bai,
A few tips for your safety going forward:
---------------------------------------------
  • Avoid installing Toolbars whenever possible. Most are for the benefit of the purveyor, not you.

  • Don't EVER accept an offer to fix your Viruses, infections, etc., if you get a popup and are asked to do so.
    Just close your browser immediately. If you can't get anything to close, you can always press the start button for 5 seconds
    Legitimate Antivirus companies may offer you an upgrade, but will not solicit new business via popups.
    Any new "antivirus" presented to you will be a fake, and will infect your machine.

  • Don't use File Sharing programs (called Peer-to-Peer or P2P) like BitComet, uTorrent, Bittorrent, Azureus, BitLord, Vuze etc.
    The shared files are one of the prime sources of PC-destroying infections.
    Criminals use "free" music and video files as a stealthy method of distributing their trash and stealing account information from you.
    The File sharing P2P programs are commonly set so they can bypass your normal security protections.

  • Do not download or use any Registry Cleaner, Registry Booster, Registry Optimizer, or Boot Optimizer.

  • Don't allow anyone else's USB flash drive to be used on your machine. If you must, make sure the flash has been scanned with an Antivirus first.
    Take each one of your own flash drives, go to the main directory and create a NEW folder on it named autorun.inf
    If there is already a file on the flash with that name, erase it first.
    This will prevent any file of that name from being created and running automatically.

  • Restrict your protection programs to ONE Antivirus and ONE Anti-spyware .
    Either Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast are OK free applications as your ONE Antivirus.
    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is good as your ONE Anti-Spyware application. Update and Scan with it every week or so, if you use the free one. The Quick Scan is fine.

  • Make sure your Windows Firewall and Automatic Updates are both turned ON.

Good Luck,
