OK, if no issues we can clean up as follows ;-
Remove Combofix now that we're done with it
The above procedure will delete the following:
It is very important that you get a successful uninstall because of the extra functions done at the same time, let me know if this does not happen.
Download and scan with CCleaner
1. Use either one of the two free links below the Premium version. If you are offered any Toolbars etc such as Yahoo just decline the offer.
2. Before first use, select Options > Advanced and UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 24 hours"
3. Then select the items you wish to clean up.
In the Windows Tab:
In the Applications Tab:
4. Click the "Run Cleaner" button.
5. A pop up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system.
6. Click "OK" and it will scan and clean your system.
7. Click "exit" when done.
CCleaner is an excellent Utility and well worth keeping, bottom left hand corner of main interface is link "Online Help" use that link to get the full instructions for this very handy application.
Regarding Security, this is my recommendation:
To keep safe when online you need a good Antivirus/Antspyware/Antimalware/Anti-Rootkit combination application. Microsoft Security Essentials covers all of those bases, but better still it is free. Go Here and hit the "Download it free today" tab, follow the prompts. Once installed it will want to update and carry out a quick scan, allow that to happen.
Go Here for information that will show you how to install and use MSE.
You also need a software Firewall, Online Armour Free Firewall is one of the best available, also go Here for an excellent tutorial that will show you how to use it.
I`d also keep Malwarebytes free version for twice weekly quick scans or as required scans. Always remember to update first. If you have a spare £20 upgrade to the professional version, you get realtime protection and auto updates. It also works well with MSE and Online Armour and is a lifetime license, that is my own set up.
