Seems to be running quite well... no pop-ups thusfar.   *crosses fingers*

Your help has been most appreciated, Magna!  I have learned an awful lot! 

If I need anything else, I will seek you out.

It is necessary to uninstall ComboFix :
  • Click Start (or ) then Run.

    On Windows7 or Vista you may use Start Search field if Run is not available.

  • In the line of text type in (Copy) the following:
Code: [Select]
ComboFix /Uninstall
    Note that there is a space between " ComboFix " and " /Uninstall " .

    • then click OK (or press Enter ).
    Wait for the uninstall process is complete.


    > Re-run OTL and click on CleanUp! button.

    You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the cleanup process, choose Yes.
    After the reboot all the tools we used should be gone.
    Note: Some more recently created tools may not yet be removed by OTL. Feel free to manually delete any tools it leaves behind.


    I recommended to keep Malwarebytes and to use MCShield if you will.
    You may download MCShield from one of the following links:

    MyCity -  Official download link
    Softpedija - Mirror download link

    It will prevent infection by computer via USB flash drive, mobile phone or any other memory card.
    And not only will prevent infection, but it will immediately clean flash drive, memory card or external HDD.
