In order to get rid of the malware "powerfulvirusremover2008" junk, I downloaded [Malwarebytes Anti-Malware], which did a tremendous job. Still, four registry keys are left over after a couple of reboots that I can't even delete manually in regedit.
Any suggestions what to do would be truly appreciated (googling and then clicking on some result still "re-directs" me to a site I do not wish to go!

Here is the log after a couple of reboots:
