From what I gathered you actually ran the Threat scan and not the Custom Full scan,
Run the full scan and also adwcleaner and Superantispyware's full scan,
Cheers.

I did a Complete Computer Scan through "Malwarebytes Anti Malware".The scanned results gave 4 infected Malwares.3 Malwares were of,PUP type and 1 Malware was of , Trojan type.I have attached the Log information in the form of txt file.

I do not wish to install Adwarecleaner (Hope you won't mind ).I only want to have "Avast Free Antivirus 2015" & "Malwarebytes Anti Malware".So,if you can just reassure me by looking at this txt. file & my older 3 txt. files that, is it safe to delete them (Quarentined Malwares) from "Malwarebytes Anti Malware" ' s Quarentine section or not...I will really appreciate that

Adwcleaner will remove different things than Malwarebytes, your anti virus and even superantispyware. Unless you know all the places to go to find the things Adwcleaner typically removes, its best to download and run it. Its a small program that can be easily uninstalled after you use it. An alternative would be Junkware Removal tool but I typically run both if I'm cleaning a computer.

Alright then, I shall give these two a try...But , will these 2 (Adware Cleaner & Junkware removal tool) conflict with "Malwarebytes Anti Malware" or my regular "Avast Free Antivirus 2015" ?

The mbam log file shows you ran a Threat scan not a custom Full scan,
You also did not check to scan for Rootkits

Adwcleaner is really good and really fast
It is also a one time scanner so you'd be uninstalling it after cleaning what it finds.

I don't know much about JRT but it's pretty much a on deman scanner so it won't effect other security utilities
Avast
You'd be better off with Panda.

It is a mistake to NOT use AdwCleaner....

First, it is portable, and not truly 'installed', in the traditional sense; yes, there is a folder created (for containing quarantined items, and text report purposes), but, it can be deleted afterwards.

You have multiple adware TOOLBARS... (PUPS)

Rescan with AdwCleaner, This time click on the Clean button.
Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S#].txt) will open automatically (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).

***Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder

Do NOT save as XML File Type.... Just save as .txt with a 'name', if needed.
