    It's working like a dream!
    I installed the update for windows, restarted my computer and then ran the CCleaner. For some reason I had to reinstall Java (it disappeared?). Restarted again. Got on Firefox and google random things. Can't believe it but whatever that was is gone!
    I want to thank you so much for helping me with this issue! ;)

    You're welcome, but there are a few more things to fix AND we must finish up to make sure your computer is protected in the future. :D

    OTL Fix

    Please run OTL
    • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, copy and paste in the following:

    • Then click the Run Fix button at the top.
    • Note: The fix for OTL automatically hides your Desktop and Start menu so the fix can be completed. Do not be alerted, as this is normal.
    • Please do not exit the program. It might take a while to fix, but allow it to run. If it asks to reboot the computer, allow it to reboot. If the program freezes, and the computer fails to reboot - let me know.
      Lastly, post the contents of the log. (Located at C:\_OTL\Moved Files)

    Oh my, I'm looking at the items on this list and it sounds scary. What are all these deleted files?

    Allow me to run through them in a quick and simple way... I colored them to help you understand if they were a threat or not.
