Windows 7: Files Missing after virus

That OTL log looks alright, I was only doing a bit of housekeeping, no virus removing. I think it would be much better if Jacee was to handle your infection - she is far more experienced and you'll be in much better hands

If you're OK with this Jacee?


Edit: CKScanner log is fine as well. Where did you get your copy of Windows from?
