Further instruction for cleaning up computer

Hi there fellow SF folks. I'm just done cleaning up my Dad's computer of Adware and Crapware and all of that stuff. I used the following tools:

- AdwCleaner
- JRT
- RogueKiller
- MBAM
- Revo Uninstaller
- CCleaner


I guess this should be clean now but I wanted to know if there is anything further to do. Any advice?

Hitman Pro is a good program too.
Same with SuperAntispyware.

When cleaning a computer the 4 main I use are HitmanPro, MalwareBytes, ComboFix and SuperAnitspyware.

I wouldn't recommend ComboFix, can render your computer as a football unless used in trained hands.

I also don't recommend using ComboFix unless under the direction of a expert.

You're welcome. I'm sure other's have suggestions but how is it running?

For the combofix mention I think this sticky thread will enlighten,

Do not use Combofix on your own!!

Also... Uninstall SuperAntispyware when your finished running it. It leaves a service running all the time for some reason.

SAS updates when you run it. I still see no need for a service running when IT isn't.
