Can't get rid of clclean.0001

I have a virus that I can't get rid of the last tiny pieces. It's been three days of trying this and that and it's still there.

Here's the background best I can remember. I don't know where I got the virus, but the laptop was running slow and acting weird, so I ran a few scans, caught some stuff, but svchost.exe kept crashing. I decided to move all my important files off to an external hard drive, then using Norton Ghost 14, I went back to a previous backup where I thought everything was running fine. I immediately started getting google redirects and the windows update web page was blocked. I ran a few more scans and that is no longer a problem. I have tried Malwarebytes, AdAware, MSERT, HimanPro (trial), Kasperkey (trial) and now they find nothing. But when I run rkill.exe it keeps coming up with C:\DOCUME~1\David\LOCALS~1\Temp\clclean.0001 . When I run in safe mode, rkill.exe does not catch this, which makes me think it's another virus, or the remnants of one of the viruses I removed.

Please let me know if I can provide any other information that can help.

Attached are the results of the OTL scan AFTER running rkill.
