    Well the screen came up and a number was called and then someone was remoting into the machine, software got installed, money changed hands.

    We have followed the procedures as best we can.

    The computer seems to be running OK but lots of junk from this unfortunate encounter still remain. Hopefully the logs will tell you what I need to do next.

    If you paid by credit card.....cancel the transaction!! Report it as fraud.

    I am not finding any issues in your logs except the following:

    ReRun RogueKiller and remove these items:

    ¤¤¤ Files : 4 ¤¤¤
    [PUP.HackTool][File] C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\KMSpico\KMSpico.lnk [LNK@] C:\PROGRA~1\KMSpico\KMSELDI.exe -> Found
    [PUP.HackTool][File] C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\KMSpico\Log KMSpico.lnk [LNK@] C:\PROGRA~1\KMSpico\scripts\Log.cmd -> Found

    [PUP.HackTool][Folder] C:\Program Files\KMSpico -> Found

    Reboot and rescan with RogueKiller and attach the new log.

    Is there a manual way of detecting malware and getting them removed?

    Looks good. I am not finding any more suspicious items in your logs.

    If you are not having any other malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:
    1. We recommend you keep Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware.
    2. Renable your Disk Emulation software with Defogger if you had disabled it in step 4 of the READ & RUN ME.
    3. Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HijackThis. If you don't see it or it will not uninstall, don't worry about it. Just move on to the next step.
    4. If running Vista, Win 7 or Win 8 or 10, it is time to make sure you have reenabled UAC by double clicking on the C:\MGtools\enableUAC.reg file and allowing it to be added to the registry.
    5. Now goto the C:\MGtools folder and find the MGclean.bat file. Double click ( if running Vista, Win7, or Win 8 Right Click and Run As Administrator ) on this file to run this cleanup program that will remove files and folders related to MGtools and some other items from our cleaning procedures.
    6. Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.
    7. After doing the above, you should work thru the below link:
