In my sig are links to MalwareBytes and Super AntiSpyware, download each, update and run full scan, separately with each. Make sure you UNcheck Start 30 day trial on MBAM.
If you have paid Norton stay with it, unless it is only the AV, then get a suite with AV and firewall.
Thanks for the feedback.
Yes, I meant MS Security Essentials.
Today I bought Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and tried to install it but the installation failed after it asked for removal of MSE.
I tried Kaspersky Virus removal tool as recommended by Kaspersky but it didn't find any threats.
Further more, I downloaded Kaspersky Rescue Disk to a bootable flash memory and run a scan that could only find 23 items in SEP's Quarantine folder, I deleted all of them.
I still can't install KIS 2013 and I have contacted KIS support for that but they didn't reply yet.
I had to reinstall MSE again.
One last thing, I downloaded a copy of windows 7 and while burning it to a flash memory, it gave me an error before it finishes .
I can't remember the exact error phrase but it was a problem making or verifying the boot.ini file.
I tried that on a different laptop, any hints ?
