There is no malware on the MBR, and the MBR code is also clean.

Good news!

FRST64 got things under control.

Please run RogueKiller once again, and let's see what it shows.
(RogueKiller instructions in Post #2)

Also, provide an update on how the system is running.

Also, letís check the Security status with the following:

Download Security Check:
http://screen317.spywareinfoforum.org/
Save to your Desktop.

Double-click SecurityCheck.exe

Follow the onscreen instructions inside the black box.

When done, a Notepad report opens automatically, called: checkup.txt

Please post its contents in your reply.

Note:
SecurityCheck may produce some false warning(s). Please do not take any corrective actions!

here you are

Was my drive "D" scanned with any of what we did? If not, how would I go about this, as I swap info between master drive "C" and storage device "D"?

Thank you very much. You provided me with alot of help.

When you go to the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) console, click the Settings tab.
On the left side, go to: Advanced
Select: Scan removable drives
 
Next, go to the Home tab
Select: Custom
Press: Scan now

A prompt appears with the drives on the machine.

Select the drives you want MSE to scan, and do a Full scan.

Post back on any issues.

ok

I will do just that and have a look on my other drive. Say, are you primarily in the virus section, or do you help out elsewhere? I created a post in the "windows updates" section entitled "error code 66A" earlier this morning and have not had a nibble, with 170 views.

This old brain has enough to handle in the malware area. It keeps me totally confused!!

Hang in there, someone will show up to help.

Don't forget to post a new RogueKiller report. We need to see if it shows any more ZeroAccess.

I know I said I was going to purchase a plan from malwarebytes, and I intend to do so.
What is your take on that, cottonball? Or do you prefer another? I'll most likely keep MSE
as the primary A/V progy. Thx for your input.

PS, due to my habits and what I download, I pretty much need full time protection on both drives...

Nothing is going to protect you from bad habits and doubtful/harmful downloads.

Don't expect "FREE" help to continue for your negligence in abiding by the security rules of the net!!

You really need to invest in a virtualization program like Sandboxie as well as an anti-executable like EXE Radar Pro . . . . . . . No AV alone will protect you with your usage habits.
