Uninstall adobe dreamweaver cs5 ----> keygen.vtm. This indicates that you have a 'cracked/pirated' copy of the program.

This process is so SLOW.

Strange. In fact I do not have a cracked copy - I have a legit copy which I purchased on online 23-08-2010. I have uninstalled DW CS5 as presumably I can easily re-install. I have manually deleted the "Dreamweaver CS5" directory too.

Please can you give me multiple tasks.

Now - what next?

Totally uninstall Spybot... while it's an ok program, it does try to interfere with what we're trying to help you do.

See the 'total' uninstall, How to uninstall? | Spybot You'll have to unhide 'hidden' files and folders.
Boot into safe mode and delete the folder...reboot.

To speed things up please can you give me as many things as possible to do at once in each communication.

Done. Now what?

Are you still showing the WebCake 3.0 infection?

No - Web Cake itself seems to have disappeared.
And scanning with BitDefender didnt find anything.

I wasnt not sure what else to check with so I re-installed SpyHunter 4 which say I have 3 threats:
- DoubleClick : C {DoubleClick} id.PH3EVJ3E.txt
- Media: C {Media} svid.1YHX45GY.txt
- Qksrv: C {Qksrv} S.XDXRRS1N.txt
However they are demanding money to remove the threats so given that I dont trust them I certainly have not paid.

None of those 'so called' threats show up in a search with Google. "Scare" tactic to get you to buy the product

Uninstall SpyHunter and don't even think of using it again!!

Done

Any final scans I should run?

Out of interest, what Antivirus software do you use and why?

Fwiw, I am using BidDefender because although it seemed slightly expensive it got good reviews - esp for being fast/usable. I am on a trial version. I don't like it because it seems very un-responsive. Often it can take a number of seconds for anything to appear to happen when you click on things. Also little or no feedback when it's doing an update..

I want something reasonably priced that doesn't slow my PC down too much and which has a fairly user-friendly/responsive interface. The only thing I'd want to customize would be the frequency of updates and scans (e.g. every night at 3AM).

Also should I have something more than mere "Antivirus" software? I mean what about the firewall?

What version of Bitdefender are you using? If you have the "Internet Security" version, it comes with a two-way firewall. You won't need any other FW, such a Windows built in one. You can disable Windows FW in Services.

I'm running Avira Internet Security on 3 machines. I beta tested Microsoft Security Essentials, and it was good!

I also have Malwarebytes' (not running in realtime) and SpywareBlaster...kept updated.

Thanks. Yes I'm currently using the "Internet Security" version of BitDefender. I am told it is very good at catching the nasties, but it doesnt seem to be very helpful in helping strip out (i.e. individually probably delete) email attachments in .PST archive files that need passwords...

Unfortunately MSE didnt get well reviewed in the recent reviews I saw and I have ditched it for now.
I'll have a look at SpywareBlaster.
