the option YES, I accept the Terms of Use then click on: ESETsave.jpg
  • When prompted allow the Add-On/Active X to install.
  • Make sure that the option Remove found threats is NOT checked, and the option Scan archives is checked.
  • Now click on Advanced Settings and select the following:
    • Scan for potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth Technology
  • Now click on: EOLS3.gif
  • The virus signature database... will begin to download. Be patient this make take some time depending on the speed of your Internet Connection.
  • When completed the Online Scan will begin automatically.
  • Do not touch either the Mouse or keyboard during the scan otherwise it may stall.
  • When completed make sure you first copy the logfile located at C:\Program Files\ESET\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
  • Copy and paste that log as a reply to this topic.
  • Now click on: EOLS4.gif
    (Selecting Uninstall application on close if you so wish)
Next

Download Security Check by screen317 from Here or Here
Save it to your Desktop.
Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

NOTE: If SecurityCheck aborts and you get the following message: UNSUPPORTED OPERATING SYSTEM! ABORTED! try rebooting the system and then run SecurityCheck again.

In your next reply post;
1. Eset scan results.
2. Checkup.txt.

Thanks
Joe :)

Hello,

1st
Out of date Adobe Reader installed!
Your Adobe reader needs updating. You should ensure you use the latest Adobe Acrobat Reader and install any security updates that are released. You can download the latest reader and updates from here.
Note Important: Please uncheck any optional offers before downloading.

2nd
Out of date Adobe flash player installed! You should ensure you use the latest Adobe flash player and install any security updates that are released. You can download the latest Flashplayer and updates from Here. Please uncheck any optional offers before downloading.

3rd
Your Java is out of date:
Note
Due to multiple security problems with Java we are now recommending that it not be installed unless you absolutely know you need it.
I would uninstall it from the programs an Features menu Start > Control Panel > Programs & Features, uninstall all Java.

Up Date your Chrome browser.

Let me know when all that is done and how things are.

Thanks
Joe :)

Hello,

I'd keep Malwarebytes on the computer,

Open Malwarebytes, and on the Dashboard, click on ‘End Free Trial’ link which, then will be instantly converted to the free version, so you wont get the nag screen about trial has expired. Always run a Malwarebytes scan when you suspect things just don't seem right on the computer, Malwarebytes can remove an incredible amount of junk files.

Everything else looks ok, so lets remove the tools I had you download..



Download DelFix by Xplode and save it to your desktop.
  • Run the tool by right click on the 51a5ce45263de-delfix.png icon and Run as administrator option.
  • Make sure that these ones are checked:
    • Remove disinfection tools
    • Purge system restore
    • Reset system settings
  • Push Run.
  • The program will run for a few seconds and display a notepad report.
    Paste it for my review.
