Hitman Pro is better with rootkits and some real nasty viruses so...

Not the best idea.

Full scan with everything.

If you do a scan with hitman pro do a regular scan !

I don't think that MBAM will yeild any condusive results, I just ran quick scan and no mallacious files were detected, so, I'll run a regular scan with hitman and I will post the results.

Hi,

Alueron is a rootkit, so you are best trying to remove this with TDSSKiller from Kaspersky:

How to remove malware belonging to the family Rootkit.Win32.TDSS (aka Tidserv, TDSServ, Alureon)?

Also consider replacing AdAware with something more robust - AdAware really hasn't been a mainstream malware solution from quite a few years now.

Regards,
Golden
