Yes It is part of Microsoft.
Just 2 things to do to clean up a bit.
Great news !
Your log now appears to be clean.
Please do these in the order I suggest!
Delete the S&D fix from your desktop.
Go to start > run and copy and paste this in the field:
Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /
Then hit enter.
This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the
system/hidden files and resets System Restore again.
A few things to help with possible threats
These are optional . But will help protect you further.

Over 4,000 fake bank and credit sites.

Download and Install a HOSTS File
A Hosts file is a plain text file which prevents your computer from connecting to malware and spyware sites by redirecting the connection request to 127.0.0.1, which is your local address. If you use a proxy server, or if you are on AOL, be sure to read the special instructions.
You can download the MVPS Hosts File and see a HOSTS file tutorial here :
