Good job!
Please ensure you have Java 7 Update 67 installed. If not, please repeat the step to update Java (instructions here).

Now for the good news!
 

All Clean!
Congratulations, your computer appears clean!   :)
I no longer see signs of malware on your computer, and feel satisfied that our work here is done. The steps below will remove the tools we have used, and reset any settings changed. I have also provided a list of resources and tools that you may find useful
 
My help will always be free. But if you are happy with the help provided, and would like to support my fight against malware and/or buy me a beer, please consider a donation. YSCcjW7.png
 

 

STEP 1
AFZxnZc.jpg DelFix

  • Please download DelFix and save the file to your Desktop.
  • Double-click DelFix.exe to run the programme.
  • Place a checkmark next to the following items:
    • Activate UAC
    • Remove disinfection tools
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore
    • Reset system settings
  • Click the Run button.

-- This will remove the specialised tools we used to disinfect your system. Any leftover logs, files, folders or tools remaining on your Desktop which were not removed can be deleted manually (right-click the file + delete).
 
--- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware will still be present on your computer. I recommend keeping this programme, updating and scanning with it once a week to maintain security on your computer. If you do not wish to keep this programme on your computer, you can uninstall it by pressing the Windows Key pdKOQKY.png + r on your keyboard at the same time, typing appwiz.cpl, clicking OK and searching for Malwarebytes.
 
======================================================
 
Below I have compiled a list of resources you may find useful. The articles document information on computer security, common infection vectors and how you can stay safe on the Internet.
