Hello.
I have been trying to figure out why my search engine kept changing to yahoo from google. I asked the Malwarebytes facebook, and they gave me a removal guide. The removal guide had me install and run Adwcleaner.
I am not a computer expert, and I heard that Adwcleaner is proned to something called false positives? So I was hoping someone could look over this log and tell me what is okay to delete and what is okay to keep on my computer?
This is what came up on my log;





# AdwCleaner v3.310 - Report created 25/09/2014 at 01:48:45
# Updated 12/09/2014 by Xplode
# Operating System : Windows 8.1 Connected  (64 bits)
# Username : Kelsey - ROCKET
# Running from : C:\Users\Kelsey\Downloads\adwcleaner_3.310.exe
# Option : Scan

Hello and :welcome: :

 

We can't work on malware diagnostics and removal in this sub-section of the forum.

So, for expert assistance, I suggest that you please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
It explains the options for free, expert help >>AND<< the preliminary steps to take to expedite the process.
A malware analyst will guide you through the cleanup process.

Thanks,
