Im running windows 7 with avast free antivirus. I use malwarebytes, spybot search & destroy & super anti spyware free editions for scanning for malware.

Im a beginner & I know nothing about malware, virus or anything related to those. & I absolutely have no skills in interpreting scan logs. I thought of posting the log here, & trying to ask for help from expert members.. Any help is highly appreciated. 

 

1) I have posted the log file & the scan result screenshot for Spybot Search And Destroy 2.6 "full system" scan.

2) The second log & the second screenshot are that of the "rootkit analyzer" scan from the same program.

 

Can anyone please guide me on what to do? Should i simply go for the "fix selected" option or should i do nothing at all? Are these actually caused by malware or they are false positives? Can someone please guide me on this?? Please! 

Is there any other effective way to make sure that my laptop (win7) is completely free of any suspicious codes? I surely feel like my laptop has been infected but I find no way to confirm it & remove it.. Can anyone please help me out with this?

I have not used Spybot products for years and most of our members do not use it either. If you have questions or issues as a result of using it (i.e. allowing it to make changes, interpreting log results, removing detection's), I suggest you contact Spybot Support through their forums or by emailing one of their support teams if no one replies here.

Until recently I have used both Spybot 1.62 and 2.x for a number of years, since even WFW311 days.  I have always set my Action to toss anything/everything flagged into the Quarantine bucket.  I go into my Q-bucket and restore the known goods; delete the "baddies."

Just like with anti-virus programs...there is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone and there is no single best anti-malware solution to supplement your existing security protection. Every security vendor's lab uses different scanning engines and different detection methods. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses and they often use a mix of technologies to detect and remove malware. You may need to experiment and find the one most suitable for your needs.

There are many discussions on this topic posted in the Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, and Privacy Software forum.

"...It would do no harm if we quarantine good ones too.. right??"  Correct, if Spybot mistakenly flags a known-good file, you can restore it sooner or later.
