Windows 7: Need to make sure my computer is safe after virus scan

Need to make sure my computer is safe after virus scan

I don't know if this is the right location for thios topic, so bear with me.

My malwarebytes scan picked up a trojan virus that I got rid of, and restarted my computer to complete the process: according to mb, they are all quarantined and deleted. The virus was known as Trojan.Vilsel, which was found in 1 file, 2 registry keys, and 1 registry value.

HKCR\TypeLib\{91814EB1-B5F0-11D2-80B9-00104B1F6CEA} (Trojan.Vilsel)
HKCR\Interface\{0BA4BA22-2EF0-11D3-88C8-00C04F72F303} (Trojan.Vilsel)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\InstallShield\Engine\6\Intel 32\IKernel.exe (Trojan.Vilsel)

I don't know where or how I got them. While this has been removed, and my firewall still says its on under my control panel, I still want to know if I'am still clean. MSE says I'm okay, and I'm running SUPERAntiSpyware now, and its finding adware tracking cookies which are normal. I've even scanned Malwarebytes again for about 12 minutes to see if Vilsel was still there, and nothing showed up. If malwarebytes says it got rid of them and I don't have to worry, great, but just in case.

P.S. anyone out there, I do have a adobe flash problem as well that just resurface. Please check it out:

If Malwarebytes says its quarantined and deleted, and after all your scans came up clean, then I'd think I you're safe.

You can also do an online scan with Eset (Instructions from Corrine)

Go here to run an on-line scan from ESET.
  • Note: It is easiest if you use Internet explorer for this scan. (If you use an alternate browser, it will be necessary to download the ESET Smart Installer)
  • Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
  • Click Start
  • When asked, allow the ActiveX control to install
  • Click Start
  • Make sure that the option Remove found threats and the Scan Archives options are ticked.
  • Click on Advanced Settings, ensure the options Scan for potentially unwanted applications, Scan for potentially unsafe applications, and Enable Anti-Stealth Technology are ticked.
  • Click Scan
  • Wait for the scan to finish
  • Use notepad to open the logfile located at C:\Program Files\Eset\Eset Online Scanner\log.txt

If ESET found any issues, I'd start a new thread in Security, and post the log file as well.
