    Previously you asked about what programs you should keep.

    I would keep:

    avg anti spyware
    adaware
    spybot search and destroy
    spyware blaster

    and remove:

    HijackThis
    super antispyware addition
    prevx1

    There will always be multiples instances of desktop.ini files and they are not malicioius.


    Now you should turn system restore off to flush out all previous system restore points, then turn it back on and create a new restore point:

    To turn off system restore, on the Desktop, right click on My Computer and click on Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply and then click OK.

    Restart your computer, turn System Restore back on and create a restore point.

    To create a new restore point, click on Start – All Programs – Accessories – System Tools and then select System Restore.

    In the System Restore wizard, select Create a restore point and click the Next button.

    Type a name for your new restore point then click on Create.


    I also recommend downloading SPYWAREBLASTER for added protection.

    Read here for info on how to tighten your security.



    Delete your temporary files:

    In safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit - Select All then Edit - Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Go to Start - Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click Edit - Select All then hit Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Finally go to Control Panel - Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK (this option does not exist in IE7). Click Apply then OK.

    Empty the recycle bin.
