You posted a scan log for ADWCleaner. I need to know if you let it delete everything it found - that would be the clean log AdwCleaner[C1].txt or [C2] etc. ADWCleaner would have rebooted the machine to finish the cleaning.
Were you able to run the Sophos Remediation tool or no? Are you running Bitdefender on the system normally (instead of Windows Defender?)
If you can't get the Sophos Remediation tool running, please download and run FRST (be sure to choose the correct bit depth for your system, 32 or 64).
Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Download

i wasnt able to run the SOPHOS remediation tool as i cant get online. i dont have Bitdefender on my computer. i only made a bitdefender rescue CD when instructed to. with the ADWcleaner i did clean everything it found.
I was wondering if it's possible for attackers to cling to your network and maybe even configuring routers settings so that they can silently see what your'e doing, and can I check for that?
