I ran TFC and Sophos but they apparently didn't find anything, so it didn't ask me to restart or clean up. There were no logs either.

Your computer is clean


1. This step will remove all cleaning tools we used, it'll reset restore points (so you won't get reinfected by accidentally using some older restore point) and it'll make some other minor adjustments...
This is a very crucial step so make sure you don't skip it.
Download
DelFix by Xplode to your desktop. Delfix will delete all the used tools and logfiles.

Double-click Delfix.exe to start the tool.
Make sure the following items are checked:
  • Activate UAC (optional; some users prefer to keep it off)
  • Remove disinfection tools
  • Create registry backup
  • Purge System Restore
  • Reset system settings
Now click "Run" and wait patiently.
Once finished a logfile will be created. You don't have to attach it to your next reply.

2. Make sure Windows Updates are current.

3. If any trojans, rootkits or bootkits were listed among your infection(s), make sure, you change all of your on-line important passwords (bank account(s), secured web sites, etc.) immediately!

4. Check if your browser plugins are up to date.
Firefox - https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/
other browsers: https://browsercheck.qualys.com/ (click on "Scan without installing plugin" and then on "Scan now")

5. Run Malwarebytes "Quick scan" once in a while to assure safety of your computer.

6. Run Temporary File Cleaner (TFC) and AdwCleaner weekly (you need to redownload these tools since they were removed by DelFix).

7. (optional) If you want to keep all your programs up to date, download and install FileHippo App Manager.
The Update Checker will scan your computer for installed software, check the versions and then send this information to FileHippo.com to see if there are any newer releases.

8. When installing\updating ANY program, make sure you always select "Custom " installation, so you can UN-check any possible "drive-by-install" (foistware), like toolbars etc., which may try to install along with the legitimate program. Do NOT click "Next" button without looking at any given page.

9. Read:
How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic2520.html

10. Please, let me know, how your computer is doing.

Thank you so much! Can you please tell me what was wrong with it? I will let you know how my computer is doing after this.

Sophos is still on my computer after running Deflix. Should I leave it on even if I already have Malwarebytes?

Sophos is only on demand scanner so it doesn't run in real time.
You can uninstall it or leave it for future use.

There wasn't much on your computer. We did just some basic cleaning.
How is it now?

Hi Broni,

I'm sorry I didn't get to reply sooner! I'm glad to know that there isn't anything malicious on my computer. I wonder why LOL got deleted? Right now, the computer feels sluggish. I'm suspecting it's got something to do with Windows' latest update.

Again, thank you so much for all your hep! I will be using your link to send some of my heartfelt gratitude your way.
