Hello Branko,

Your instruction for running OTL< you mentioned otl.txt. That file was not clreated. Only the log file that I posted as you requested.
Yes, you are right - my mistake. :(
But... Your latest set of logs appear to be clean! :cheers:

This is my general post for when your logs show no more signs of malware.
Before I give you instructions how to keep your computer clean and secure, you need to make a few additional steps.

Step 1.
Latest Java Installation Needed!

Attention: Print these instructions or copy them. You will be closing your browser!!

DOWNLOAD LATEST VERSION
  1. Get the latest version (7u45) of Java Runtime Environment (JRE)... © Sun Microsystems, Inc.
  2. Click the "Download JRE" button to the right.
  3. Check "Accept License Agreement "
  4. Locate the entry for Windows x86 Offline and click on the associated file name, save the file to your desktop.

INSTALL Java
  1. Close all open applications (standard), especially your browser.
  2. From desktop please double-click on jre-7u45-windows-i586.exe to install the newest version.
  3. Follow the on-screen directions and when installation is completed successfully, reboot your computer normally.
  4. Once the computer has been restarted, you can delete the "downloaded" installation file from your desktop.
OPTIONAL:
To prevent some unnecessary JAVA components from running when you boot your computer each time...
  1. Go to Control Panel and click on the JAVA icon.
  2. Press the Update tab and UNCHECK "Check for Updates Automatically". (You can check for updates manually.)
      Reply "Never Check" to the warning prompt.
  3. Now press the Advanced tab. Press the [+] to expand the "Miscellaneous" options.
  4. UNCHECK "Java Quick Starter".
  5. Press Apply and OK. Then close the Java Control Panel. Close and exit Control Panel.

Step 2.
OTL - Run Fix Script
You should still have OTL on your desktop.
Important! Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop.
  1. Double-click on OTL.exe to run it.
  2. Copy and Paste the following code into the Image text box.
    (Do not include the words Code: Select all - instead of it please click the Select all button next to Code: to select the entire script.)
    Code: Select all
    :Commands
    [CREATERESTOREPOINT]
    [EMPTYTEMP]
    [CLEARALLRESTOREPOINTS]
    
  3. Click under the Custom Scan/Fixes box and paste the copied text.
  4. Click the Run Fix button. If prompted... click OK.
  5. OTL may ask to reboot the machine. Please do so if asked.

Step 3.
AdwCleaner - Uninstall
You should still have AdwCleaner on your Desktop.
  • Double-click on adwcleaner.exe to run it.
  • Click on Uninstall.
  • Confirm with yes.

Step 4.
OTL-Cleanup
You should still have OTL on your desktop.
  1. Double-click on OTL.exe to run it.
  2. Press the CleanUp button.
  3. When done, you will be prompted to reboot your system to finish file removal, please select OK to reboot your computer.
