Ok I'm starting to do that Windows repair now. Do I have to close out of everything while I'm doing this?

It is recommended yes.

Do you agree to the terms of malware removal?

After the repair completes, and you restart, check to see if windows firewall is working.

After that, follow these directions:


1.) Download security check below.

This will show me what security software you use and what the status is of them:

Downloading SecurityCheck

Open and run: SecurityCheck.exe
Follow the instructions inside the window that appears.

When done, a Notepad report opens automatically, called: checkup.txt

Please post the checkup.txt in your reply using the paperclip:

What do you mean? Which one are you referring to? All links I give you should be used, and only the ones I give you. Do not search google for the items.
