If somthing important was removed a program or the operating system would react.

The items that were removed should be in the Quarantine folder.

How to open the folder.

If key is important you can restore it.

If you decide to restore the key do as per the instructions on the site.

When restored.

Run the AdwCleaner tool and do just a Scan.
Post the log for my review.

Hi FrankerZi :welcome: to BleepingComputer,

 

 

Can you check if you have a folder called AdwCleaner at the root of the C:\ drive?

 

If you have open the folder and inside you should have the log file in a file called AdwCleaner[S#].txt (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report) open it and copy & paste it contents to your topic.

 

 

Is there any problems that led you to run a malware scan?

 

 

Edit: It seems I posted at the same time as Nasdaq :) please disregard my instructions, you are in good hands...
