Hi sneakyone,

ESET scan results window has a choice of checking the box of these 2 options before selecting "finish" to exit :

1. Uninstall applicaion on close

2. Delete quarantine file

Let me know especially whether "Delete quarantine files" should be selected, thanks.

Hi DIENT42, Smile

Please select them both and click 'Finish'.

=======

Your computer is now clean. Now, time to remove the tools used.

Updating System Restore
Now to get you off to a good start we will clean your restore points so that all the bad stuff is gone for good. Then if you need to restore at some stage you will be clean. There are several ways to reset your restore points, but this is my method:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
  • On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
  • Click NEXT
  • Enter a name e.g. Clean
  • Click CREATE.


You now have a clean restore point.

To get rid of the bad ones:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
  • In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
  • Click OK
  • The System will do a calculation of temporary/old files, and then display a dialogue box.
  • Select the More Options Tab.
  • At the bottom will be a System Restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
  • Accept the Warning and select OK again, the program will close and you are done.


========

Removing the tools
Now, to remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created, please do the following:

Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer:
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click OTC.exe.
  • Click the CleanUp! button.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.
    Note: If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.


========

Here are some prevention tips I have provided:

1. Don't download files from untrusted websites or websites that seem suspious.

2. Don't use torrents they are a good way to get lots of malware.

3. Don't download and use cracks/warez/keygens they are illegal and are another good way to contract malware.

4. Disable autorun [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

5. Always make sure you have the latest Windows updates. windowsupdate.microsoft.com

6. Don't ever click on the links inside of a popup.

7. Make sure you know what you install you can make sure it is not know for being a virus by just simply searching about it on google.

8. Use a Site Advisor so you don't go to sites that will infect you. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

9. Also there are many holes and flaws in Internet Explorer I recommend using [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to keep you more safe.

10. Always keep your [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and Adobe updated.

11. Don't fall for the Scareware. What is Scareware? it is a website made to download a rogue Antivirus on your system that will scare you into buying their fake software due to false detections.

12. Always have a Firewall and a Antivirus.
