I downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and followed the instructions from here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-windows-vista-recovery - The Malware showed up nothing after 2 hours of scanning. And now i can at least see my icons on my desktop, but not my start menu, but the virus is still on my computer. Is there another way to remove or maybe something i might have done wrong??

Edit: Moved topic from Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs to the more appropriate forum, due to the lack of restricted malware logs in topic. ~ Animal
