Hi I dunno much about computers but got infected by mypcbackup virus when I unpurposely installed it.


And tried to remove as much as I could using these programs:




Junkware Removal tool - although 4 registery key could not be deleted

Malwarebytes Anti Malware




I also scanned it with my Avast Anti-virus and found no virus.


I just want to see if someone can confirm everything is clean now or whether I am still infected.  Particularly concerned that Junkware Removal tool could not get rid of them registry keys.  I run Window 8 and just use the windows firewall.  Also I only use Google Chrome.


Thanks in advance.
