Use IE and go to http://eset.com/onlinescan and click on ESET online Scanner. Accept the terms then press Start (If you get a warning from your browser tell it you want to run it).

# Check Scan Archives
# Push the Start button.
# ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
# When the scan completes, push LIST OF THREATS FOUND
# Push EXPORT TO TEXT FILE , and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
# Push the BACK button.
# Push Finish
# Once the scan is completed, you may close the window.
# Use Notepad to open the logfile located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
# Copy and paste that log as a reply.


Let's also try the bitdefender quickscan.

http://quickscan.bitdefender.com/

When it finishes there is a View Report option at the bottom. Click on it and copy and paste the report (even if it says nothing found).

Were you able to run ESET? That's a good sign as it takes a long time to complete. Maybe the defrag of the pagefile did some good. I still think your hard drive is failing so make sure you save any pictures or documents or other data that you don't want to lose to some external media (CD/DVD, USB Drive, External disk or the web). If you have a gmail.com account you can use their Drive option to store up to 2 GB of data on their servers or just attach the files and send them to yourself. For pictures you can use one or more of these: http://web.appstorm....-sharing-sites/

You should be able to delete them on your own. Do a search for setup and then delete the ones it finds that were on eset's list.

If you type setup in the Search box it should find them for you. Or we can let OTL do it:


Copy the text in the code box by highlighting and Ctrl + c

:files
C:\Users\amanda\Downloads\Setup (1).exe
C:\Users\amanda\Downloads\Setup (2).exe
C:\Users\amanda\Downloads\Setup (3).exe
C:\Users\amanda\Downloads\Setup (4).exe
C:\Users\amanda\Downloads\Setup (5).exe
C:\Users\amanda\Downloads\Setup.exe
C:\Users\amanda\Downloads\setup.zip



then Rightclick on OTL and select Run As Administrator to start. Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste (ctrl +v) the text. Verify that you got it all and Then click the RUN FIX button (NOT THE QUICK SCAN button!) at the top
Let the program run unhindered, OTL probably won't need to reboot the PC when it is done. Save the log and copy and paste it into a reply.
It appears that Old Timer is now hiding the log in c:\_OTL\MovedFiles\01112013-some number.log so if you don't see it you can find it there.
