Greetings, I was hoping someone might help me find out if i have removed all the threats or if there are more. I recently bought this computer from a friend and after having someone remotely fix it and  runnuing all the test, they wanted 150 bucks we(may family) don't have. I ran combofix and it scrubbed a number of items, Im not sure if its all clean and what I can do from keeping this from happening again. I've attached both logs from DDS and my combofix log. Furthermore combo fix was ran previous to dds. Thanks you, as a Former Marine I would like to thank this community for your service to those of use who are clueless. No one ever drowned in sweat!...........Seafour

Secure your system by updating 3rd party programs.

Your version of Java is outdated and needs to be updated to take advantage of fixes that have eliminated security vulnerabilities.

Be careful not to install malware posing as Java update!
Important read this blog.
http://blog.trendmicro.com/trendlabs-security-intelligence/malware-poses-as-an-update-for-java-0-day-fix/

Quoted from the page.
"In light of the recent events surrounding Java, users must seriously consider their use of Java. Do they really need it? If yes, make sure that users follow the steps we recommended and get the security update directly from the official oracle website." at:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

How to disable Java in your browsers
http://www.infoworld.com/t/web-browsers/how-disable-java-in-your-browsers-210882

You can manually check your present version and update as recommended.
https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

If present remove the old version(s) of Java using the Add/Remove Programs applet.


Java 7 Update 15


Java 7 update 10 introduced important new security controls
You can read about it here.
http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2012/12/19/java-7-update-10-introduces-important-new-security-controls/

Note
Java security update installs Ask Toolbar by default -- a single click in a multi-step installer.
http://www.benedelman.org/images/iac-jan13/ask-iac-011613-small.png
I suggest that your un-check the box "Install the Ask Toolbar" before proceeding.

Critical vulnerabilities have been identified in old version of Adobe Flash Player please get the latest version.

Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player 11.6.602.171 and earlier versions for Windows, Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.273 and earlier versions for Macintosh, and Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.273 and earlier versions for Linux.

Get the latest Flash Player

On the top of the page you will be given an opportunity to download the version for your operating system.
Make sure you select appropriate version.

You will also have an option to install the Free! McAfee Security Scan Plus Un-check the box if you are NOT using McAfee's virus protection software.

For the users of Internet Explorer download version 11.
Flash Player 11 (64 bit)
Flash Player 11 (32 bit)
===

Get the latest version of the Adobe Reader.
http://get.adobe.com/reader/
Before your download I suggest you unckeck the box on the top right "Yes, install McAfee Security Scan Plus - optional" this is not required if you are not a McAfee subscriber. While the installation is in progress you can also deny the installation of any other programs that may be suggested.

When installed remove your old version of the Reader using the Add/Remove Programs applet if present.
===

You are clean.

Run the AdwCleaner on occasion to remove any unwanted toolbars that are installed without your consent.
