Also, Sam, Is it bad to have many antiviruses and antimalware programs running on my computer? Or should I just go ahead and download all of the programs?

Sam, after my last post, I manually deleted all the programs we have used, including OTL, so I was not able to perform CleanUp!. Is that a problem?

Not at all. Cleanup simplifies the process and cleans up everything, but if you got it all manually that's fine too.

Well you should never have more than one antivirus program. In your case you should reinstall AVG or try Avast, which I find to be better than AVG right now. Then I recommend that you have at least two antimalware programs, Malwarebytes and Spybot are ideal. As long as you don't use both of them for real time protection it shouldn't cause a conflict for you. Just update them regularly and run a manual scan. Spywareblaster is a different type of program altogether and doesn't need to run in the background at all to be effective.
