Windows 7: Not sure if I removed Trojan:JS/Redirector.HQ

Not sure if I removed Trojan:JS/Redirector.HQ

In an exces of stupidity,I've clicked a link that I received via mail.
MSE found out about the trojan and I've applied the suggested action(remove).
There's just one problem...MSE gave an error,not very sure what it was,and it gave 3 options,one of them being "get help",or something like that,and the trojan appears 2 times in the history.
I'll upload a pic.
I've done a local scan in app data/local,found nothing.
Now I'm running a complete system scan.
Should I use mbam and spybot,or is MSE enough?
And,could anyone describe what this does?
Thanks in advance.

Hi.

Trojan:JS/Redirector.HQ Descriptions:
Trojan:JS/Redirector.HQ is one of the latest infections reported in the computer world which can be described both as website redirect and browser hijacker. This virus is able to detect when you are opening a web page and pretend that it is not possible to show this page. The intruder will instead redirect you to some unknown and insecure web site which will be probably compromised or will include malicious links.
--------------

Download,install,update Malwarebytes

Download,install,update SUPERAntiSpyware

Boot in safe mode,run full scan with malwarebytes.

Run full scan with superantispyware.

Restart in normal mode.

Run full scan with malwarebytes.

Run full scan with superantispyware.

In addition to the good advice above, I would finish with a Hitman Pro scan too. Once infected, you can never use too many scanners.

Safe Mode

Use METHOD TWO.

Finish the scans and before restarting do the same and Untik the safe modeand you will start in normal mode.

Does it matter if I run the scans in normal mode,and then in safe mode?
Here's the mbam log.

The mbam log is with good results. Clean!


""Does it matter if I run the scans in normal mode,and then in safe mode?"" Its not forbidden.


Though is better to start from safe mode scan.(less processes\services,less active good or bad programs in the background)


So follow the above steps,finish and post back.

Well,mbam found nothing suspicious,IE9 seems to be ok,so I say MSE did a good job.
Thanks for helping.
