Hi,

I recommend additional scanning with the ESET on-line scanner:

ESET :: Get a FREE Online Virus Scan

Questin about ESET

What is the diffference between Malware Bytes - Anti Malware and ESET. I have found that most online scan programs want somthing or leave some type of tool bar or other software that you do not need or want. Again this is just a question?

Hi,

ESET is well regarded here, and often recommended as an alternative scanner - soemtimes its best to scan with a handful of different programs just to make sure everything has been covered.

The online version is sometimes easier to access and run without the need for downloading and installing a trial version, and its free. It comes down to personal preference. For some people, depedning on location, its easier to perform the online scan.

Hi,

Based on that, I would say your system is clean. However, because Ainslot is a 'worm', you should also scan all removable devices (e.g. USB drives) and any other compuers on your network, if you have one.

I would suggest you use the Offline Windows Defender then get a good anti virus program for real time protection.
