Fine - was running fine anyway, it was just that one issue with a file I created in visual studio. I assume in that case it must have been a false positive?

At this point, that's what it looks like. Let's clean up.

This step will remove all cleaning tools we used, it'll reset restore points (so you won't get reinfected by accidentally using some older restore point) and it'll make some other minor adjustments...
This is a very crucial step so make sure you don't skip it.
Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to your desktop. Delfix will delete all the used tools and logfiles.

Double-click Delfix.exe to start the tool.
Make sure the following items are checked:

  • Activate UAC (optional; some users prefer to keep it off)
  • Remove disinfection tools
  • Create Registry backup
  • Purge System Restore Points
  • Re-set system settings

Now click "Run" and wait patiently.
Once finished a logfile will be created. You don't have to attach it to your next reply.
****************************************
Click Start> Computer> right click the C Drive and choose Properties> enter
Click Disk Cleanup from there.



Click OK on the Disk Cleanup Screen.
Click Yes on the Confirmation screen.



This runs the Disk Cleanup utility along with other selections if you have chosen any. (if you had a lot System Restore points, you will see a significant change in the free space in C drive)
****************************************
I suggest using [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. WOT is a free Internet security addon for your browser.

Thanks very much for your help.

All done - and ive installed WOT.

Thanks for your help - good to know I wasnt infected.

I'm pretty good and checking what I'm installing, removing any dodgy add-ons etc.. but you just never know.

Is the process we have gone through worthwhile doing on a regular basis?

Regards
Dave

You're welcome. I will lock this thread. If you need it re-opened, please send me a pm.

You may keep MBAM and AdwCleaner and run them on a regular basis.
