Hi all. Bought an new laptop, ran a few scans to clean it up of any junk it may have been preinstalled with.

MWB found nothing

 

AVAST! (free) found nothing untoward.

AdwCleaner found a PUP which was from Ask Jeeves, now removed. (Log saved if anyone wants it.)

An ESET scan found another PUP which I couldn't identify, WinD32 it was called. I removed it using the program, but what else would you advise I run? (I saved the log just in case someone wants to see it

Thank you for reading.

Welcome aboard p22002758.gif

 

Since this is a new laptop you'll always find some crapware preinstalled.

 

You did fine with running tools you ran and you should be good to go :)
