    By the way, just sent you a small paypal donation - nothing big as I don't have a lot, but please consider this a thank you :)

    Scan still running, and given that it has only scanned 27000 files so far (I think I have around 90,000) I suspect it could take quite a while :) I'll paste as soon as it's ready, or tomorrow morning if I go to sleep before it happens (it's past midnight here) :)

    Thanks again for your help! If it turns out the problem wasn't actually gone I won't hesitate to post :)

    By the way; rather than start a new thread, I'll use this topic to ask you for advice / an opinion.

    You could say that I take the security of my computer quite seriously, although not as seriously as I should given how much sensitive data I tend to store and process. What I'm trying to do is compile the best possible protection I can have (coupled of course with common sense and caution :)

    I'm thinking of....

    1. Avira
    2. Ad-Aware + Spyware Blaster
    3. Comodo
    4. regular GMER scans

    What do you think? Do you think I should add / change something, perhaps go for paid software (I'm willing to do that if it is worth it.)

    Ad-aware is a tool of the past.
    You can safely uninstall it.
    In addition to what you listed, you should use MBAM regularly.

    Cool, will do - thanks!

    Anything specific for protecting oneself against keyloggers (prevention mostly)? Those are the ones I'm most paranoid about.

    Not really. Make sure, you know, who's using your computer :)

    ESET scan almost done, 94%....

    Your computer is clean [​IMG]

    1. We need to reset system restore to prevent your computer from being accidentally reinfected by using some old restore point(s). We'll create fresh, clean restore point, using following OTL script:

    Run OTL

    • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following:

    Code:
    :OTL
    :Commands
    [purity]
    [emptytemp]
    [EMPTYFLASH]
    [CLEARALLRESTOREPOINTS]
    [Reboot]
    • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
    • Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done
    • Post resulting log.

    2. Now, we'll remove all tools, we used during our cleaning process

    Clean up with OTL:

    • Double-click OTL.exe to start the program.
    • Close all other programs apart from OTL as this step will require a reboot
    • On the OTL main screen, press the CLEANUP button
    • Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.

    If you still have any tools or logs leftover on your computer you can go ahead and delete those off of your computer now.

    3. Make sure, Windows Updates are current.

    4. If any Trojan was listed among your infection(s), make sure, you change all of your on-line important passwords (bank account(s), secured web sites, etc.) immediately!

    5. Download, and install WOT (Web OF Trust): http://www.mywot.com/. It'll warn you (in most cases) about dangerous web sites.

    6. Run Malwarebytes "Quick scan" once in a while to assure safety of your computer.

    7. Run Temporary File Cleaner (TFC) weekly.

    8. Download and install Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI): http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/. The Secunia PSI is a FREE security tool designed to detect vulnerable and out-dated programs and plug-ins which expose your PC to attacks. Run it weekly.

    9. (optional) If you want to keep all your programs up to date, download and install FileHippo Update Checker.
    The Update Checker will scan your computer for installed software, check the versions and then send this information to FileHippo.com to see if there are any newer releases.

    10. Run defrag at your convenience.

    11. Read How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic2520.html

    12. Please, let me know, how your computer is doing.
