For what it's worth AVG Threat labs deems it safe: http://www.avgthreatlabs.com/ww-en/website-safety-reports/domain/Macory.com

But as always I take these crowd sourced, automated assessment sites with a grain of salt.

Please download the following tools to your desktop and use them in the order listed. They will search for and remove many potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), adware, toolbars, browser hijackers, extensions, add-ons and other junkware as well as related registry entries (values, keys) and remnants.

RKill created by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), the site owner of BleepingComputer.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0
AdwCleaner created by Xplode.
Junkware Removal Tool created by thisisu.

1. Double-click on RKill to launch the tool. A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully. A log file will be created and saved to the root directory, C:\RKill.log. Copy and paste the contents of RKill.log in your next reply.

Important: Do not reboot your computer until you complete the next step.

2. Install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and perform a THREAT SCAN following these instructions.

  • If Malwarebytes encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally will prevent Malwarebytes from removing all the malware.
  • When finished, post the complete log in your next reply to include the top portion which shows database version and your operating system.
  • Refer to this topic for instructions on how to save/export a Scan log...How do I access and save logs from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware?.

.
3. Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Logfile button...a report (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
  • After reviewing the log, click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.


-- Note: The contents of the AdwCleaner log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you recognize and know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, return to AdwCleaner before cleaning...all detected items will be listed (and checked) in each tab. Click on and uncheck any items you want to keep.


Close all open programs and shut down any protection/security software to avoid potential conflicts.

4. Double-click on JRT.exe to run the tool.
Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log file named JRT.txt will automatically open and be saved to your Desktop.
  • Copy and paste the contents of JRT.txt in your next reply.

There is nothing of significant concern showing in your logs.

Try doing an online scan to see if it finds anything else that the other scans may have missed.

Please perform a scan with Eset Online Anti-virus Scanner.
If using Mozilla Firefox, you will be prompted to download and use the ESET Smart Installer. Just double-click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to install.
Vista/Windows 7/8 users need to run Internet Explorer/Firefox as Administrator.
To do this, right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select Run As Administrator from the context menu.

  • Click the green esetOnline.png button.
  • Read the End User License Agreement and check the box:
  • Check esetAcceptTerms.png.
  • Click the esetStart.png button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser and allow the download/installation of any require files.
  • Under scan settings, check esetScanArchives.png and check Remove found threats
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications
    • Enable detection of potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • Click the Start button.
  • ESET will install itself, download virus signature database updates, and begin scanning your computer.
  • Please be patient as the scan can take some time to complete...close all programs and do NOT use the computer while the scan is running.
    If given the option (when threats are found), choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.
  • When the scan completes, push esetListThreats.png
  • Push esetExport.png, and save the file to your desktop as ESETScan.txt.
  • Push the esetBack.png button, then Finish.
  • Copy and paste the contents of ESETScan.txt in your next reply. If no threats are found, there is no option to create a log.

If you have other antivirus, antispyware or anti-malware programs running on your computer, they may intercept the scan being performed by the ESET Online Scanner and hinder performance. You may wish to disable the real-time protection components of your other security software before running the ESET Online Scanner. Remember to turn them back on after you are finished.
ESET Online Scanner FAQs

-- Note: If you recognize any of the detections as legitimate programs, it's possible they are "false positives" and you can ignore them or get a second opinion if you're not sure. ESET's detection rate is high and can include legitimate files which it considers suspicious, a Risk Tool, Hacking Tool, Potentially Unwanted Program, a possible threat or even Malware (virus/trojan) when that is not always the case. Be careful what you choose to remove. If in doubt, ask before taking action.

ESET Log:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Cheat Engine 6.4\standalonephase1.dat a variant of Win32/HackTool.CheatEngine.AF potentially unsafe application deleted - quarantined
C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell Backup and Recovery\Components\DBRUpdate\hstart.exe a variant of Win32/HiddenStart.A potentially unsafe application deleted - quarantined
C:\Users\Me\Downloads\CheatEngine64 (1).exe a variant of Win32/OpenCandy.C potentially unsafe application deleted - quarantined
C:\Users\Me\Downloads\CheatEngine64.exe a variant of Win32/OpenCandy.C potentially unsafe application deleted - quarantined
 
Did they get quarantined or deleted?

Both. Those detections too were nothing of concern as far as malware goes.

I would restore the hstart.exe file since it is part of Dell's backup and recovery.
 

Key Features
Quarantine - Delete or quarantine infected files into a special folder, where they no longer pose a threat to your system. Quarantined files can also be restored...

Using Eset Online Anti-virus ScannerNote: If you selected the check box "Delete quarantined files" in the ESET Online Scanner window before starting the scan, you cannot restore the removed files.
