Did you pay for spysweeper?

Yep my mistake. Please ignore.

Okay, thanks guys, but what if I deleted that mistake. I didn't know that it was until after a while and you posted that. Is something going to be wrong on the computer now?

Okay, thanks. I'm not too paranoid if it's not going to harm anything. Another question to this though, is

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [SpySweeper] C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper\SpySweeper.exe /0

this the actual spysweeper program? Because if it is I don't want to get rid of it. But if I have to I will.

btw, here is the new log without the deletion of the
