Greetings.

ESET is very thorough and worth the wait.

That looks fantastic. Do you have any remaining questions or issues before I post some tool cleanup instructions and information for you to consider?

Just got one question.
Would you suggest a free antivirus that would work out better for me, than MSE? Because I've had it enabled, and I feel like a good antivirus would prevent at least most of the infections from doing damage on my PC...

Greetings.

No one program can guarantee you won't get infected. I have several computers and I run either Windows Defender or Avast Free but there are numerous other name brand antivirus programs available. If you work through the Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe and secure on the Internet link below that will help you understand how to minimize the risks of being online.

Now that your computer is running well it is my great pleasure to proclaim to you the Good News!

===================================================

Your machine appears to be clean and we will now remove the tools used and logs created during our steps. Please do this.

Yeah but these viruses were pretty generic - installing/replacing browsers with malicious versions is an old trick, shouldn't all anti-viruses detect such behavior? Anyway, I think I'll try something else, MSE disappointed me with its effectiveness...

I will give all those articles a good read just for the sake of it, although practices like backups aren't necessarily new to me. Thank you a lot for helping me clean up the mess my mistake has caused!
