Windows 7 Home Premium x64

nothing, right now i'm doing a full scan

EDIT: it takes too long for a full scan, i cancelled it. Anyway, the quick scan didn't detect anything, so i think i'm safe now.

Let’s check the Security status with the following...

Download Security Check:
Save to your Desktop.

Double-click SecurityCheck.exe

Follow the on-screen instructions inside the black box.
When done, a Notepad report opens automatically: checkup.txt

Post checkup.txt in your reply, and, please do not take any corrective actions!!

Folder - Delete from Command Prompt

RD /S /Q "C:\FRST"

Please Verify Java Version
Uncheck any toolbar and/or software offered with the Java update.

The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) that comes along adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications. If you don't want to run another extra service, go to:
Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous
Uncheck the box for: Java Quick Starter
Click OK and restart your computer.

Next, please remove any old Java version and its remnants...
Download JavaRa:
Save to the Desktop and unzip it.

Right click on JavaRa.exe, and select: Run As Administrator
Choose the language of your choice and click: Select
Click: Remove Older Versions
Accept any prompts as they appear.

i've successfully installed the latest version of Java using 'Verify Java Version' service, and after that i removed the old one using JavaRa : JavaRa.log
However, despide the latest java version is version 7 update 21 (tells me when i'm verifying java version with Mozilla), when i hit Control Panel-Java-General-About, it tells me that i have the old version, version 6 update 26. I'm confused.

When i try to verify Java version with Internet Explorer, it tells me that it's unable to verify.

I can't delete FRST folder, inside it is now only one folder called 'Quarantine'

I will suggest doing this to fix the issue:

HTML Code:
Step 1: Enter into Windows safe mode (F8) 
Step 2: Download old and new version of MSE from 
Step 3: Delete old files/folders related to MSE (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client) 
Step 4: Run Ccleaner to clear the registry. 
Step 5: Download Malwarebytes Antimalware, Update and then run a Complete System Scan. 
Step 6. Download Spybot search and Destroy. Update. Run a full Scan. 
Step 7: Download Emsisoft Emergency Kit, Update Database, Run a complete scan. 
Step 8: Download TDSSkiller. Run. Step 
9: Download Kaspersky Virus Cleaner. Run. 
Step 10: Download ComoboFix. Run. Let it fix file system permissions. 
Step 11: Delete control panel Entries for MSE using Ccleaner. 
Step 12: If possible run "Registry Reviver". 
Step 13: Open CMD.exe as Administrator. Execute these commands.  
net stop winmgmt 
cd /d %windir%\system32\wbem ren repository repository.old 
net start winmgmt  

Step 14: Reboot into Windows normal mode. 
Step 15: Try installing MSE v2.x.x installer. If does not work try a later version. 
This should probably gonna work.
