Moved from Win 7 to Am I Infected

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan:[/b]
  • It is recommended to turn off your antivirus program. Click on the E5rfZI9.png button to see which antivirus is currently enabled:

  • Turn off your antivirus program. See here how to do this.
  • Check the option beside: Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications.
  • Now click on Advanced Settings and make sure that the option Clean threats automatically is NOT checked, and select the following:
Enable detection of potentially unsafe applications
Enable detection of suspicious applications
Scan archives
Enable Anti-Stealth Technology
  • Click on the Change button and select only Operating memory, Autostart locations and drive C:\ to be scanned.

  • Push the dtoGjAL.png button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.

  • When the scan completes a list of found threats will open automatically (if any malicious files are found).

  • Click the Clean button
  • Check the box beside RHzfZB1.png to uninstall the application when closed.

Sorry to say bud but malware/virus removals are not "simple" if you want help I would suggest following the steps provided.

I was going simple, one tool at a time. Perhaps reformatting is simpler for you?
