I performed a quick scan with Ad-Aware 2008 and it located the file win32.trojan.dnschanger in C:\Program Files\HP Games\Family Feud/uninstall.exe
I removed the file using the Ad-Aware program. I then performed a quick scan using Malwarebyte's Anti-malware program, and then performed a full scan. The file was not detected again. The logs did not indicate any infected registry files.
I then rebooted my laptop, and performed another quick scan using Ad-Aware. The only thing that came up were Privacy things, like cookies and 2 MRU objects. These are a normal occurrence, correct?
I am currently performing a Kaspersky online "critical areas" scan. So far, no detections.
After doing a little research, after I had discovered and removed the file, I did notice my computer was a bit sluggish when starting at the desktop screen after start up. I believe it is because I still have some infection somewhere. I know I became infected sometime this month. I do not know when.
I would like to make sure my computer is truly clean, and the registry is also unharmed/fixed.
Thank you all.
