Any more problems/questions?

Yes. I'll give you a tool to run that will clean up in my final post.rbd wrote:1) Do I simply delete all the tools I downloaded in this process, now?
The free version is on demand only. There is a protection module available in the pro version, but there is a reasonable one-off fee for this. Again I'll give you more information in my final post.rbd wrote:2) Can I keep MBAM, despite having already Avast AV and Spybot S&D?
Does the free MBAM provide resident protection like Spybot's TeaTimer? or it only works as scanner?
It's personal preference really. I tend to update with a clean install if it's a major build update. If it's a minor version update I tend just to install over the top - unless I experience problems, then I do a clean install. I use the programs own uninstaller rather than a third party uninstaller as these programs tend to remove all the folders, including those which contain your personal preferences.rbd wrote:3) To update software versions, I usually do a clean install...
...Is this ok or should I do a clean install for them too every time?
As nothing was found this isn't necessary, but you can if you wish. I can give you instructions if need be.rbd wrote:4) Do you recommend that I create a new Restore Point, and remove all previous ones now?
Firewalls are a personal preference. If you can respond correctly to any questions posed by a third party, bi-directional firewall (Many of which now also include optional HIPs, Host Intrusion Prevention System) & your computer can take the extra resources one would use, then I would recommend you install one.rbd wrote:5) Firewall:
