Hello again, blaaargh. Your logs appear clean. You should be good to go.

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

Please re-enable your antivirus program and any other antispyware programs disabled earlier if you haven't already.

Run AdwCleaner and go File > Uninstall > Yes

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

Press the Windows "logo" key and "R" key then copy/paste the following single-line command into the Run box and click OK:

cmd /c rd /s /q "C:\FRST"

A DOS window will open and close again, this is normal.

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

You can safely delete any tools downloaded or any logs, files, and any shortcuts on your desktop that were created during this fix.

Keep MBAM, update and run a Scan('Threat Scan' by default, or 'Scan Now' under the Dashboard tab) weekly.

Empty your Recycle Bin if it does not do so automatically.

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

MICROSOFT UPDATES
It is very important that you get all of the critical updates for your Operating System and Internet Explorer. Keeping your OS and browser up to date will help make you less susceptible to attacks by Trojans and viruses. Please go to Microsoft and download all the critical updates to help prevent possible re-infection.

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

Make sure you backup your system, so possible reformatting in the future isn't necessary:

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

SPYWARE PREVENTION
In light of your recent problem, I'm sure you'd like to avoid any future infections. Please read this well written article: To help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs if you do not already have them:
  • WOT, Web of Trust, warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware, or send spam. Protect your computer against online threats by using WOT as your front-line layer of protection when browsing or searching in unfamiliar territory. WOT's color-coded icons show you ratings for 21 million websites, helping you avoid the dangerous sites:
    • Green to go
    • Yellow for caution
    • Red to stop
    WOT has an add-on available for IE, Firefox, and Chrome.
  • MVPS HOSTS FILE replaces your current HOSTS file with one that will restrict known ad sites from serving you unsolicited advertisements. It basically prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1, which is the IP of your local computer. See guide here and for Windows 7 here
Keep your antivirus program and antispyware programs updated and scan with them on a regular basis.

Please respond to this thread one more time so we can mark this thread as resolved.

Thank you so much for the assist, Chemist. I really appreciate the assist.

If it's not too much, might I ask for this thread to be deleted? Again, thank you.


Much obliged. - B

Yes. But mostly because I noticed there was an IP address for my machine. It is an office machine so I do not want to be the source of a problem, if ever.
