After getting as far as the Scan button, it's giving me the following: "Pending. Please uncheck elements you don't want to remove." I can't tell just what "elements" it's referring to.  :D1
Play it twice and it won't sound like a mistake.

That's the message you get when the scan is done, please click on the Clean button and post the content of the logfile.

Your log's looks OK. Are you still having problems with Firefox or is there any other problem I should know about?

No problems with Firefox.

1) Do I just delete or uninstall the following from my desktop:
mbar
mbar-1.07...
mbam
TFC
ESET
JRT
OTM
adwcleaner

2) Could you please explain what was accomplished by the scans you had me do. I ask because "Free Spider" was mentioned in one of them along with others and was wondering if there was trouble hiding in those files and if it has been cleared up.

The tools you ran showed the programs installed on your computer such as 'Free Spider' and some other files, but they are not necessary malware. The only bad entries were deleted by Adwcleaner and Junkware Removal, so your computer seems to be clean now.

If the computer is running fine and you're not having any other problem, then follow these final steps:

Create a System restore point.

  • On the Desktop, right-click My Computer> click Properties> click the System Restore tab.
  • Check "Turn off" System Restore.
  • Click Apply, a window will pop up and ask if you really want to turn it off, click Yes.
  • Now remove the check from Turn off System Restore.
  • Click Apply, and then click OK.
  • System Restore will be working again and will have a new Restore Point.

Remove ESET Online Scanner:

Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
Double click on Add/Remove Programs
Find: Eset Online Scanner in the list of installed programs and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it.

Run Delfix

This program will remove the tools used and its logs. If anything remains, you can manually delete it.
Please download Delfix and save it to your desktop.
Double click on Delfix.exe to run the tool and click on the Run button.
