  1. I've completed the 8 steps and it seems to have worked.

    I just want to make sure.

    Logs enclosed.

    You had some pretty bad Malwares in there, and McAfee did not protect you originally :(
    McAfee is acually on the lower end of the Antivirus scale, and I suspect there are still more Viruses on your system.

    Do this.


    Uninstall your McAfee Antivirus
    Then run the McAfee Removal Tool

    Install Avira free AntiVirus

    Start up Malwarebytes again; Update it; then run a full scan (remove all found Malwares)
    You need to run this multiple times, until all hidden Malwares are uncovered and removed. But keep Avira active by default.

    Reply back with the Avira log (should be a surprise for you)
    And the new Malwarebytes log

    Edit:


    I'd say uninstall it ;)

    Actually I just installed McAfee today.

    Before today I had Norton.

    I'm running a second scan now.

    McAfee and Norton and AVG8 are the worlds worst Antiviruses (IMHO)
