  1. My laptop was recently infected with some malware and trojan virus. I've followed the instructions to clean up my lap top.

    Attached is my log.

    Appreciate your feedback as to whether I've managed to clean my laptop.

    Thanks

    Looks ok, but im not a major expert so dont take my word as gospel until someone a lot smarter comes along with their opinion.

    These might be ok to fix, but once again im not an expert so dont take any actions until someone else has a look.
