Hi everyone!
My Toshiba Satellite laptop is infected with a Trojan called "System Defragementer", a Trojan.FakeAlert, since yesterday.
I installed Malwarebytes anti-malware, did 3 scans, and removed the trojan which was put in quarantine. I also did a scan with AVG free and with the free trial of Hitman Pro 3.5
I am doing a 4th scan with MBAM right now, because I still have the System Defragmenter icon on my desktop and in my task bar.
Please please please if you're reading this and you know about malware removals, could you help me out?
Thanks, it's good karma! :thumbsup:

ps. I've attached a file, it's an image of what my screen looks like
