Hi rchill :flower: ,

How is the computer running? Any problems?

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Update Java Runtime

You are using an old version of Java. Sun's Java is sometimes updated in order to eliminate the exploitation of vulnerabilities in an existing version. For this reason, it's extremely important that you keep the program up to date, and also remove the older more vulnerable versions from your system. The most current version of Sun Java is: Java Runtime Environment Version 6 Update 11.
  • Go to Java Site
  • Click to Download Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 11
  • In Platform box choose Windows.
  • Check the box to Accept License Agreement and click Continue.
  • Click on Windows Offline Installation, click on the link under it which says "jre-6u11-windows-i586-p.exe" and save the downloaded file to your desktop.
  • Go to Start => Control Panel => Add or Remove Programs
  • Uninstall all old versions of Java (Java 3 Runtime Environment, JRE or JSE)
  • Install the new version by running the newly-downloaded file with the java icon which will be at your desktop, and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Reboot your computer

Please uninstall all tools used in cleaning

To remove all OTScanIt and the files and folders it created do the following:
Start OTScanIt
Click the CleanUp button
    o OTScanIt will download a small file from the Internet. If a security program or firewall warns you of this allow it to download.
    o OTScanIt will delete the files/folders it created and then ask you to reboot so it can remove itself. Click Yes


Uninstall GooredFix
Click Start >> Run and then copy/paste the following into the box and hit Enter:
"%userprofile%\Desktop\GooredFix.exe" /uninstall

If any of your security programs query a new Registry/AutoStart value being added please allow the changes.

Please delete FileFind .zip and the Filefind folder and DDS from your desktop, you can do the by right clicking and selecting delete


Disable and Enable System Restore – Since you are using Windows XP then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

Turn off System Restore.
Click Start, then right-click My Computer
Click Properties
Click the System Restore tab
Check Turn off System Restore
Click Apply, and then click OK

Reboot.

Turn on System Restore.
Click Start, then right-click My Computer
Click Properties
Click the System Restore tab
Uncheck Turn off System Restore
Click Apply, and then click OK
NOTE: only do this ONCE, NOT on a regular basis!


Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperative that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

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 on Options.
  • Click once on the Security 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 Initialise 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.


Happy Safe Surfing :flower:
