Hi katiescarletts, and welcome to Malware Removal

Before We Start, Some Notes On This Process
During this repair, we may need to remove some obsolete programs, and some which interfere with our tools.
We will install replacements later.
Please do not install or uninstall any programs, or scan with anything, unless I ask, until we are through cleaning.

Also, please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking.
I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However, it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between your computer software and the tools we'll use to clear you of infection, so I cannot guarantee the safety of your system.
It is not likely, but possible, that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate taking your computer to a repair shop.
Because of this, I advise you to backup any important personal files to some external media, like a USB flash or CD, before we start.
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, and choose Remove :

Adobe Reader 9.4.0
AVG PC Tuneup 2011
Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_15
Java(TM) 6 Update 7
Spybot - Search & Destroy

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
If the Spybot Uninstaller asks whether you want to remove all files and settings, answer YES. If it reports that it cannot remove all files, that's OK.
Run a Scan with OTL
  • Download OTL to your desktop.
  • You can also download OTL from HERE
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed to let it run uninterrupted.
  • When the window appears, In the Standard Registry box, click All.
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Copy the text from the code box below and paste it into the Custom Scans/Fixes box (under the aqua colored line)
    Code: Select all
    c:|Fun4IM;true;true;true; /FP
    c:|Bandoo;true;true;true; /FP
    c:|Searchqu;true;true;true; /FP
    c:|iLivid;true;true;true; /FP
  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location
      as OTL (should be on your desktop).
    • Make sure Notepad's Format, Wordwrap is unchecked.
    • Please copy the contents of each of these files, one at a time, and post them in your next reply.
  • Use separate replies if you wish.

Due to Lack of Response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
