    Hello mangool, Please read and follow instructions.

    Since your log reports are clean and free of malware, lets "clean up" after ourselves.

    Next

    Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool again.
    • Click on the Uninstall button.
    • Click Yes when asked are you sure you want to uninstall.
    • Both AdwCleaner.exe, its folder and all logs will be removed.


    Next

    • Right click the JRT Icon select delete.
    • Remove any log files from the desktop.
    • Empty recycle bin.


    Next

    • Double-click OTL to start the program.
    • Copy and paste the following text below into the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom of OTL.


      Code:
      :Commands
      [ClearAllRestorePoints]
    • Then click the Run Fix button.
    • Let the program run unhindered. When finished click on OK and close the log that appears.
    • Note: I do not need to review the log produced.
    • Now close all other programs apart from OTL as this step will require a reboot.
    • On the OTL main screen, press the button.
    • Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.


    The above process will flush old System Restore Points and create a new, as well as uninstalling the tools used in this process including OTL itself.

    Finally

    I post this for everyone. There prevention steps

    Turn On Automatic Updates:

    To do that:

    1. Click Start,click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then press ENTER.

    2. Click the Automatic Updates tab, and then click to select one of the following options. We recommend that you select the Automatic (recommended) Automatically download recommended updates for my computer and install them If you click this setting, click to select the day and time for scheduled updates to occur. You can schedule Automatic Updates for "any" time of day. Remember, your computer must be on at the scheduled timefor updates to be installed. After you set this option, Windows recognizes when you are online and uses your Internet connection to find updates on the Windows Update Web site or on the Microsoft Update Web site that apply to your computer. Updates are then downloaded automatically in the background, and you are not notified or interrupted during this process. An icon appears in the notification area of your taskbar when the updates are being downloaded. You can point to the icon to view the download status. To pause or to resume the download, right-click the icon, and then click Pause or Resume. When the download is completed, another message appears in the notification area so that "you" can review the updates that are scheduled for installation. If you choose not to install at that time, Windows starts the installation on your set schedule.

    Antispyware programs:

    I would recommend the download and installation of the following program and the updating of it regularly:

    WinPatrol As a robust security monitor, WinPatrol will alert you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge.
