with the antivirus software installed on it and do not open files ending with “.zip” or “.rar”,
unless you are expecting these files from someone.
Also, do the following:
1] Change your Facebook password
2] Delete all Facebook applications from your account; click here for instructions
3] Use AdwCleaner to delete all unwanted programs from your computer; click here for instructions"
NOTE: I DID NOT RUN ADWcleaner, at all - I WOULD SKIP THIS STEP
4] I would add: then run CCleaner in the REGISTRY CLEANER MODE.
