    Sorry ... but when we used to have a whole staff of Mods, we had the time to troubleshoot individual logs for folks, but now that we have only a couple of Mods, I personally, don't have the available time to do this.

    Maybe Cliff has the time -- I don't know.

    If you have an AV installed, it obviously didn't do a good job of protecting you. So, at this point, about all you can do is the following:
    1) Download free AV products and run them. Couple that come to mind are MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and SuperAntiSpyWare.
    2) Download and burn free AV boot disks, boot from them, connect to the Internet to update their definitions -- and run scans. Couple of places that provide these are Kaspersky and Avira.
    3) Download and run the TDSSkiller (Root Kit remover) from Kaspersky and run that.

    All that means is that you have no rootkits on your drive. You still need to consider doing 1) and 2).
