My laptop has been infected with malware, Please help


Recommended Posts



Please I downloaded malware infected torrent files and experienced a 1111 error on system startup. I disabled my antivirus for the programs installation.

I was redirected to Safesearch browser every time.  My anti-virus detected several trojans including backdoor after infection.

I found Malwarebytes and this problem stopped. I have used multiple malware removal tools but I'm still paranoid my system is infected.

I have attached results of the Farbar recovery scan of my laptop. Please help me completely remove any leftover malware.

Thank you so much.
