That does not make sense as all OTL does at that stage is reset the restore points and clear the temporary files

What are your current problems ?

They sound like system files

We will now confirm that your hidden files are set to that, as some of the tools I use will change that
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Do not show hidden files and folders.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.

i may have screwed this up
first  :OTL (cleanup)
second :ComboFix Uninstall attempt(was not found)
the cleanup may have flushed it
i'm sorry ... for wasting U're time ...
i'm sure U have better things to attend to ...
do U want me to reinstall ComboFix
so i can uninstall it correctly ?
