My daughter's computer (running Windows 7) has been infected by a tidynetwork malware...I did a malwarebytes scan and found several pup.tidynetwork files detected. Malwarebytes deleted all of them. But afterwards I found that a tidynetworks.com entry was still listed as a startup item in her system configuration. I've unchecked it, to keep it from loading at startup, but it has me concerned that Malwarebytes didn't remove everything.

Are there further steps I can take to make sure that all tidynetworks files have been removed from her computer?
