  14. I am currently in training at Malware Removal University. Each set of instructions that I provide will be reviewed by a faculty member before being posted to this thread. This process may add a small amount of time to my replies. On the positive side you will have two people working together to resolve your malware issues.
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 the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection. I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.
