    Still having difficulty pasting and posting, having to log out and log back in with each individual post to avoid "Something went wrong" redirect.

    Update Adobe Flash Player: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
    Make sure you UN-check Yes, install McAfee Security Scan Plus

    NOTE 1: Beginning with Adobe Flash Version 11.3, the universal installer includes the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Flash Player.
    NOTE 2: While installing make sure you UN-check any extra garbage which wants to install alongside.

    Update your Java version here: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
    Alternate download: http://www.filehippo.com/search?q=java

    Note 1: UNCHECK any pre-checked toolbar and/or software offered with the Java update. The pre-checked toolbars/software are not part of the Java update.
    Note 2: If you're running 64-bit system make sure you install BOTH, 32-bit and 64-bit Java.

    ==================================================

    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), AdwCleaner and Junkware Removal Tool (JRT) weekly (you need to redownload these tools since they were removed by DelFix).

    7. Download and install Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI): http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/. The Secunia PSI is a FREE security tool designed to detect vulnerable and out-dated programs and plug-ins which expose your PC to attacks. Run it weekly.

    8. (optional) If you want to keep all your programs up to date, download and install FileHippo Update Checker.
    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.

    9. 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.

    10. Read:

    Thank you Broni for all your help. The computer seems to be running more smoothly and I will be going through all eleven steps you outlined over the next day or so.
