Those were the logs you sent before using the Removal Tool. I really wanred a new log to see if Eset was completely uninstalled.

 

Since Gary R helped you to clean your computer at another forum, the problem was mainly that there were 2 firewalls and antivuruses running. When you re-install Eset Smart Security, you need to disable Windows Defender and Windows firewall.

 

The good part is both browsers seem....seem to run well.?

 

Good.

 

I think you are fine now - as I said, anything dodgy was dealt with by Gary  before you came here. Windows 10 is the most secure system there has been and as long as you have a decent antivirus and firewall you should be fine.

 

Also, remember to update CryptoPrevent as the unpaid version doesn't update automatically.

 

Are you happy to tidy up?

Hello Satchfan,

 

I think things are good.....the best part about disabling the Malwarebytes and Eset product is it let Windows defender catch the Trojan  Rogue:JS/Fakecall.D   I cant thank you enough for your help putting the registry and files back together again..  Yes Gary is awesome, he actually helped with an issue that was different, it was  a Malwarebytes popup.

 

Anyway thanks so much for all your help. I hope you have a great new year ahead,

You're welcome

 

I hope you have a great new year ahead,

Likewise to you and yours.

 

 

Your computer appears to be clean.

Now that you’re free from malware, as long as your computer seems to be running well, please follow these simple steps to tidy up you computer and decrease the likelihood of getting infected again:


Uninstall AdwCleaner

  • double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool
  • click on Uninstall
  • confirm with Yes.

===================================================

Download & run Delfix

  • download Delfix from here to remove many of the tools we've used during the cleaning process.
  • ensure “Remove disinfection tools” is checked.

Also place a checkmark next to:


o    Create registry backup
o    Purge system restore


  • click the Run button.

You can delete all other logs and programs we’ve used that are on your desktop. Just click on them and press Delete.

===================================================

Windows updates

I notice that Windows updates are waiting to be installed. Click here for information on how to get the latest Windows updates:

===================================================

Recommended programs

SpywareBlaster. SpywareBlaster protects against bad ActiveX, it immunizes your PC against them. It blocks over 11,000 bad sites and uses no resources of your computer.

======================

Update and run Malwarebytes. This really is an excellent program that you should also update and run on a regular basis, probably weekly.

======================

Unchecky

Be careful when downloading free software. Many free programs come bundled with adware, many of which cause redirects/popups and verge on being malware. There is a program that automatically “unckecks” the boxes you may not notice when downloading programs.

Download and install Unchecky .

======================

Update CryptoPrevent

Note: The free version doesn't provide automatic updates but should be updated often, (at least weekly), as this infection has serious consequences. To update it manually, open the program, select the “Updates” menu then select Check for Updates to see if there are any available.

===================================================

I also recommend that you read the following:
