I found some trojans which I quarantined and then deleted using Avast Free Antivirus. Then following the advice on a tutorial for getting rid of Trojans etc I also scanned my pc using Malwarebytes and Emsisoft which didn't find anymore trojans but did find adware and PUPs which I quarantined.
There are 2 files that I couldn't quarantine in Emsisoft which are:
- Adware.Win32.Gaspacade (A) Medium risk
- Application.InstallAd (A) No risk
When I tried to quarantine these nothing happened so I thought that I'd try deleting them manually even though they don't seem to be high risk - I don't know if these are anything to worry about?
I had already installed Sysinternals as intructed by the tutorial and I was going to follow the instructions to delete them manually and then disable any programs that are not needed in start up (I've already disabled a few but only after checking the Startup Database on the site to make sure they weren't needed).
Even though I don't seem to have any high risk infections left I'd still like to know that I can start up in safe mode in case of problems in the future - in XP it was so much easier!
Thank you for any help you can give me,
