Post the Avira log - let me see what it found, it may just be cookies, which you needn't worry about.

Comodo has to 'learn' your preferences. Once you allow a trusted application, you check to always allow that application - then it wont ask again. Go to the Comodo Forum and read the FAQ - lots of very useful information there on how to correctly use the firewall

Hi, Those are legitimate files that are included in your hp installation files. You may want to restore them from the Avast quarantine and place them on the exclusion list so they won't be detected in the future. Avast merely flagged them based on heuristics, meaning they have a pattern similar to some malware files. It's what's known as a false positive.

OK, thank you for that information. I have just ignored the rest of the alerts I got because the virus program detected it again. One last question. My paypal account was access by a third party when I caught the virus because I logged in when the virus was on my computer and affecting my searches and browser related activities. How do I know that when I enter personal information, that it will be secure and it wont get hijacked? I just want to make sure my computer is clean because my personal and financial information is scary for someone else to access without me knowing. Thanks for your time.

Hi, It is impossible to guarantee that you will not get hacked again. From my experience, your computer appears to be clean. You have an antivirus installed. You have reformatted, so anything that was on your computer should now be gone.

There is no way to prevent this type of thing from happening again for certainty, all you can do is be careful about what sites you visit and what you download

You may wish to consider a third paty firewall:

FREE FIREWALLS


I can also help with these other recommendations:


Below I have included a number of recommendations for how to protect your computer against malware infections.
  • Keep Windows updated by regularly checking their website at :
    http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
    This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer.
  • SpywareBlaster protects against bad ActiveX, it immunizes your PC against them.
  • SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts. Make sure you are only running one real-time anti-spyware protection program ( eg : TeaTimer, Windows Defender ) or there will be a conflict.
  • Make Internet Explorer more secure
    • Click Start > Run
    • Type Inetcpl.cpl & click OK
    • Click on the Security tab
    • Click Reset all zones to default level
    • Make sure the Internet Zone is selected & Click Custom level
    • In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls) to "Prompt", and ("Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe") to "Disable".
    • Next Click OK, then Apply button and then OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • ATF Cleaner - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.
  • MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites and other bad sites. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer, meaning it will be difficult to infect yourself in the future.
  • WOT, Web of Trust, warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware or send spam. Protect your computer against online threats by using WOT as your front-line layer of protection when browsing or searching in unfamiliar territory. WOT's color-coded icons show you ratings for 21 million websites, helping you avoid the dangerous sites:
    • Green to go
    • Yellow for caution
    • Red to stop
    WOT has an addon available for both Firefox and IE
  • For Firefox, I highly recommend this add-on to keep your PC even more secure.
    • NoScript - for blocking ads and other potential website attacks
  • Keep a backup of your important files - Now, more than ever, it's especially important to protect your digital files and memories. This article is full of good information on alternatives for home backup solutions.
  • ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed. The standard registry backup options that come with Windows back up most of the registry but not all of it. ERUNT however creates a complete backup set, including the Security hive and user related sections. ERUNT is easy to use and since it creates a full backup, there are no options or choices other than to select the location of the backup files. The backup set includes a small executable that will launch the registry restore if needed.
  • Please read these useful guides How did I get infected in the first place?
