But I thought it was strange that these had went unnoticed by my Microsoft Security Essentials and got through my Firewall. So to be sure nothing was left I ran MSE and went to check my Firewall. MSE was turned off and with a few attempts I got it running

Also an Error with SDWinSec.exe:
The description for Event ID 0 from source SDWinSec.exe cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.
If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.
The following information was included with the event:

The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer
for an upgraded BIOS. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.
