I had a virus on the system and have been running several virus cleaning programs to begin with. A bunch of mshta , svchosts, and iexplorer processes would be running even if I didn't have internet explorer running. I started off with Housecall. Then I ran HijackThis to get rid of anything that was internet related. Hijack this could not remove some of the entries in the registry including MKetcyra.com in the HKLM\...\Run. When I looked in the registry, I didn't see this entry. I did clean out the multiple areas of Run/RunOnce in the registry manually.
The MKetcrya.com also appears in HKUS\S-1-5-18\...\Run, but I don't know the full path to look in there.
After this, I ran SuperAnti Spyware. I'm now working with the root remover, RootRepeal, but I'm less familiar with root kits. I disconnect from the network when not needing it. I also run anything in safe mode that I can. I have not used ComboFix for this yet, but have used it in the past to work on other computers brought to me.
After running RootRepeal report (everything checked), I get:

I will delete the temp files, but should I also delete these stealth objects and drivers? Do I do this manually or through Root Repeal?
Thank you for any help and suggestions!
