I had done scanning using AVG anti-virus but it had only captured those cookies, no major virus, trojans or spyware.
As for the MalwareBytes, I had tried to run it once but it took a long while (more than 6 hrs) and it's not completed scanning and hanged. May I know what's the average time for a Quick Scan to complete? Before the program hanged, I saw that there were 2 errors found - "Fake Update" trojan which affected the Registry Keys.
I had since deleted these 2 trojans.
Tonight, I'm gonna try re-running the MalwareBytes again and hopefully it will complete successfully.
I had run OTL previously (before I ran the MalwareByte), would it help in your analysis?
When I bought this laptop, it did not come with an installation CD as the laptop already comes with it being installed as the OS. If I do need to perform a repair install, is there any other way besides having the XP installation CD?
