Did MalwareBytes find anything? If your computer was infected, which it sounded like, then the tools I gave you help to begin with, but it would be better for your computer to do a few more scans to make sure. I will give you some suggestions for scans below, but first the following note about Java.
Computers are made more vulnerable by having old software on them, for instance old Java versions. You can check this easily by going to add-remove programs. Look for the versions of Java or J2SE in your list. The current version of Java is Java 6 Update 10
. The others are outdated and should be removed. Some of the older versions which need to be uninstalled look like this:
Java 2 Runtime Environment Standard Edition v1.3.1_04
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 5
Java SE Runtime Environment 6
Java SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1
Java 6 Update 4
If you found you didn't have the current version, you need to REBOOT your computer after uninstalling any old versions (those which aren't Java 6 Update 10. Then go to Current Java Download
to download and install the most recent version. It's important to reboot your computer after you uninstall any old versions or the new one won't install properly.
After you make sure your Java is updated, please run the following scans. If they find anything bad, make a note of the file names they find and then have them remove or fix whatever they find:
The following two are free online scans:BitDefender
<--- you may need to run this with Internet Explorer with Active X enabled, rather than using one of the other browsersMcAfee
- virus, security and Wi-Fi scanners, under "Free Services"
This below program is a free antispyware program like MalwareBytes which you run after installation. It's not something that will interfere with your current antivirus or other spyware programs and it picks up things other scans don't:SuperAntiSpyware
- link to a direct download of the Free
Let me know if you are able to do any of the above and how it goes.
