ok, It started to uninstall but shortly after ask if I want to let it update.. Im lost


When uninstalling it, Java will sometimes ask if you want to update to the latest version. If you want to keep Java on the machine, you can let it update, but make sure you always keep the latest version on the machine.

You can follow the link below to verify whether or not you have the latest version on the machine.

When finished, please let me know. :thumbsup:

She seems to be running much better. No more error messages on startup either. =)

Good to hear :) :thumbsup:

Subject to no more issues, I'll go ahead and remove my tools and we'll create a new, clean restore point on your machine.


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
    • Reset System Settings
    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.
  • 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:


Step 3: Protection Against CryptoLocker


CryptoLocker is a ransomware program that was released around the beginning of September 2013 that targets all versions of Windows including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. This ransomware will encrypt certain files using a mixture of RSA & AES encryption. When it has finished encrypting your files, it will display a CryptoLocker payment program that prompts you to send a ransom of either $100 or $300 in order to decrypt the files. This screen will also display a timer stating that you have 72 hours, or 4 days, to pay the ransom or it will delete your encryption key and you will not have any way to decrypt your files. This ransom must be paid using MoneyPak vouchers or Bitcoins. Once you send the payment and it is verified, the program will decrypt the files that it encrypted.

Please download and install CryptoPrevent to lock your machine down from this infection.
