  1. I had the security bar 7.1 and went through the entire process of the instructions given on the site for virus/spyware/malware removal instructions.

    1. Panda antirookit scan - result= no rootkit found
    2. step 10 . i could not download "tool 1" but followed tool 2 and 3 .

    I have attached the logs -
    1. pl let me know if my computer is safe now
    2. shall I delete cc cleaner and hijack this ????
    2. My computer has become slower after the above -it is very very slow.
    3. I now have the following softwares operating at the same time.

    Are they conflicting each other ?? which one do i delete OR operate to protect my Pc to the max.I use online banking and net a lot .

    Norton 360
    Norton antibot
    PC tools spydoctor
    Zone alarm
    Spyboot
    AVG antispyware 7.5

    although not long ago I would say continue with the inevitable cleaning; I have since read all guides here at TechSpot and agree that the safest method in this case is to backup all files, and re-install Windows (sadly)

    Otherwise you may be compromising your banking transactions. In at least you should change all passwords to your online accounts.

    Therefore, the decision is yours to contine.

    You could in fact continue to a clean system, and then decide on backup and re-install of Windows ofcourse.
