Hello! First time poster here, but I've been a fan of the site for a few years and it's lead to some very helpful advice. I'm the IT manager for a community theater and our box office computer was recently infected with a nice bundle of malware.

I've used AdwCleaner, CCleaner, MBAM, and JRT to deal with the symptoms of these programs and attempt to remove the cause, but I'm not sure if what I've done is thorough enough. If it's not too much trouble, I'd love some help for a computer checkup and peace of mind with a clean bill of health.

Can you post the logs from Adwcleaner. JRT, and MBAM?

Unfortunately AdwCleaner and JRT's logs were deleted, but here is MBAM's log with some of what AdwCleaner found:

Nothing out of the ordinary, just being paranoid since a lot of people use this computer with their info and aren't always careful about what they click on.

Well the scans removed a lot of stuff, and have you received any popups and stuff for ads?
