    Yeah Steve, we all seem to agree on Slimware , Think Peter is going to remove it now.

    I think it might be a good idea for him to have the paid version of MBAM to help prevent these PUP's ?

    I think you may need to do some more scans. But, I think it would be wise to let @simrick or someone who is good at it to look at these results first. What is in these scans may determine what scans are needed next.

    Hi guys!
    Optimizer Pro, Mindspark, SmileyWeLove, Driver Updater, SlimWare - all PUPs; not worth a reinstall IMO. A lot of PUPs found in that log, but all repeats. Mindspark is a PITA too.

    The OP has installed MBAM with the free trial, so he currently has active protection. I see Trend Micro is the AV. (Not the best, in my experience, but perhaps they have gotten better with time...)

    I would delete everything that was found by MBAM, and then run ADWCleaner. Delete everything it finds as well.

    One question: Did the OP enable Rootkit before running the scan, and was it a custom scan to check the entire HDD (plus any connected external drives)? If not, it needs to be run again - these PUPs appear to be too-well embedded in the system, and so, have been on there for quite a while. Then, Ccleaner on the registry, check the startup items listed in Ccleaner for the browsers and Windows, and I would finish with an ESET Online Scan, and then everything should be good.

    All logs need to be posted; if anything malicious is found, further evaluation may be necessary (including a clean install, but at this point I don't see the necessity).

    Sorry for the long set of instructions, but I am about to log off for the night.

    Petra9999 do you do regular backups and images to an external hard drive. That is something everyone should do on a regular basis. It can save you in more ways than one.
