My apologies for being somewhat unclear.
The command you ran....ipconfig etc etc was in response to an error shown in MiniToolBox
Trend Micro OfficeScan Client pccntmon.exe.....shows in the SecurityCheck scan. It is another AntiVirus program.
Are you able to update it ???.....this is most important....If you are, then we can uninstall MSE.
Windows Vista or Windows 7
, and in the Search programs and files text box, type Appwiz.cpl, and then press ENTER.
- Right-click Microsoft Security Essentials, and then click Uninstall.
- Restart the computer,
This will leave ONE antivirus on your pc
Report back with the answer, please.....again I stress.....you MUST be able to update Trend, before you uninstall MSE
No need to worry about Zone Alarm Toolbar......AdWCleaner has remedied that...:(Folder Deleted : C:\Users\ofallonp\AppData\Roaming\CheckPoint\ZoneAlarm LTD Toolbar)
I would definitely Remove /Uninstall Search Protection (Version: 188.8.131.52)
The Spigot Search Settings is an application which is part of the Spigot Toolbar. Spigot search settings.exe's purpose is to check periodically your default search engine and restore it to Yahoo
Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/

2 - Click the ESET Online Scanner button.

5 - Click the Start button.
6 - Accept any security warnings from your browser.
7 - Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
8 - Click Advanced settings and select the following:
* Scan potentially unwanted applications

* Enable Anti-Stealth technology
9 - ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer.
10 - Please be patient as this will take some time (first time scans are always longer).

If you lose the log it can be found at C:\Program Files\ESET\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
If no infections are found then please tell me -
You can ignore any ESET detection of AdwCleaner...it is a false positive detection.
