My niece used my laptop this morning and attempted to download a DVD ripper from DVDshrinker.org.  Apparently, this software is defunct and she ended up downloading something that was called FileOpener (I think that's what it was called.) and a host of other malware.  My search engine was hijacked to Vosteran.  Norton logs show that something called Suspicious Cloud 9 was prevented from installing.  


I've run Malwarebytes (the free version, if that makes a difference) and 17 items were identified and removed (most appeared to be related to Vosteran in some way).  I also ran Norton and it only found a handful of tracking cookies. My computer seems to run a little slower now, but that may be my paranoia.  As I don't know everything she clicked and or what she may have given permission to, I worry that something remains.  I've attached the logs for your review and I appreciate any help or advice that you can give.  Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.  Thank you so much!

Hi there,
my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.

Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.

  • First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.
  • Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.
  • If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.
  • Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.
  • Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
  • Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.
  • My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.
  • Important: To help me reviewing your logs, please post them in code boxes. You can create them by clicking on the <>-symbol on top of the reply window.
