potentially downloaded spyware

Hi all, i was having a missing msinet.ocx file so i googled the problem and followed this guys solution.

After downloading the file and putting it in my syswow64 and system 32 folders, the problem didnt get fixed and after reading the comments the last guy said that the download link was spyware. So far all ive done is run malwarebytes and remove two threats that appeared to be related and removed the file from both folders, What else should i do?

oh yah i did a dumb thing and installed it to into my syswow64 folder...

Download DDS from one of these links:
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <--- will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post.
The scan will instruct you to post Attach.txt as an attachment.

  5. Click the button.
  6. Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  7. Check
  8. Push the Start button.
  9. ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.

No malwarebytes is an on demand scanner, AVAST! or AVG for example keep you secure to an extent over the course of the average day, Id suggest running these

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R#].txt) will open in Notepad for review (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

Ok, looking at that, i'd recommend downloading and using AVAST AVAST 2014 | Download Free Antivirus Software for Virus Protection

Also update your flash player as i have seen virus's appear from old non updated versions.
Internet explorer im assuming isnt your daily browser so thats not an issue.

I now ask you to run the three other programs suggested, thanks
