Thank you for the logs and the info :)

It appears that you were successful. Are you still experiencing any problems?

It has been suggested that you uninstall your current version of Sun Java, and install the latest version.

We have a couple of things left to do.

1. We need to re-hide those files again.

Click start >>> Control Panel >>> Folder Options and double click
Under the View tab scroll down to Hidden Files and Folders
Uncheck Show hidden files and folders
Check Hide extensions for known file types
Check Hide protected operating system files (Recommended}
Click Apply and click OK
Close out of Control Panel.

2. If you are sure you are having no more problems, then let's create a new restore point

Right click on the My Computer Icon on your desktop
Choose Properties from the menu
Click on the System Restore tab
Put a checkmark/tick in the box next to Turn off System Restore on all drives
Click Apply and click OK
Reboot your computer

Again Right click on the My Computer Icon on your desktop
Choose Properties from the menu
Click on the System Restore tab
UNcheck the box
Click Apply and click OK
Reboot
You now have a clean restore point.

3. Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
Make your Internet Explorer more secure -
This can be done by following these simple instructions:

*Open [B]Internet Explorer
and click on the Tools menu and then click on Internet Options.
*Click on Security
*Click the Internet icon
*Click on Custom Level
*Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
*Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
*Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
*Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
*Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
*Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
*Change the Allow paste operations via script to Disable
*Click on OK
*Save (if asked).
*Click on Apply button
*Click on OK
*Close Internet Options

Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently -
It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly.
This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer.
If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

Update all scanning programs regularly -
Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

We will leave this topic open for a couple of days, in the event you have further problems.

Happy surfing, WhiteRider:)
