Hi Heantrad,

The MBAM log is clean and SAS only detected tracking cookies.

Also, I don't use Internet Explorer, so, I don't know why it's stored in that folder (if I'm not wrong, only cookies from IE should be placed there), maybe it's related that CCleaner detects temporal files and other stuff from IE too, but as before, I don't use IE
Some applications use IE engine to retrive ads. So, tracking cookies, could be present in that folder even if you don't use Internet Explorer.

How is the computer running ?

Regards.
It's running good for now, I deleted the Windows.old folder too and I gained like 20 GB.
Now I only need to find a way to delete the old Program Files.
Also, I compared the number of items MBAB scaned with a 20 minuted scan log I had and it scaned the same amount, so it's probably okay?

Hi Heantrad,

Yes, it's okay.
You can use the Disk Cleanup utility to delete previous OS directories.

Regards.

I have a doubt, is there any way to know if Microsoft Security Essentials is working properly?, with working properly I mean detecting potentials treads and blocking them.

Hi Heantrad,

If Microsoft Security Essentials is not running properly, Windows Security Center will report it.

Regards.

A problem I've seen today is that the Nvidia control panel doesn't show all the options it should (I remember that it showed a lot more options).
Could it be related with a problem I had with an adware (that I removed time ago with MBAB or SAS!, I don't remember exactly) that said it was a Nvidia sound driver, or it's normal that this happens?
Also, is there any solutions?
I'll attach an image that shows the options that appears.

Hi Heantrad,

I really doubt your problem to be malware related.
Hovewer, you are running Nvidia drivers version 341.74 while latest version is 353.62. Updating them may solve the issue.

Regards.

This is the oficial page from Nvidia to download the latest drivers right?

The last update of AdwCleaner let's you reset your Proxy server and the winshock.
Can you tell me what is the winshock and what does it do?
I have a windows restauration point from yesterday if I messed something up and that can solve it (because I didn't unchecked those two options, who are checked by default).

Hi Heantrad,

Winsock is an software interface which allow how Windows to access network services based on TCP/IP.
You should not "reset" it unless you experiment network connection problem.

If you are able to access Internet, there is no need to perform a restauration.

I'm able to acces Internet (as I'm writing this on the computer), however, I think it happen the same as when I used the fix option in the Farbar aplication (it logged me out of some accounts automaticaly).
However, I see another option about the TCP/IP settings, I supose it's different, but I'll atach a screenshot with the options.

Winsock and websites authentification have nothing to do with each other. ;)

There is indeed a difference between the Winsock and TCP/IP. The first one is a Sockets API, the second one is a network stack.
If you need more information about AdwCleaner, I suggest you to contact its developer, Xplode, on ToolsLib.

Regards.

Oh, okay, I'm just throwing ideas without much sense, as maybe some of them are right, but however.
Also, AdwCleaner detected this after entering (and almost downloading something from it. thanks to safeweb Norton) Solvusoft (didn't know it was malicious until a pair of days ago) it was removed succefully, any idead of what could it be?
