Thanks so much for responding. :thumbsup:

I am following the instructions as set out here:

I am at step 4. Steps 2 and 3 seemed not to apply so moved to 4 to manually remove the software.

I have created the HJT.ref file for possible later reference if clean-up tools do not work.

Software that I have identified / assume as malicious:

- Warning Center
- IEBrowse Tool
- IExplorer Bar
- InCD

These are the programs I have identified, I fear there may be others that are not so obvious. I have found the Uninstall list so will have to check that with any programs I query.

Would you recommend I now follow your steps with the Windows Clean Up Utility prior to taking steps 6.7.8.and 9 at CastleCops as above?

Many thanks for your advice!
Most appreciated. :flowers:

You have posted in the wrong forum. I'll move you to the correct one

Off the top of my head, InCD is a legitimate application

MBAM has become a lot more prevalent since then, I would start there

several of the reccomendations at castlecops don't work well with these newer rogue malware

It's ok to remove incd thru add/remove programs, it's a nero packet writting app that has caused a lot of grief over the years, even ahead warns of it's incompatibility with xp and later OS's

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
