I just finished doing a number of scans on this computer after a bunch of trojans/malware was found but I'd like to make sure they are all gone. Here is a quick rundown of what has happened so far:

1) Someone visited a website (don't know the site) that seems to have caused this infection. This resulted in mass popups when I had Firefox open.
2) I used Internet Explorer to run the following online scanners:
Eset Nod-32 http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/
F-Secure http://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/ols.shtml
Trend Micro Housecall http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ (this one didn't work for some reason, wouldn't load)
3) I then used MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware (http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php) to scan and removed a few things.
4) This computer previously had an outdated version of AVG that I replaced with Avira AntiVir.
5) I tried installing Zone Alarm firewall but the installation would stall at 97% and then upon computer restarting the computer would simply hang after signing in with nothing but the mouse cursor and wallpaper visible. Only after going into Safe Mode and uninstalling the failed Zone Alarm installation would the computer be able to get to the desktop again. I instead installed Comodo firewall.

I'm not sure when it started but when I was going through the above steps another symptom showed up. When clicking on Google search results I would be redirected to ads. When hovering the mouse over these links and looking for the url in the bottom of Firefox it instead read as "undefined" but this would only last for a few seconds at a time. After clicking on a link 3-4 times I would get to where the link was supposed to lead. This problem is gone now though, I assume one of the above steps removed the problem.

So after all that I was recommended that I come here and post a log to make sure this comp is now clean. Thanks!
