    You're concerning me wee1man :suspiciou
    If you have to resubmit again after this because of some other silly mistake, I think I'll re-check all your posts, as at this stage I thought you had already known all these basic things

    -> No action taken on MBAM scan, for found issues
    Please re-run Malwarebytes
    Confirm updated (third tab)
    Then do the above quoted message, but this time "Remove all found issues"

    By the way, you will need to then restart, and run (and attach) a new HJT log

    Please remove Spybots S&D from Add\Remove Programs

    Then scan with HJT again, and tick all of the following
    Close your Internet Browser, and then select Fix all
    Download Combofix
    Lots of info on its use h e r e
    Direct download h e r e

    Save it to a location that you can easily find later (in Safe Mode) ie directly to C drive

    Restart your computer to Safe Mode (by repeatedly pressing F8 on your keyboard before Windows starts)
    Log into your Administrator account
    Locate the previously downloaded Combofix
    Double click on it to run, answering any prompts along the way
    Note: during Combofix scan (lasting up to 10mins) your Desktop and clock may reset (all normal)

    Once Combofix has finished, save the log file to be attached to a new reply
    Restart back to Normal mode, and attach the Combofix log
