  1. I just want to make sure that my computer has been cleaned of the pop up thing since I have been having those annoying pop ups for the past couple of days. The 3 logs have been attached. Thanks.

    No, it's still there. Download and run combofix.

    Then post the Combofix log.

    Those 8 Steps need to be updated. :)

    Well Malwarebytes has updated the program revision and definitions since last you used it. So this may be a good idea to run it again

    But personally I'd say remove McAfee (just a resource hog, and it didn't help you this time anyhow ! )


    Uninstall your McAfee Antivirus
    Then run the McAfee Removal Tool

    Un-install: Viewpoint (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

    Then it may work better ;)
