  1. I followed the 8 steps for Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal, I was just wondering if I did everything right and if I need to do anything more. I included the log from the Antivirus scan from the program Avira. I received a trojan virus called 360 Antivirus and I hope I got rid of it by following theses steps. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Ok you did a good job.

    UPDATE and run MBAM and SAS again Quick scan the MBAM had cleaned items but could find more we need to see clean logs in both programs. In SAS select the tracking cookies this time and remove them.

    Do the below to be sure!

    Download SDFix to Desktop.

    On Desktop run SDdFix It will run (install) then close.

    Then reboot into Safe Mode

    As the computer starts up, tap the F8 key several times.

    On the Boot menu Choose Safe Mode.

    Click thu all the prompts to get to desktop.

    At Desktop
    My Computer C: drive. Double-click to open.

    Look for a folder called SD Fix. Double-click to enter SD Fix.

    Double-click to RunThis.bat. Type Y to begin.

    SD Fix does its job.

    When prompted hit the enter key to restart the computer

    Your computer will reboot.

    On normal restart the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then say Finished,
    Hit the Enter key to end the script and load your desktop icons.

    Once the desktop is up, the SDFix report will open on screen and also be saved to the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
    Attach the Report.txt file to your next post.
    Download ComboFix

    NOTE: If you have had ComboFix more than a few days old delete and re-download.

    Get it here:
    Or here:

    Double click combofix.exe follow the prompts.

    Install Recovery Console if connected to the Internet!

    When finished, it will open a log.
    Attach the log and a new HJT log in your next reply.

    Note: Do not click combofix's window while its running. That may cause it to stall.
