Regarding computer is locked

Hi, im using Win 7 32bit and never connected my pc to net.Yesterday, i connected to my aunt wifi and started IE and the homepage load fine but when i entered google url i got a message that my pc is locked from accessing google and i should complete a survey.So i googled using my aunt laptop about that message and found that its a malware so i followed the instruction on that particular website.I booted in safe mode and found 3 of them 'PUM.RightClick , PUM.Hijack.CMD, PUM.Hijack.Run' and i send them to quarantine.A few minutes ago i mistakenly delete them in normal mode and after restarting i can't right click anything except taskbar.Oh, i forgot to mention that i use Malwarebyte Anti Malware.

You should run system file checker.

Here is the tutorial.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If the problem continues, you should see if it works properly in safe mode.

Safe Mode

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware produces a report that is found under the Logs tab.
It will give us something to work with by showing which files were involved, etc.

Can you use the keyboard to highlite the report where the malware was found by pressing Ctrl and A
Then use Ctrl and C to copy the highlighted text.
To paste the selected text, press Ctrl and V

Please provide the MBAM log in your reply.

Also, please download SystemLook from the following link:
32-bit System:
Save the file to the Desktop
  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following quote box into the open textfield (Do not copy the word 'Quote':
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions|NoBrowserContextMenu
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a Notepad window opens with the results of the scan.
    Please post the SystemLook.txt in your reply.

Can you right-click now?

Getting the same result does not necessarily mean you are clean.
