Hi -

Always glad when MBAM comes to the rescue - Keep an eye on the system for the next few days just to make sure it is fully clean -

Download the free version of SUPERAntispyware from HERE (or click on it in my signature) just to clean any small bugs left -

Moral of the storey - ALWAYS Update your A/Virus and A/Malware every time it is used (daily) - :)

Thanks - :)
