Hi Jeff250,

SarahW asked me to post here because she will be away from forum for a few days.

Good to hear things are running well.

Looks like you have 2 antivirus installed.
Symantec & ClamWin.
If both have active background scanning I would suggest to uninstall one to prevent conflicts.
Having 2 antivirus programs running active protection will conflict.

Long as things are still OK I think we can clean up the tools used to clean your system.

Right click OTMoveIt & choose "run as administrator"
Click "cleanup"
If firewall asks; please allow OTMoveIt internet access so it can download the cleanup script it uses.
It should prompt for reboot to delete itself when done.
Go ahead & reboot.

Rehide system files by reversing instructions you used to show hidden files SarahW laid out in her First post.

After a few reboots and checking to see that all is well; it is highly recommended to reset your system restore to remove any possible backed up infected files there.

How to purge System Restore in Windows Vista.

Note: This will delete any previously created restore points.

Go to Start> Control Panel> Backup and Restore Center
On the left, select 'Create a restore point or change settings'.
In the window that opens, select the 'System Protection' tab
Each available disk which is listed, has a checkbox alongside it. Deselect each of these checkboxes
A new window is displayed, select 'Turn System Restore Off'.


This disables System Restore. You should then immediately re-enable it.

Reselect all the listed drives.
Click 'OK'.
Restart the computer.

New restore point shall be created at this time.

Since the HJT log is clean, here is some great information to help you stay clean and safe online:

Please double check any apps you install that they are compatable with Vista and if there are any "special" instructions for install.

Happy Safe surfing! :)
