Some help with RootKit removal?

I had a bad case of RootKit. I have run ComboFix (first ran it and forgot to change the name to combo-fix, but it seemed to go ok (then ran it again as Combo-Fix, but found nothing more), except that the registry backup wasn't made i think) but I'm not sure that all of the RootKit is gone cause in the removal process, only 5 of 6 files were listed as removed.

The one that was left (or maybe removed, at least not listed as removed) was: hjgruinsqipcii.dll

I've attached the ComboFix log. I hope someone can help me find out if it's removed. I've run both an updated ESET scan and Malwarebytes scan and they found nothing. ESET does not warn me of the RootKit any longer either in startup.


P.S. - I truly admire the free advice people find themselves giving here. I truly hope people show the appropriate gratitude.
