I have read through this complete thread again as I do most of Jacee's working threads.
Good job to all of you.
circumvent you were very good at following instruction and that does help.

Just a reminder circumvent.
Their is no such thing as a safe torrent or P2P.
If you use them you will have another mess.
IObit anything is just another method of creating a mess.
I'm not a expert like Jacee but I have seen over and over again the problems these things create.
Jacee likes cleaning up messes like you had and I like watching her at work.

Hopefully you will be like me and watch Jacee do her work in other threads and not need her work again.
Believe me it's more enjoyable watch the work than needing the work of our experts.

Happy computing.

Damn youse Bill Gates for lying to me about bing! And well, I don't have any driver updates needed I think, since this is a Toshiba laptop, I usually use the site if I'm unsure of an update offered by MS...

The funny thing is this isn't my first rodeo, and am really paranoid about security and viruses/malware...it's Santa I tell you....already drafted my strongly worded letter...******* came in whilst all was quiet throughout my office and I had left and logged on and did this.

So from now on, aside from regular scans (I have mbam set for flash scans everyday and full scans once a week, so you can tell why I was surprised at the inception of this problem), I'll use TFC once a week and eset online scan once a month...

I just want to go through this week to make sure everything is in order before citing this as "resolved" and though I wouldn't wish it on anyone, hopefully all of the advice you and Andrew offered can help someone browsing the thread (and also bow profusely before your greatness oh Gurus)

Thanks Layback Bear, and yes, Jacee and Andrew really helped me out of the abyss...and I noted the torrent warning..didn't even contemplate reinstalling one...and yep, prevention is better than the cure (though Andrew and Jacee were right...I did have fun lol)...Have no idea why Iobit is touted so much, along with other system cleaners...but like G.I. Joe says (not the Rock/Tatum version), knowing is half the battle...Yo Joe!

And am now an avid fan of my Guru's Jacee and Andrew *bowing profusely (I'm not worthy)* been following their work already...

Lol..thanks guys ...I heed the instructions and guidance of those better informed and/or educated on a topic than myself, with a respectful question here and there... and I was lucky enough to be under expert guidance.

That and in my line of work, I do know the importance of following instructions (people have to follow mine in order for them to help me to help them)

Thanks for the compliments guys...oh, just as a thought, and because I don't want to knock any company or products (or endorse), but read this article and thought that you guys, if its relevant to others on the forum (and accurate) can share it in the appropriate section...kind of asking for a proof reading

(that and after reading the rules for posting, didn't want to take it upon myself to just post a url without some kind of approval).

Adobe and Java vulnerabilities leave Windows open for exploitation | The Download Blog - CNET Download.com

It's about adobe and java.

Maybe some opinions can be generated based on the article, in the appropriate section...seeing as malware got me, I've been rss'ing (is that even a term?) my usual news feeds to include on malware.

The first thing that comes to mind; does one need Adobe Java installed. Many don't need it; like me. If you don't have a absolute need for it remove it.
If you do need it so some program works you must check for security updates at least daily.
In the last 6 months or so Adobe Java has had many attacks.
Note: Adobe Java and Adobe Script are two different things.

Noted Layback Bear (and that is a bloody cool handle by the way ) I'm familiar with the script and java difference. Adobe Java has been under perpetual attack it seems.

But like I said, I stumbled upon the article and thought it useful for Gurus to read and see if it can help them to help us *bowing profusely* be proactive.

I'm the last person in the world that one would bowing profusely to.
Your are correct; the more people know about Adobe Java can do nothing but help.
