  1. Hello All,
    Like alot of other people on the forum, I seem to have gotten my laptop infected with PC-Antispyware, abebot, TrojanDownloader.XS, that bogus "SecuritySystem - Protection Control Panel", etc. So I would greatly appreciate help with this matter, if anyone can help (You seem to really know your stuff Kritius :) )
    So I've done as Kritius said in previous threads, and so I'm including the Hijackthis and Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware logs, and I have also run Malwarebyte's scan and removed all found items.

    Thank you in advance for any and all help,
