    MSERT

    What are the 243 infected files found while scanning? When MSERT finishes, it says; The scan completed successfully and no viruses, spyware, and other potentially unwanted software were detected.

    Hi Sam,

    I am Dave, I will help you with this.

    Where did you see an indication that MSERT found infected files, was that while the scan was running, and at the end of the scan did it indicate it found malware or did it indicate nothing was found?

    MSERT

    Hello All, thanks for your responses.

    I downloaded the MSERT from Microsoft support and there's

    only 3 options to scan. Quick scan, Full scan and Quick scan with

    a custom file addition. The first Quick scan showed 232 infections

    while scanning as I stated. Well I ran a full scan and found 243 while

    scanning. It seems to be finding the Pups in each scan but DOESN'T

    remove them.?

    At the root of my problem is. I was hacked last week and want to be sure

    I'm clean as possible. Does it sound like MSERT has been helpful? I've locked

    down and changed the necessary items.

    What's a needed next step? much thanks SK.
