Also, I am running AVG free, Spybot S&D, COMODO Firewall, and ASqaured Free, is there anything else I could add to help protect myself? Again thanks for the help and here is my log:

Due to a lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
