According to the last log you posted (DDS), in that thread with Kevin, your Windows Defender is disabled (as it should have been during that fix endeavor).

Have you forgotten to turn it back on?

Hiya Adam,

You are using Microsoft Security Essentials as your primary security program, MSSE is designed to turn off Windows Defender.

From Microsoft -

Q: Is Microsoft Security Essentials designed to replace Windows Defender?

A: No but if you are running Microsoft Security Essentials, you do not need to run Windows Defender. Microsoft Security Essentials is designed to disable Windows Defender in order to manage the PC’s real-time protection, including anti-virus, rootkits, Trojans and spyware.

Apologies for repying in your thread 1972vet, as I was involved with the initial log thought I should reply...

Kevin

It's quite alright Kevin. I overlooked the fact that the user is running mse so your jumping in was relevant and timely. Thanks!
