You're running two Anti-virus programs:
AV: Microsoft Security Essentials *Enabled/Updated* {3F839487-C7A2-C958-E30C-E2825BA31FB5}
SP: avast! Antivirus *Enabled/Updated* {904CF271-6431-DA47-5FCE-A87D98DFB681}

These are resource hogs and will fight for your system's resources. They may also fight each other's malware definitions. Only use one Anti-virus and uninstall the other one.

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.
Update Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7u17.
    Java SE Downloads
  • Scroll over to the right (JRE)
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-7u17-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.

After you have done the above, download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

I have done the steps for Java installs/uninstalls, is there anything else (besides fixing the multiple anti-virus softwares/malware ones - working on that now) that I should do? (such as upload a report of something or just the normal keep safe, scan stuff before downloading, read info about it before download).

Either way Thank you (to everyone) for support so far.
