I had one of the rogue antivirus on my computer. I had the notorious pop up fake warning, the slowness of the system, resetting homepage of browser, etc.
I performed a few scans and removals. They are Ad-Aware, SuperAntiSpyware, MalwareBytes' AntiMalware and ComboFix.
Each above when completely gives logs and does removals. My computer appears to run normal.
I am still getting this sotfone.ru cookie every time I go to any site. I think this is still from the rogue "AntiSpyCheck" that had gotten onto my computer but all the things above tell me everything was successfully removed.
I also want to mention that after I ran the ComboFix and viewed the log I then closed the log report and then the screen was the blue Dell background with nothing else. It stayed like that for several minutes and didn't appear to be doing anything so I turned off the computer and turned it back on. I'm only mentioning this in case it's important to know.
I'm wondering how I can get rid of the sotfone.ru cookie. I believe getting this cookie tells me there is still some sort of malware, spyware somewhere on my computer?
I'd like thank you in advance for any advice or help you can offer.
