So everything seems fine?

You can keep this copy of HJT. It doesn't get updated too often. Same with the Steve Gould's Cleanup. That one you can use frome time to time, just to clean up little things that get left laying around.

Take care and keep safe.

You're welcome.

You have one of the best (right now anyway) antispyware programs in SAS as an on demand scanner.

My prefered settings are:


First update SAS Then boot into safe mode and set SAS up like this.

Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
Then click the Scanning Control tab.

Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked
- CHECK ALL BOXES

Return to the main page by clicking close on that screen. On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software click Scan your computer. On the left check C:\Fixed Drive.(and other fixed drives)
Under Complete Scan, choose Perform Complete Scan.
ยท Click Next to start the scan.

When the scan is done, quarentine everything found . Reboot if asked
