Should I run new scans with EEK and FRST? Here's AdwCleaner' log

Yes.  I expect Simplitec to still be there.

Reset Google Chrome to its defaults.

Please run FRST again. Next, select and copy the following text, including the words Start::and End::. Switch back to the FRST program window, and click the Fix button. It should read the fix directly from the clipboard and run the fix. When it is finished, please attach the fixlog.txt file it created in the same folder the FRST program is in.

Start::
2018-10-18 05:00 - 2018-10-18 05:00 - 000000000 ____D C:\ProgramData\simplitec
End::

Restart.

Run a fresh scan with FRST after the system has restarted.  Attach the new FRST scan log to your reply.

This is present in Chrome

CHR HomePage: Default -> hxxp://www1.delta-search.com/?babsrc=HP_ss&mntrId=8095F07BCB282751&affID=121564&tl=50513&tsp=4960

Reset Chromes Search preferences.

Simplitec is still there. Since your logs aren't showing any malware, whitelist the detection.

Should I whitelist the detection through EEK?

No, whitelisting in EEK works a little differently.  Whitelist it in Windows Defender if Defender is detecting it.

Google's search engine was the default, I found the one you mentioned before and removed it from Chrome's suggested search engines. How should I proceed?

You are welcome and happy to help.

Now to remove most of the tools that we have used in fixing your machine:

Download Delfix from here and save it to your Desktop.

  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is checked.
  • Also place a checkmark next to:
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore
  • Click the Run button.

When the tool is finished, a log will open in notepad. I do not need the log. You can close Notepad.

Empty the Recycle Bin

You can delete and uninstall any programs I had you download, that you do not wish to keep on the system.

To Remove EEK simple delete the EEK for in the of your System Drive, normally C:\EEK

Run Windows Update and update your Windows Operating System.
