I'm sure like me others are following this thread and a thought occured to me. Would it make sense to create a CD/DVD of WDO now for possible use in the future. That would save having to find an altenative Windows 7 machine later?

Shortcoming there is that your malware definitions on the DVD are frozen in time.

Since MS updates their database, sometimes,several times a day, and the engine is updated when needed, then true is that the dvd would be better than nothing, but would miss anything created after the date of creation of the DVD.

I've enough trouble as it is with people only running the quick scan (evident from the log files) which they vehemently deny. Just try to run a scan with WDO in 20 minutes. Quite impossible on any computer that we will encounter.

I attached all the files you wanted in my previous post. I'd missed the OSinfo one, but that's in there, too. Thanks.

From that osinfo.txt file, add to your system specs that you have
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

Missing is the SP1 and the 64-bit.
====================================
====================================
WIN | type MSCONFIG | ENTER | STARTUP tab |
Uncheck ALL

REBOOT!

You have just told Win 7 to not run unchecked programs at start up time.

You have not disabled the programs. They will be run when needed.

WIN = key with the Microsoft logo on top
=====================================
=====================================
CCLEANER | TOOLS icon | STARTUP tab | SCHEDULED TASKS tab |
Use DISABLE button to disable ALL except for:
Script:
CCleanerSkipUAC    Piriform Ltd    "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" $(Arg0
Close CCleaner.


REBOOT!


You have not disabled any programs. You have disabled the scheduled running.
Later, after your system is running smoothly, you may reenable desired programs.
==========================================
============================================

UNINSTALL
Script:
avastFree Antivirus    AVAST Software    8/24/2012        7.0.1466.0 
REBOOT

Avast Free is a problem-source.

Install the very best you can get, namely, MSE Microsoft Security Essentials.

Link to MSE in y signature.

MSE is the one and the only anti-malware,internet security program that I use, that I install and that I recommend.

============================================

After carrying out all of the items above, don't miss a one of them, then let me know if you are still having any problems.

thanks, karl

Karl,

I did everything in your list. Only thing was in CCleaner > Tools > Startup > Scheduled Tasks, I could not disable the following:

AdobeAAMUpdater-1.0
Failed to enable/disable startup item: No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.

I hit delete instead and that disabled it. Restarted. I downloaded the cleaner program aswclear from the avast website, rebooted in safe mode and ran it. It uninstalled avast from my computer. Restarted, then installed MSE. It ran a quick scan, but didn't detect anything. Each time I restarted that "Program" pop up came up. So whatever it is, it's still there.

Thinking it may be related to some program on my computer I uninstalled a lot of programs that I just wasn't using anymore. When I restarted the "Program" nag was there again. That thing is annoying.
