It's been happening at my old house too though, the other infected pc also used to be at another house so I don't believe that's the problem? Sorry for not explaining in my previous post.

  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post them in your reply

The logs are too long so I've attached them..

edit: it's not letting me upload the otl.txt and it's too big to post the content so i've uploaded it here:

Thanks for logs, you will have noted that the OTL.txt is very comprehensive so will take me a long time to decipher. Quick question for you, This program Gomez what is it, what do you use it for and is it installed on the other suspect PC.

That's fine with me.

Gomez is actually Gomez Peer, it's a software that processes information with your machine and pays you in exchange, I've been running it for more than two years now so I don't really think that's the issue either.
It is installed on the other PC and I can uninstall it if really needed but I haven't had any problems with it in the past.
I had it installed on two older laptops that I don't use anymore.

I've actually earned some money from it so it's never been bad for me?

I know exactly what it is, some security programs will flag that app a as a threat. If it is no problem can you uninstall it totally and see if the anomaly returns...
