Dear toby1944,

You log looks pretty clean, but lets run some scans just to make sure.

You may have already downloaded the following programs; please just make sure you have the most updated version and updated signatures.

**********************

Please download Ewido Anti-Malware from here
(Note: As this is a trial version, after the 14 day trial period has expired Ewido will lose some functionality with it. Ewido will then work as an On-Demand program, make sure to check for updates regularly).
  1. Install ewido security suite
  2. When installing the program, under "Additional Options" UNCHECK...
    • Install background guard
    • Install scan via context menu
  3. Launch ewido, there should now be an icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  4. The program will now open to the main screen.
  5. When you run ewido for the first time, you may get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
  6. You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files:
    • On the left hand side of the main screen click update.
    • Then click on Start Update.
  7. The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
    (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful")
  8. Close Ewido Anti-Malware
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
Ewido manual updates

Once the updates are installed, do the following:
  1. Reboot computer into "Safe Mode" using the "F8" method...
    • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Boot Menu appears
    • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item
  2. Once in Safe Mode start Ewido Anti-Malware
  3. Click on scanner. (Note: Do not start any programs or open any windows while Ewido is scanning)
  4. Click on Complete System Scan, the scan will now begin.
  5. While the scan is in progress you will be prompted to clean files, click OK.
  6. When it asks if you want to clean the first file, put a checkmark in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections", then choose clean and click OK.
  7. Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located at the bottom of the screen named Save Report.
  8. Click Save Report.
  9. Now save the report .txt file to your desktop.
  10. Close Ewido Anti-Malware

Reboot into normal mode

***********************

Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location. Post the contents of the ActiveScan report


***********************

In your next post, please post back with the results of your Ewido Scan, your Panda Active Scan and a fresh HJT Log

Also, please let me know specifically what you mean by this:
