Had virus/malware.. now just need help to check my system is cleaned

  1. Hiya guys

    Just yesterday I was an ***** and opened something I shouldn't had have, and ended up with a trojan and a few viruses - it was pretty bad and couldnt get windows to load without running the Windows restore from the Packard Bell recovery program each time.

    I'm pretty sure I've cleared the worst of it now (thanks to your 8 step removal process!), but would really appreciate it if someone could just have a quick look through the logs to check its all gone, and if not what else I need to do.

    Also, because of this I have loads of anti virus/spyware removal software on my machine now - which ones are the best and will protect me the best in the future?

    Please find the files attached.

    Cheers
    Andy

    Well if u want a paid one,u can go the norton way or can try spyware doctor with antivirus.
    If u want a free solution u can try comodo internet security, avast anti virus.
    Pc tools threat fire is a good free anti-spyware.
    U can install both avast and threat fire.i have the same combination!
