Noting what you already posted...
I recommend that you use Adwcleaner....Not everyone online knows that 1 MB installer are Spyware.
You might have tried to download something and ended up installing an ad ware.
The weird thing is that your MBAM didn't warn you...(Or you ignored it).

Adwcleaner
JRT
Rkill.exe
(Pssst! Hitman pro never misses a driver or a system file...Use it with caution if you want it..Because it includes AMD drivers in syswow64 and sys32 in the detection list)

Thanks people - lots of useful tips.

Btw, I just spotted that the system clock time was an hour ahead. I don't know when that happened, but I'm 98% sure it wasn't wrong before. Is that the footprint of malware of some sort?

Did you use Rkill.exe?
No use of just hearing about it -.-
It is like for all malwares.
Why sometimes your clock screws up

The bizarre thing is that the timezone already WAS set correctly. It's just that the actual time was out by 1 hour.

Yikes - BitDefender Rescue CD has found "12 threats in 92 items" that were not found by AVG Cloudcare, JRT, AdwareCleaner, MalwareBytes AntiMalware, even though I ran all of the above after running rkiller in a windows safe mode boot.

BitDefender has found:

Exploit.Iframe.Vulnerability
Gen:Variant.Kazy.385912
I-Worm.Hybris.B
Joke.Funny.A
Trojan.Agent.BZIY
Trojan.Agent.BIFH
Trojan.Generic.KD.2318653
Trojan.Upatre.AT
W97M.Dowloader.Kl
W97M.Dowloader.KV
W97M.Dowloader.Kl
W97M.Melissa.BQ@mm

Should I "disinfect" or "delete"?
If I don't hear from anyone shortly I shall disinfect.

EDIT
Fwiw, a number of them seem to be in old email archives.

EDIT02
Some wouldnt "disinfect" do I tried to "delete" them. They are the "Exploit.Iframe.Vulnerability" threats. They seem to be in an old Outlook .PST archive file.
HELP! Bitdefender Rescue CD doesnt seem be able to Delete them either! After I select delete them and click "Fix issues" it lists each one with a status of "Deleted" (in green) however it still says "1 threat in 37 items still present on your system" near the top of the window and Resolved Issues is still at "0".

And after about 4 attempts after I click finish, on the final screen it says "37 infected items have been ignored. Your computer is not virus free!"

Delete them, would be my advice.
I'm not at all surprised about that - although any that were in emails would probably have been caught if you'd tried to open the email concerned. Many scanners avoid attempting to open emails to scan them - relying on catchng the bad ones when someone attempts to open them. (I always switch email scanning off on any machine I use, as I've historically found that it can cause prblems)

What do I do about the ones that won't delete? Should I re-scan or try another application?

Wait - are you saying that email scanning is a BAD idea?
