    Update malwarebyte, run a complete scan, have it to fix what if find.

    Please download Combofix:

    And save to the desktop.

    Close all other browser windows.

    Please connect all your external hard drive/flash drive before running Combofix, if you have any

    Double-click on the combofix icon found on your desktop.

    Please note, that once you start combofix you should not click anywhere on the combofix window as it can cause the program to stall. In fact, when combofix is running, do not touch your computer at all and just take a break as it may take a while for it to complete.

    Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted. Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, please attach it to your next post

    My pleasure :)

    You should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one.
    The easiest and safest way to do this is:
    Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
    Select Create a restore point, and Ok it.
    Next, go to Start > Run and type in cleanmgr
    Select the More options tab
    Choose the option to clean up system restore and OK it.

    This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created.

    Please download OTCleanIt
    Save it to desktop.
    This will remove all the tools we used to clean your computer.
    Double-click OTCleanIt.exe. Click CleanUp. Say Yes to the "Begin cleanup Process?"
    When asked if you want to proceed with the cleanup process, click Yes. Restart your computer when prompted.
    Please note. It will NOT remove Mbam, Ccleaner and SuperAntispyware.

    To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet, please read Tony Klein´s guide:
    How did I get infected in the first place

    Keep safe :wave:
