  1. The laptop had belonged to the college age daughter of a neighbor who said his daughter had bought a new computer and had left her old one in the garage and he was cleaning out the garage and getting rid of unwanted clutter. He asked if I could use that laptop. The laptop computer I was gifted with is an ASUS with an Intel Premium processor, 500 gig hard drive, and Windows 7 installed. It has a manufacture date of June 2012, so it's less than 2 years old, and probably used about a year. I've had it since just before Thanksgiving 2013 and didn't want to deal with it over the holidays. I
  2. At the present time, I'm using McAfee anti-virus on my desktop PC, and it's been suggested that I should look into another anti-virus. In addition to my desktop PC, I've been gifted with a not quite 2-year-old laptop and need to put an anti-virus on that computer. I also have the pro version of Malwarebytes on my desktop. Do I need to buy another copy of the pro version for the laptop too? Any suggestions as to what anti-virus I should get.
  3. I've uninstalled Combofix and used OTCleanIt to remove the tools used. It's looking good! I can't thank you enough for all your help! Thank you so much for all your time and patience in helping to resolve this computer malware.
  4. The computer is running just fine now. It's running smoothly and quickly. I don't see any signs of infection at all. I haven't downloaded and installed Malwarebytes Pro yet, as I wanted to make sure everything was running normally first. If I understand correctly, I'm to disable my antivirus, then download and install Malwarebytes Pro. Upon installation will Malwarebytes Pro automatically ignore the 9 McAfee components and put them on the ignore list, or do I have to manually put them on the ignore list?
  5. I'm surprised that the Security Check still shows Adobe Reader out of date. I did the update prior to downloading and running Security Check. Scorpion Saver by Adpeak is no longer listed on my list of programs.

  10. I clicked on Scorpion Saver by Adpeak and uninstall. Instead of uninstalling the program I got a pop-up from windows asking if I wanted to allow this program to update on this computer. I clicked on "no" as I think it was going to update and re-install that program.
  11. I've uninstalled Combofix and have downloaded and run OTCleanIt. All of the programs and tools are gone from my desktop except for Security Check. I went to my programs and I had removed ESET after the first time I used it. In going through the programs list I noticed a program there and I'm wondering if it's a legitimate program. It's called Scorpion Saver by Adpeak. It was installed on October 31, 2013 during the time my computer had the virus/trojan. Is this a program that I should uninstall? I want to thank you for all your help! You've worked wonders for my computer! Thank Yo
  12. Sorry it's taken so long to get back to this. We had to make another long 140 mil round trip to the bank today and I'm just now getting online. Here's the log from Security Check. So far everything seems to be running smoothly. I can now access the Google search engine, and I haven't had any alerts from McAfee. I was concerned about FireFox as I've had things show up in the "Add-Ons" and I've never subscribed to any add on features. I had that Linsicle add on that turned words in my posts to links and that's now gone. Yesterday, McAfee SiteAdvisor and a Mozilla programs called Default

  15. I posted the Addition log above. This is the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool. I download both versions of the FRST.txt, but only the 64 bit would run on my computer. I realized after I did the scan that my antivirus was on. Was I supposed to turn it off?
