Default READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide

I want to thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. I cleared most of the malware from my laptop with the usual programs. (Yes, I invited the Devil in). Something(s) was still in my system that would not allow me to access the Windows Update site, or update my virus and mal programs. I found this old thread "READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide", and followed it to a tee. After reboot, Windows update was already downloading files.

While the thread was originally started a long time ago, the procedure in it is frequently updated. Thus it is not an old procedure. The date of the thread starting, does not equal the date of the last update. We don't recreate the thread each time the procedure is changed. We just edit the procedure.
