Copy the following text exactly as shown into a new instance of Notepad, and save it as flush.bat on your desktop.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0


Close any open applications. Right-click on flush.bat and choose to Run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself.

Now download TFC.exe (Temporary File Cleaner) to your desktop, from this location:
TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums

Ensure all applications are closed. Right-click on TFC.exe and choose to Run as Administrator.
Click Start to run TFC - note:
  • do not interrupt it! Let it finish completely.
  • if TFC prompts you to reboot, then do so immediately.
  • once finished, if you were not prompted to reboot, reboot anyway

Once rebooted, perform an online scan using the ESET online scanner:
ESET Online Virus Scanner | ESET

Report back on anything it finds.
