    Ok so on bootup I get the message "windows cannot run the text you entered " liveupdt.exe." Because the file does not exist." Ive read that it might be an Asus thing, but it only just started happening. If the file doesn't exist, but it's trying to run it, does that mean it's just something in my startup programs I need to change? Or could it be malware trying to disguise itself as an executable file? Thanks

    Run the scan again.
    Make sure that all entries are ticked under Under Settings > Detection and Protection in the left pane.
    Under Detection Options - make sure that all three entries are ticked.
    Under Non-Malware detections - set to Treat detections as Malware.

    Only post the scan log file if it finds something.
    ======
    Download Junkware Removal Tool
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/junkware-removal-tool/

    Temporarily shutdown your anti-virus to avoid any conflicts.
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/for...nti-virus-firewall-and-anti-malware-programs/
    Be sure to enable the anti-virus program after the scan.

    Right-mouse click JRT.exe and select Run as administrator (If using XP just double click on the icon to run it.)
    The tool will open and start scanning your system.
    Please be patient as this can take a while to complete.
    On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
    Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
