Kate, these need updated !!

 

Adobe Flash Player up date !!

Make sure you uncheck any boxes that want you to install tool bars or anything other than Java
 

 

 

 

============================

 

 

Update Adobe Reader

  • Please uninstall unless you already have Adobe Reader XXX XXX xxx before installing the latest version by going to Start > Control Panel and double clicking on Add/Remove Programs. Locate Adobe Reader XX xxx xx and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it.
  • Click here to download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

    If you are using other browsers, it will prompt you to save a file. Save this file to your desktop and run it to install the latest version of Adobe Reader.

Kate try update on the Internet Explorer and see if that helps !!

 

 
Internet Explorer out of date

Your version of Internet Explorer is outdated.

    Please download IE 10 from http://windows.micro...dwide-languages
    Save it to your desktop.
    Double click on the file on your desktop to start the installation process.
    Reboot
 

Also i would like for you to try Firefox as a browser ! It's what i use all the time ! I keep Internet explorer just for anything i may need it for !

 

 

=================================

 

 

 
Congratulation you are clean !!!

Any of the logs that you created for use in the forums or remaining tools that have not yet been removed can be deleted so they aren't cluttering up your desktop.

This is my standard "All Clean Speech." You may have some already installed, these are just recommendations !

Here are some tips to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:

Here are some tips to reduce the potential for spyware/malware infection in the future:
 
1. Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:

    From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click onOptions.
    Click once on theSecurity tab
    Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    Click once on the Custom Level button.
    Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
    Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
    Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
    Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
    When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

2. FireFox  If you use Firefox, I recommend installing the following add-ons to help make your Firefox browser more secure.
NoScript

adblock plus

 
3. Use and update an anti-virus software - I can not overemphasize the need for you to use and update your anti-virus application on a regular basis.  With the ever increasing number of new variants of malware arriving on the scene daily, you become very susceptible to an attack without updated protection.
 
4. Firewall Using a third-party firewall will allow you to give/deny access for applications that want to go online. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.   **There are firewalls that could be downloaded and used but I would personally only recommend using one of the following below:
Online Armor Free
Agnitum Outpost Firewall Free
Comodo Firewall Free
 
5. Make sure you keep your Windows OS current. And regularly to download and install any critical updates and service packs. Windows Vista/7 users can open the Start menu > All Programs > Windows Update > Check for Updates (in left hand task pane) to update these systems.  Without these you are leaving the back door open.
 
6.WOT(Web of Trust) As "Googling" is such an integral part of internet life, this free browser add on warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware or send spam. It is especially helpful when browsing or searching in unfamiliar territory. WOT's color-coded icons show you ratings for 21 million websites, helping you avoid the dangerous sites.  WOT has an add-on available for Firefox, Internet Explorer as well as Google Chrome.
 
7. Finally, I strongly recommend that you read Miekiemoes' great advice How to prevent malware .

 
Let me know how it's running ?
Any problems ?
It may run a tad slow until a few normal re-boots, but according to all logs you are clean !!

Thanks
