Default Marketscore.RelevantKnowledge

SpyBot Search & Destroy picked this up a couple of days ago.

I did a search for "relevantknowledge" and half dozen or so entries were found. I deleted tham all and did another search. There were more entries.

I today ran SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, combofix.exe and MGtools as instructed in the relevant page.
Their logs will be attached.

After runing these, I searched again for "relevantknowledge". Two entries, MarketscoreRelevantKnowledge.zip and MarketscoreRelevantKnowledge1.zip were discovered in SpyBot's recovery folder, and an entry for a Google search was listed plus the URL of a website I looked at to get information about the infection.
I dragged the items in Spybot's recovery folder to the Recycle Bin, deleted the other two entries, and then ran CCleaner.

I then searched again for "relevant knowledge" but nothing was found.

Does this mean I have got rid of it?

Your logs are clean....If you are not having any other malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:
  1. We recommed you keep SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware. Unless you purchase them, they provide no real time protection. They are useful as backup scanners. They do not use any significant amount of resources ( except a little disk space ) until you run a scan.
  2. If we had you use ComboFix, uninstall ComboFix (This uninstall will only work as written if you installed ComboFix on your Desktop like we requested.)
    • Click START then RUN and enter the below into the run box and then click OK. Note the quotes are required
    • "%userprofile%\Desktop\combofix" /u
      • Notes: The space between the combofix" and the /u, it must be there.
      • This will uninstall ComboFix and also reset hidden files and folders settings back to Windows defaults.

    • Delete the C:\combofix folder from combofix (if it exists)

  3. Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.
  4. If running Vista, 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. Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HijackThis.
  6. You can delete the C:\MGtools folder and the C:\MGtools.exe file. You can also delete the C:\MGlogs.zip
  7. If you are running Vista, Windows XP or Windows ME, do the below:
    • Refer to the cleaning steps in the READ ME for your Window version and see the steps to Disable System Restore which will flush your Restore Points.
    • Then reboot and Enable System Restore to create a new clean Restore Point.

  8. After doing the above, you should work thru the below link:
