Just to play it safe, open OTMoveIt again and copy this path into the list of files/folders to be moved

C:\W

Click the red Moveit button and paste the results in your next respsonse.

Good - we're done.

Open OTMoveIt again and click the Clean Up button.  If your firewall warns you that OTMoveIt is trying to connect to the internet allow the connection.  Then when asked if you want to proceed with the cleanup, press Yes.  This will remove the tools we downloaded and the malware backups.

Next, we will remove old possibly infected restore points and create a clean restore point:

Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.  Fill the radio button to Create a Restore Point and click Next.  Give the new restore point a name you will recognize if you need to find it (like Clean Point) and click Create.

Now, click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup.  Now click the More Options tab, then click Clean Up in the System Restore section and OK.

Keep SuperAntiSpyware and AVG Antispyware on your computer and scan with them from time to time.  This will help keep you clean.  Spyware Blaster is also a good, passive defense against malware

This is a good time to install it while the computer is clean.

Big thanks to mauserme.
Which will be better to use? I am using Spyware Terminator.
If I download spywareblaster, would it affect?

SpywareBlaster is passive so it won't conflict with either avast or SpywareTerminator (ST) or SuperAntiSpyware (SAS) or AVG-AS.

The only consideration is not to have two resident anti-spyware applications installed at the same time. AVG-AS is resident during your 30 trial period, but reverts to on-demand (or can be set to on-demand to avoid conflict). SAS free I believe is on-demand only so it shouldn't be a problem with ST.

You're welcome, too, chinhis13  :)

David explained the antispyware part better than I could have ...
