Hello,

Before we start please read and note the following:

icon_arrow.gif Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.

icon_arrow.gif Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.

icon_arrow.gif Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a Upload a File button which you can use to attach your reports. Attach all reports.

icon_arrow.gif Stay with me to the end, the absence of symptoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.

icon_arrow.gif Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.

icon_arrow.gif Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay someone to repair it.

icon_idea.gif I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!

icon_idea.gif There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

Run the tool and check the following boxes below;

Click Run button and wait a few seconds for the programme completes his work.
At this point all the tools we used here should be gone. Tool will create an report for you (C:\DelFix.txt)

The tool will also record healthy state of registry and make a backup using ERUNT program in %windir%\ERUNT\DelFix
Tool deletes old system restore points and create a fresh system restore point after cleaning.
