It looks like your problems are not malware related. But anyway try to run following scan once again:

We should proceed with general antimalware scan which can take quite a long time so please be patient.

Download Virus Removal Tool (VRT) from Here to your desktop
(You have to enter your e-mail address and click on Submit Form button. Please download latest English version of this tool)

Run the programme you have just downloaded to your desktop (it will be randomly named )

First we will run a virus scan

Click the cog in the upper right

Select down to and including your main drive, once done select the Automatic scan tab and press Start Scan
(Please be patient as this scan can take a few hours)
Posted Image

Allow VRT to delete all infections found
Once it has finished select report tab (last tab)
Select Detected threads report from the left and press Save button
Save it to your desktop and attach to your next post


Now the Analysis

Rerun VRT and select the Manual Disinfection tab and press Start Gathering System Information

On completion click on Report sending and then the link avptool sysinfo.zip (open the file manager) to locate the zip file to upload and attach to your next post

No. You have to save it manually. Please run Kaspersky scan one more time.

OK. From provided logs your computer seems to be malware free.

At this point if your computer is nor running well I would suggest OS reinstall. As you don't have Vista install media I recommend you to borow it from your friends, collegues etc. Then follow instructions here.

OK, but I don't have friends who are physically close so this may take some time (to get it sent etc. assuming they have one). I'm currently checking into it. In the mean time is it possible that there is a Key-logger/Screenshot program running unseen?

Hi,

Is there any other way to get a Vista OS?

Legally? Unfortunately I don't know if this is possible as Vista is obsolete OS.

In the mean time is it possible that there is a Key-logger/Screenshot program running unseen?

From provided logs no. But everything is possible.

In my opinion your major concern goes to bad cooling system of your laptop. CPU temperature above 90° C is way too high even for 100% load state.

So if it is the cooling system will reinstalling the OS help?

Do you know of somewhere in my PC I can look for a Key-logger/screenshot program?

No. Why you want to look for that?

So if that's true I should take it back to the repair shop and have them inspect the cooling system?

Like I said before,from the strange things the PC does it seams to me that something else is running on my PC.

Yes, I highly recommend that.

From provided logs there are no traces of malware. Are you using your computer for e-banking?
