I had a topic here where boopme has been helping me out.https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/644948/malwarebytes-found-potentially-unwanted-modification-what-else-do-need-to-do/page-2 


I clicked on a phising email purporting to be from twitter and am worried about all sorts of infections as a result. A user on another forum has advised that I use FRST with this fix:

Before I run it and post the log would you knowledegable folks agree with this fix as appropriate?


I have closed the Twitter account but something is amiss. Yesterday I noticed that Internet Explorer had opened a wondow and done a Bing search on holidays in Taiwan or something - I never use Explorer!


Any advice gratefully received, I am not sure I trust the other forum's (not a Bleeping Computer one's) experts!  :devil:  :guitar:

No qualified Malware Response Team member here at Bleeping Computer is going to assess a FRST fix "as appropriate" without having analyzed your FRST logs.
We strongly discourage people from posting the same problem(s) in multiple Forums.  In fact, we normally close such topics to avoid confusion.  "Too many cooks in the kitchen!" :)
You don't state what Forum you posted in, nor the name of the Malware Helper assisting you.  If you want help here, you will have to conclude that topic on the other Forum, and open a new topic here.  You should follow the instructions posted here, including the posting of fresh FRST logs, before opening your new topic here.
To avoid any unnecessary duplication of effort and avoid confusion, I am concluding this topic.
Thank you and have a great day.
