Looks like I messed up and left that zip file, so I would like for you to delete it manually.
E:\CHRIS-HP\Backup Set 2013-02-01 084155\Backup Files 2013-02-01 084155\Backup files 1.zip
that's the file to delete.
For your backups - I would recommend that you get yourself an external hard drive, at least 500 GB. 1 TB would be great. as you could keep more backups on the drive.
There are some good instructions here
Now, once you delete that file --
Subject to no further problems
I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems
Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean
A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:
- Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following
- Then click the Run Fix button at the top
- Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done
Run OTL and hit the cleanup button. It will remove all the programmes we have used plus itself.
We will now confirm that your hidden files are set to that, as some of the tools I use will change that
- Go to control panel
- Select folder options (Appearance > Folder options in category view)
- Select the View Tab.
- Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Do not show hidden files and folders.
- Click Yes to confirm.
- Click OK.
Please Keep Java Updated
WARNING: Java is the #1 exploited program at this time. The US Department of Homeland Security recommends that computer users disable Java
See this article and this article.
I would recommend that you completely uninstall Java unless you need it to run an important software.
In that instance I would recommend that you disable Java in your browsers until you need it for that software and then enable it. (See How to diasble Java in your web browser and How to unplug Java from the browser)

Now we can purge the infected ones
