    MBAM will stay put. :)

    Adobe Reader Update!

    Please download the newest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader from Adobe.com

    Before installing: it is important to remove older versions of Acrobat Reader since it does not do so automatically and old versions still leave you vulnerable.
    Go to the Control Panel and enter Add or Remove Programs (Programs and Features in Vista/7).
    Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader. Uninstall/Remove each of them.

    Once old versions are gone, please install the newest version.

    If it weren't safe from my end, then I wouldn't have told you.

    What is the problem at this point?

    I think that's everything, if the infections removed and I updated the security like you said,do I just remove that security checker?
