What do I do about those files found by ESET? Just delete them?

Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • The log should be saved on the desktop
  • Post it here
Here it is, found nothing.
