    Hi ghdeaver and welcome to MalwareTips! :)

    I'm Fiery and I would gladly assist you in removing the malware on your computer.

    Before we start:
    • Note that the removal process is not immediate. Depending on the severity of your infection, it could take a long time.
    • Malware removal can be dangerous. I cannot guarantee the safety of your system as malware can be unpredictable. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system. Therefore, I would advise you to backup all your important files before we start.
    • Please be patient and stay with me until I give you the green lights and inform you that your PC is clean.
    • Some tools may be flagged by your antivirus as harmful. Rest assure that ALL the tools we use are safe, the detections are false positives.
    • The absence of symptoms does not mean your PC is fully disinfected.
    • If you are unclear about the instructions, please stop and ask. Following the steps in the order that I post them in is vital.
    • Lastly, if you have requested help on other sites, that will delay and hinder the removal process. Please only stick to one site.
