Things seems to be running smoothly smoothly now, are we all set now?
Also, in your professional opinion, what is the likelihood that in the 24-48 hours of exposure that I had, data/info was actually stolen from me?
Thanks.

_____________________________________
That's just to hard to say. I will say it's very well worth doing all the preventive advise I gave you in the beginning. Identity theft is a very real thing these days. I do have a family member that lost a large sum of money due to a back door Trojan. I am not trying to scare you into anything. Just letting you know it is real.

Here comes the finale .




Great news ! Image

Your log now appears to be clean.

Lets do a few things to tidy up.
Please do these in the order I suggest!

Navigate to and delete this folder.
C:\SDFix


_________________________________
Go to start > run and copy and paste this in the field:

ComboFix /u

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /
Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the
system/hidden files and resets System Restore again in case you need it we don't put back all you just took out..



Please let me know all this went OK.

A Hosts file is a plain text file which prevents your computer from connecting to malware and spyware sites by redirecting the connection request to 127.0.0.1, which is your local address. If you use a proxy server, or if you are on AOL, be sure to read the special instructions.
You can download the MVPS Hosts File and see a HOSTS file tutorial here :
This website also contains useful tips, and links to other resources and utilities.
