Internet Compromised

The Microsoft Security Essentials is removed from my computer now. Should I reinstall this? I'm a little concerned since I got this problem under their protection. Is Malwarebytes also a security product or is it to use in conjunction with a security product?

 

I suggest you purchase the Pro version of Malwarebytes and use it along with AVAST.

If you don't want to purchase MB Pro, I would reinstall MSE and use that.

----------------------------------------------

Lets check your computers security before you go and we have a little cleanup to do also:

Download Security Check by screen317 from HERE or HERE.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt.
  • Please Post the contents of that document.
  • Do Not Attach It!!!

Out dated programs on the system are vulnerable to malware.
Please update or uninstall them:


-------------------------------------------

Please uninstall any Java listed in your add/remove programs

Java™ 6 Update 22
Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_03


Java version out of Date! <-------Download and install the latest version (Version 25) from Here
Uncheck the box to install the Ask toolbar!!! and any other free "stuff".

--------------------------------------------

Adobe Reader 8 Adobe Reader out of Date! <---please check for an update if available or uninstall and download and install Foxit Reader which is less vulnerable to malware and much better than Adobe. Don't install any toolbars that may come with it (ASK Toolbar).

----------------------

Mozilla Firefox (1.5.0 Firefox out of Date! <---please check for an update if available

---------------------------

Google Chrome 28.0.1500.71 <-----OLD
Google Chrome 28.0.1500.72 <-----OK

You have old versions of Google Chrome on the system.
Please download and run OldChromeRemover.
@Windows Vista/Windows 7-8 users must use “Run As Administrator.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A little clean up to do....

Please Uninstall ComboFix: (if you used it)

Press the Windows logo key + R to bring up the "run box"

Copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /uninstall

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /

cf2.jpg

Then hit enter.
This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and clears System Restore cache and create new Restore point

(If that doesn't work.....you can simply rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe and double click it to complete the uninstall or download and run the uninstaller)

---------------------------------

If you used DeFogger to disable your CD Emulation drivers, please re-enable them.

-------------------------------

Please download OTC to your desktop.
http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTC.exe

Double-click OTC to run it. (Vista and up users, please right click on OTC and select "Run as an Administrator")
Click on the CleanUp! button and follow the prompts.
(If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTC attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.)
You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process, choose Yes.
After the reboot all the tools we used should be gone.
Note: Some more recently created tools may not yet be removed by OTC. Feel free to manually delete any tools it leaves behind.

Any other programs or logs you can manually delete.
IE: RogueKiller.exe, RKreport.txt, RK_Quarantine folder, C:\FRST, MBAR, etc....AdwCleaner > just run the program and click uninstall.

-------------------------------

Any questions...please post back.

I was able to uninstall and reinstall Java.  Now I'm working on Adobe.  When I click Adobe from my "All Programs" list, it opens but another window opens advising Beyond Adobe Reader.  It then says "Beyond Adobe Reader could not establish an Internet connection.  Please try again."  It displays a button to "Click here to open Beyond Adobe Reader now."

 

Before I go any further, is this the same as Adobe Reader?  I was wondering if I should uninstall all the adobe stuff on my computer and reinstall.
