Excellent. As far as I can see, your computer is CLEAN.



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

Time to uninstall used tools.

  • Go to Start > Run and type or copy/paste Combofix /uninstall (note the space before the "/").
  • Double click OTL.exe to run it again and click the CleanUp button.
  • If we used any other tools and they still remain on your desktop, please delete them manually.
  • TDSSKiller has created a folder: C:\TDSSKiller_Quarantine. Please delete that folder and its contents.

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

Do you have any more questions or do you want to see my ALORTKYCC (Awesome List Or Recommendations To Keep Your Computer Clean)?

Hi Gabe,

Wanted to give you a big thank you for helping me clean my system. Yes I would love to see your awesome list or recommendations to keep my computer clean.


One question I have is this: After the whole cleaning process was done, everytime I launch internet explorer, a manage addon window pops up. Does it everytime and I'm not sure how to turn it off.

ehhhmm... neither do I. I am one of those users that avoids Internet Explorer like the plague.
Try and google your problem. You should not be the first to have it.

Allright! Here follows my ALORTKYCC (Awesome List Of Recommendations To Keep Your Computer Clean):

1) Keep your Windows up-to-date. Windows Autoupdate should be ON (see Start >> Control Panel >> Security Center). An alternative way (but more time-consuming) is to periodically visit [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Hackers are looking every day for new security holes. Microsoft keeps patching them. You cannot fall behind in this race, it will make your system vulnerable.

2) For your average daily computer activities, use a limited/standard user account, not an administrator account. If you use Vista/WIN7 do not disable User Account Control (UAC). You would be amazed to know how much malware canīt touch you if you deny it admin rights. Create a separate password-protected administrator account that you use for admin activities, like (un)installing software.

3) Use a good antivirus. There are various free ones, you cannot go wrong with either of the following three:
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. If you want your antivirus to be light on resources, I recommend Panda. Install without the toolbar.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has received great reviews from leading security analysts.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is a very complete antivirus, with modules like mailscanner and webshield.

4) If your computer has 1GB system memory or more, you should install a third party firewall, to replace the weak Windows Firewall. I recommend:
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Install the internet security suite, but without the antivirus and without the Hopsurf toolbar.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. A very smart and user friendly firewall.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is another rocksolid choice.

Note: you should run only ONE antivirus and ONE firewall. Running multiples of either is bad, it will cause slowdowns and/or conflicts.

5) Miscellaneous advice:
  • Stay away from cracks and keygens (look [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for the why). Get free software instead. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is an excellent source of freeware reviews.
  • Navigate safely. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is the safest browser available. However, Mozilla Firefox can be made extremely safe with the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] addon. Internet Explorer (always use [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) can be made a lot safer with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (manual [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]).
  • The [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] addon will help you to stay on reliable webpages.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] alerts you when changes are made in vital system areas. Especially good on light systems not running a third party firewall.
  • Make sure you have ways to recuperate your operating system and vital other data if its gets frustrated by malware and/or other problems. A Windows setup CD and recent backups/disk images will be priceless, if you find yourself in an unexpected tight spot.

Finally: did we help you? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]!
