Done.
Rebooted.
ESET folder is gone so no further info for the log (because it is gone also!!!)
What now?

How's your computer working now?

Sorry about the delay but it gave me a few days to monitor the computer. It seems to running fine and smoothly. Is there any last thing that I need to do? I still have JRT and MBAR on the desktop......

That's good. We can do some clean up and we'll be finished.

Click Start> Computer> right click the C Drive and choose Properties> enter
Click Disk Cleanup from there.



Click OK on the Disk Cleanup Screen.
Click Yes on the Confirmation screen.



This runs the Disk Cleanup utility along with other selections if you have chosen any. (if you had a lot System Restore points, you will see a significant change in the free space in C drive)
*****************************************************
This step will remove all cleaning tools we used, it'll reset restore points (so you won't get reinfected by accidentally using some older restore point) and it'll make some other minor adjustments...
This is a very crucial step so make sure you don't skip it.
Download DelFix by Xplode to your desktop. Delfix will delete all the used tools and logfiles.

Double-click Delfix.exe to start the tool.
Make sure the following items are checked:

  • Activate UAC (optional; some users prefer to keep it off)
  • Remove disinfection tools
  • Create Registry backup
  • Purge System Restore Points
  • Re-set system settings

Now click "Run" and wait patiently.
Once finished a logfile will be created. You don't have to attach it to your next reply.

I did the Disk Cleanup, and downloaded Delfix and ran it. Mbar icon is still on the desktop even after running Delfix twice. I can't find the main program of mbar and when I right click on it can not find anyway to uninstall it.....what should I do?

You can look on your C drive, Program Files. If you can't find MBAM there just delete the shortcut. If it is still there under Program Files you can uninstall it.

I could not find MBAR in neither of the two Programs Files nor in the Uninstall area located in the Control Panel. There is a Malwarebyte Anti-Malware folder and there is no trace of MBAR there either. So, I right clicked on the desktop icon and after confirming that I indeed wanted to delete it, sent it on it's way to life ever after, in the trash!!
I guess we are done! Thanks loads!!!

I believe MBAR removes itself when completed.
