Hi,

Your computer is now clean!

Uninstall FRST
  • Right-click on FRST/FRST64, and select Rename.
  • Rename it to Uninstall.exe and press Enter on your keyboard.
  • Double-click on Uninstall.exe. Your computer will restart, and allow it to do so. FRST will now uninstall.
Feel free to delete other tools we used in the clean-up process.

---------------------

Here are some tips to keep your computer safe on the Internet:

Keep your antivirus up to date and enabled. If you use Windows 8.1 or 10, using Windows Defender is sufficient protection. However, if you use Windows 7, running an antivirus is recommended. Some good AVs are Microsoft Security Essentials, BitDefender, or Kaspersky.


Keep your Windows operating system up to date. Make sure the Automatic Updates feature on your computer is enabled, so Windows can install updates automatically and keep your system up to date. Additionally, make sure to keep your third party software (such as Java, Adobe Flash, and Web browsers) up to date as well.


Use secure passwords. Make sure your passwords are complex and difficult to guess. There are password managers (for example, Bitwarden) that can help you keep track of your passwords and use secure passwords. Make sure to use a different password at every website that requires a login.


Don't download attachments without knowing what they are. Do not download any email attachments that end with an extension of .exe, .pif, .com, or .bat. When downloading third party software, make sure to download it from the developer. Also, un-check offers of additional software when installing some software you want.


Be cautious when using P2P software such as BitTorrent or uTorrent. Often these are used for the downloading of pirated software. Avoid pirated/cracked software, as it is one of the top ways that computer users get malware infections.
