Virus from a chinese email with a zip file

Yesterday I received an email from my friend in Chinese (he's Chinese), and it had an attached zip file. I assumed he sent it to the wrong person because I'm not Chinese, but curiousity got the better of me and I downloaded the attachment. It seems it was a virus using his email address. I am using ESET Smart Security 4 but nothing is being detected by it, but I definitely feel that my computer has gotten much slower.

I have attached the ActiveScan, Malwarebytes, and OTL log files.

Can someone help me to fix this problem (if there is one) please? I was also wondering if I could use a system restore point from a few weeks ago to solve it.

Thank you.

Anyone please? My school is being annoying and not replying to emails asking for another MSDNAA key for Windows 7 so it doesn't seem like it will be easy to just reformat.
