    I have noticed that there is no antivirus program running
    Good security demands, in part, that you have an up-to-date antivirus program. This protects the system against viruses, Worms and some Trojans. Without this protection, the system is more vulnerable to attacks. Since you do not have an antivirus program, please consider installing one of the following programs- Note: You should have only one antivirus program.
    Both of the following programs are free and known to be good:
    Avira Free
    Avast Home

    Please reboot the system after the installation is complete.

    Once the programs is installed, you should check for updates immediately and then run a full system scan. This will help to make sure the program is configured and working properly and alert you to any viruses that might be on the system as a result of not having a functional AV.

    When you have finished, please attach all 3 of the logs for review.

    P2P or 'file sharing Warning: I notice that you are using Frostwire which is a file sharing P2P (peer-to-peer) program.

    Note: Even if you are using a "safe" P2P program, it is only the program that is safe. I suggest that you uninstall Frostwire for the following reasons:
    • As long as you are using file sharing networks and programs which are from sources that are not documented, you cannot verity that a download is legitimate.
    • Malware writers use these program to include malicious content.
    • Fie sharing is usually unmonitored and there is a danger that your private files might be accessed.
    • The 'sharing' also includes malware that the shared system has on it.
    • Files that are illegal can be spread through file sharing.

    Please read the information on P2P Warning to help you better understand these dangers.
    AdAware is loading- it should run.
    Your Adobe Reader is way out of date. You have v6, current is v9.XX. This is a vulnerability for the system:
    Visit this Adobe Reader site and make sure you have the most current update. Uninstall any earlier updates as they are vulnerabilities.
