Hi,

I see you have the Alot Emusic toolbar installed. This is a questionnable application and I rather suggest you uninstall it - except for if you accept its privacy Policy: http://www.alot.com/toolbar/privacy/
This one also modifies you searchassistant.

Incident Status Location

Potentially unwanted tool:Application/NirCmd.A Not disinfected C:\WINDOWS\nircmd.exe.

Nothing wrong with nircmd.exe. It's a command line tool, but many scanners may flag it as unwanted. The nircmd.exe comes with a lot of removal tools. You can delete it if you want, but if you leave it, it won't hurt either.
