Information from another thread

Hello,
I have recently been browsing the security news section and saw
Malware Removal Guide 2011: How to Get Rid of All The Latest Malware
Code:
Non hyper-linked for the paranoid:
http://www.sevenforums.com/security-basics/194853-malware-removal-guide-2011-how-get-rid-all-latest-malware.html
In the article that this thread linked the author mentioned
Quote:
Other extensions and add-ons worth wielding to fight the malware fight include Web of Trust, KB SSL Enforcer, Adblock, and HTTPS Everywhere.
I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to install those into my web browser (Chrome for now). The reason I am not using a Google search to find them is because add-ons such as these that are so highly looked at most likely have counterparts doing the opposite, just waiting for that unsuspecting person.

NOTE: I am sorry if A: this is in the wrong place or B: if this has already been posted (did not find it).
NOTE 2: If it is in the wrong place, could someone please point me to the correct place?

Thank you,

Edit: added CKScanner report
Edit 2: added Avast! last full scan report and cmd prompt showing that the flash drive is not appearing to windows
Edit 3: added Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware log
Edit 4: added Spybot – Search & Destroy log
Edit 5: added picture of the folder and permissions that it has versus random EA folder (highlighting courtesy of MSPaint skills)
Edit 6: attached DDS scan info. (I know I have utorrent installed)
Edit 7: CKScanner file updated (was not scanned from on desktop before... new file was from on desktop)

There is nothing to indicate any problems in those file attachments. Why do you say it is troubling?

What anti-virus software is currently installed on your system?

currently avast and the thing I was wondering about is
Folder Found : C:\ProgramData\boost_interprocess
Never heard of that before and when I looked at it there was a lock icon on the folder. The reason why I have been doing increased amount of scans is because recently I was messing around with another person's server code (released for public) and there was a RAT.java (--> RAT.class) and was wondering if it executed. the rat that it referred to was rataman.exe ... that being said I just check back on the thread it was released on and supposedly the file was not an actual rat downloader. (still want to be cautious)

I would run a scan from outside the Windows boot environment, using this:

Windows Defender Offline

Will do shortly, and as for background information:
Ran Avast! full scan (nothing found - will do again)
Ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware either flash or full (nothing - will do again)
Ran Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit
Ran FSS
Ran CKScanner
Ran AdwCleaner
-- the ones where I kept reports (more recent) were attached.

EDIT: well there might be a logistical problem here.... the flash drive I was going to use got bricked on reformat (was a Win 7 bootable before - self made...). Not sure where another one is, will look shortly.

Also I cannot burn or read CDs, but that was from before (CD drive just stop working a while back (before this RAT thing)).

EDIT2: Gah I acted too soon with the reformat idea... read the directions on thread further and it says don't.

I'm probably alone in this but I don't put a whole lot of stock in Web of Trust. Nothing wrong with the program per se, but its based on individual feedback. A bad rating could be due to anything from Virus's to someone being mad at a slow download. Many people use it and swear by it, but I found just too many "iffy" ratings for me.

I agree - the ratings are influenced too much by individual recommendations based on idiocy.

I agree with both of you, but it is nice to have something versus having nothing... (I have Avast! web rep thing but Chrome fights with it sometimes)
