Description of the trojan in the link below. Depends on how long the trojan was on your comp and what other malware it downloaded. I would want to make sure that ALL malware is gone. I would not rely totally on Windows Defender. If you want to, follow the directions below.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.


Post a Hijack This log in the Hijack This Forum by following the directions in the link below if the programs above have not removed ALL malware. DO NOT post the log in this forum.
