Alright, thanks; I'll do a backup (I will need an external hard drive/disk for it right?) and I'll delete it when I can.
Also, I tried to install the drivers through Nvidia GeForce and this happenned (stills not beign the last version of the Drivers, I know), I selected a clean installation and it installed something definetly, as now I have less space on my hard drive.
So, Chrome now only shows six thumbnails instead of eight, I've readed that it's a bug with Chrome 44, is that true?
I did a scan with AdwCleaner, and how did this happen? I haven't went to Softonic's website and I haven't downloaded anything (I updated RKill trough rkill.com and CCleaner through piriform only), I checked his twitter for some reason, can Softonic do this trough Twitter?

The NVIDIA drivers and applications seem to be correctly installed, now.

It's true. See Issue 495968.

I guess Chrome 44 include Softonic Search Form, which was removed by AdwCleaner.

I'll install the newest Drivers from the page at some point, I want to leave it the last.
Now it shows the eight thumbnails again for some reason.
And good job Google, good job adding that as a search provider.
While I was doing a scan with RogueKiller I readed something about licensing changed and could affect machine detections or something like that, what does that mean?.

Hi Heantrad,

We indeed change the license scheme. Now, with a personal license, you are able to register up to 5 machines instead of 3.
For more information, please read : RogueKiller Premium.

Regards.

But if you use the free version nothing changes right?
Also, while asking for help on the MBAB forums they told me that full scans can put wear and tear on my hardrive, is that true?, because if it is I don't know how it hasn't stop working by now (I'm doing at least two or three full scans with SAS! a day).

That's true. Conducting extensive scan daily may prematurely wear your HHD.

Well, it's probably really late, I probably alredy wear it, it's been like a month.
Anyways, I'll stop doing that since now.
So, the guy at the MBAM forums told me that there's some errors with Windows search and maybe a PUP, I'll paste the solution he gave me.
Please try doing a full disk check and running this Search Index fix and see if that helps.

Please visit the following site and run the fixit tool from Microsoft
Fix Windows Desktop Search when it crashes or not showing results (this is the link http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_search)

Then click on START and type in CMD.EXE and when it shows on the menu right click and choose "Run as administrator" and type the following.

CHKDSK C: /R

Then press the Y key to run after a restart and restart the computer.

I'll attach the logs that I send to him.
The PUM seems to be FXWebPlayer.
So, I did a MBAM full scan (a full scan not threat scan as I did always) and it detected this, I'll leave the log here (I'll also send it to the guy who is helping me at the MBAM forum, but you can't edit posts there, so I'll need to wait until he replies me).

So, the guys at the MBAM are still helping me, they're helping me deleting the PUPs that got detected by MBAM, after that there's onlt left the Program Files thing and the drivers.
Also, yesterday, while I downloaded a program that they told me to (Junkware Removal Tool), I saw a strange file in the download folder, it was a .dll file and Microsoft Security Essentials said it was safe, I can't remember the name right now, as I deleted it.
The thing is that it was downloaded at the same time that the program and some days ago, I needed to translate something and by mistake I entered Babylon's translation page (seems that I'm never going to learn the lesson...), I did the typical scans and they didn't detect anything.
Could it be related, or Babylon only gives you his virus if you download anything from his page?

Hi Heantrad,

Since you didn't download anything from Babylon website, you are safe.

Alright, the guy at the MBAM forum told me to not download, install/unistall programs or do scans unless he tells me to, so, I think that for now I'm done in here.
When I finish in there I will come back here and finish the thing that are left.
Thanks a lot for helping me with all the problems that I've had with the PC.

Hey, something strange happened.
For no reason all webpages that I had in favorites in Chrome have totally dissapeared, the rest stills the same.
Also, for some reason Skype keeps changing itself to ausent, I do not have the change to ausent after X time option marked.
Alright, I restored the bookmarks to an older version (from two days ago), I'll do a backup right now, do you have any idea of why has this happen?
Could it be because the lights went off while I was using the PC?, it's not the first time it happens and for some reason it keeps happening and happening without any advice before it happens, it also made disapear the desktop background, it reappeared after a restart.

Hi Heantrad,

That's really strange behaviour.
I suggest you to report thoses things to Ron Lewis, at Malwarebytes forum. He should be more suited than me in troubleshooting them since you are currently following a disinfection process there.

Regards.
