So I watched a video on Youtube, Making Win 7 run blazingly fast. A lot of standard stuff - CCleaner, MBAR (no problems found) etc. It recommends downloading ADW from Bleeping. Couldn't believe how much it found on my computer (which is still pretty fast, but sometimes seems slower than it used to. I used the cleaning function and rebooted.
During "Windows is Starting" got a loud steady beep and the computer didn't reboot. Finally turned it off and restarted. Got the repair console, but the enter key didn't work, nor did arrows. It was dead in the water. Tried again, same problem. Turned it off for five minutes, started up. This time the RC performed a restore and all seems normal.
Unfortunately, I'm left with some malware on my computer. I'm reluctant to re-try ADW, but thought I'd get some suggestions. Here are jpegs of what I saw in ADW.
Folders: Third image below. GreenTree and Smartbar are gone, but I unchecked the two folders that looked like they were registry related, and Conduit remains. What should I do?
Registry: First and second image below. There are about fifteen registry entries that ADW tried to delete. Does anything stick out that I should try to delete manually and then reboot? Any obvious problems.?
Any other suggestion. Thanks in advance!

Moved from Win 7 to 'Am I infected?'
