Download ATF Cleaner Welcome to the Frontpage - www.atribune.org
Click "Main" > check 'select all' (except 'Prefetch') this first time using it, then click "Empty Selected". Do the same for FireFox or Opera if you use either of those browsers.

Next, go to Control Panel > Internet Options.
On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files".
Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK.

Update Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u24 allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u24-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.

Please tell me how your computer is running.

There are a few sites that can tell you what ESET picked up on, and you can also just google it and see where that leads. Most importantly you need to continue following Jacee's advice because she is a A # 1 super computer - security specialist - with mad ninja like super hottie skills, and me not so much

Anymore, every site you click on has the potential of being hijacked
More and more people are becomming infected by clicking on so called safe web sites. This is why more folks " the common peeps " are turning to apps like sandboxie and such

Sounds like things are getting This is what you should have for FREE online scanners 1 Malwarebytes 2 Superantispyware 3 Emsisoft a-2
Keep 1 A/V of your choice, it wont matter which one, because when you download Sandboxie free this one app will keep you safe all by itself. Now get rid of Spybot," its not that good anymore " .
I would recommend rescanning with MSE and Malwarebytes if you cant download SAS or E a-2 to assist you at the moment. Good night, and good luck.
