Ran 8 steps need - logs checked

  1. Hello--

    Had a bunch of junk on a computer I no longer use. The primary symptom was receiving Trojan alerts from my security center and not being able to update virus/spyware definitions from popular providers (McAfee and others). Additionally search results from most engines would re-direct to advertisements when clicked on. I ran the eight steps this evening and have attached my logs. Any advice would be appreciated--the search engine behavior has stopped at this point.
