  1. Hello, I just finished following the instructions in the thread "Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions."

    and wanted to see if the lil' nasties were gone. I will attach the logs i have ..if i miss something please let me know.

    Thanks for the great instructions

    notes...log from avg anti-spyware was too large to attach...mostly tracking cookies

    anti-rootkit returned no values

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your HJT log is clean.

    However, you`re running an old version of Java and it needs updating.

    Go to your control panel and double click the Java icon. Click the update tab and click update now. Once the updates have been downloaded and installed, close Java.

    Open add remove programmes and uninstall all versions of java except for update 11. Close control panel.

    Go and run the Ccleaner programme as per the instructions in step9 of this thread HERE.

    Run a fresh AVG Antispyware scan and attach the logfile if anything is found.
