    After reviewing your HJT log, i recommend you need to do the following

    1. Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and save it to a convenient location.

    2. Double click on "mbam-setup.exe" to install it.

    3. Before clicking the Finish button, make sure that these 2 boxes are checked (ticked):
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

    4. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware will now check for updates. If your firewall prompts, please allow it.
    If you can't update it, select the Update tab. Under Update Mirror, select one of the websites and click on Check for Updates.

    5. Select the Scanner tab. Click on Perform full scan, then click on Scan.

    6. Leave the default options as it is and click on Start Scan.

    7. When done, you will be prompted. Click OK, then click on Show Results.

    8. Check or tick all items and click on Remove Selected.

    9. After it has removed the items, Notepad will open.

    Please post this log here. You can also find the log in the Logs tab. The bottom most log is the latest.


    Also can you post a new HJT log along with the results from the above scan.

    Regards

    Well yes the Log reveals that you have one or two questionable softwares lying about in your system

    O13 - Gopher Prefix: as an example

    Limewire isn't great for the health of the PC neither, It attracts a lot of unwanted magnets which in turn can easily turn into viruses and infect your system

    Regards

    The scans previously indicate that other threats have been removed however the files are still on your system for one or two of the suspected software's.

    Ok after reviewing your log i will advise:

    1. Run HiJackThis

    2. Check the following entries:

    • O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [Launcher] %WINDIR%\SMINST\launcher.exe
    • O13 - Gopher Prefix:


    3. Select "Fix" and the files will be removed.

    4. Reboot your system and perform one more scan will your HiJackThis

    The files should now be absent from the log and should have cleared your PC of all infections

    ***Afternote***

    Launcher.exe is an executable belonging to many applications including Webshots- a Windows desktop downloader, Uinterface Mouselaunch- a file and application initiator, and also a hardware interface for Samsung products.
    Note: launcher.exe is an advertising program by Intercort Systems. This process monitors your browsing habits and distributes the data back to the author's servers for analysis. This also prompts advertising popups. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.
