Running Windows Vista Home Premium; My Norton Anti-virus expired in the last week, but my brother-in-law told me I should just do Avast!/Malwarebytes instead. Of course I didn't download and install them yet and ended up with this nasty little virus. I had a hard time doing ANYTHING on my computer, but thankfully downloaded several versions of rkill and malwarebytes on a diff comp and was able to transfer them until one finally worked. Anyway, here is the file it spit out. Could someone please check it and let me know if I need to do anything else?

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
version: 6373
Windows 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2
Internet Explorer 9.0.8112.16421

Hallo ctrsara.:thumbup2:
The scan with malwarebytes must be complete and no rapid
To be more secure repeat the scan.

As for antivirus, I advise you avira :wink:

Thank you; I am doing a full scan this morning (though it looks as if it may take all day... I do video and have a LOT of storage and files...). Is Avira better than Avast? In what way?
