Hi wv2sc,

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

Remove GMER

Delete the GMER icon from your desktop.

Clear restore points

  • Double-click OTL.exe (Right click and choose "Run as administrator" in Vista/Win7).
  • Copy and Paste the following code into the Image textbox. Do not include the word Code
    Code: Select all
    :commands
    [clearallrestorepoints] 
    
  • Then click the Run Fix button at the top.
  • Click Image.
  • OTL may ask to reboot the machine. Please do so if asked.


Clean up with OTL

  • Double-click OTL.exe to start the program. This will remove all the tools we used to clean your pc.
  • Close all other programs apart from OTL as this step will require a reboot
  • On the OTL main screen, press the CleanUp! button
  • Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.


Update your AntiVirus Software and keep your other programs up-to-date
Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
Secunia Software Inspector
F-secure Health Check

Security Updates for Windows, Internet Explorer & Microsoft Office
Whenever a security problem in its software is found, Microsoft will usually create a patch so that after the patch is installed, attackers can't use the vulnerability to install malicious software on your PC. Keeping up with these patches will help to prevent malicious software being installed on your PC. Ensure you are registered for Windows updates via Start > right-click on My Computer > Properties > Automatic Updates tab or visit the Microsoft Update site on a regular basis.

Now make sure Windows 7 is updated to Service Pack 1 and all security updates are applied.

Happy surfing and stay clean!
