I have installed the anti-malware program on my notebook, ran the program and showed 4 infections. I removed it but when I rebooted, the infections reappeared and in spite of my scans and removals, they kept persisting. What is "malware.trace"? BTW, my log date is wrong - was not able to check. Please help. Thanks.
