The CPU seems to be running little better but IE seems to keep hanging up on me but I think it is just because my CPU is getting quite old. No warning boxes from AVG telling me of infected files.

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

--> Click on the big CleanUp! button.

This Tool will delete all the tools we Used, if not, let me know which tools are still present !
It will also hide your hidden files etc.

~~~ Let's clean a little your temp folders :)

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.

~~~ Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.

    To keep your operating system up to date visit
  • Microsoft Windows Update
weekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

You can too delete the tools we used for the disinfection.
Keep Malware Byte's Anti Malware.

~~~~ I invite to you now to (re)activating all your resident protections (Antivirus, Antispyware, Firewall.).
You must have access to your protections in the systray zone beside the tasks bar. If you have difficulties, does not hesitate to question me!
If it is not done, make sure that the automatic updates of Windows are activated!
Update correctly your Softwares (Java, Adobe, Flash.) thanks to Sotware Inspector (at Secunia)

~~~~~ How to protect myself ?

Here are some programs free for personal use :

Antivirus softs :

Antispyware softs :

  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.

Firewall :

Cleaners :

  • IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • ATF Cleaner - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.

~~~~~~ Optimize your disc ?
Download and run Auslogics disc defragmenter
