I have an Asus K53E Laptop
Processor: Intel Core i5-2410M
64-bit Operating System
Windows 7 Home Premiums Service Pack 1

Recently my Malware-bytes found a virus, and I simply removed it. However when searching on Google, I read there may be alterations to the registry and the virus may come back.

(I can't find the Malwarebytes log any longer, so I couldn't tell you what the virus name is)

Today I was going through my start up programs, learning what each one did, and noticed that there was one in particular that Google search was stating as a virus, including a thread on this very forum.

The start up is Partner BHO Class. (Partner.dll)

Besides this concern, I was wondering in general if anything else looked peculiar. I plan to start using Sandboxie and Returnil Virtual to prevent problems from occuring, and just want to make sure everything is good to go before I do that.

I have attached a text file of my start up (from Crap Cleaner).

Thank you and much appreciation

If you did not delete it ..The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.

My apologies, I should have been more clear, in the Malwarebytes Log section, there are no logs present. I most likely may have deleted them after it found the virus. (Learned from my mistake)

The Malware Bytes version is and the Database version: 8302 (Date 12/3/2011)

I went ahead and did the Eset OnlineScan, and it found zero threats, so no log file was produced.
