    The Ceement file is part of HP's Total Care Advisor software. Can't see anything there that looks suspicious so let CC Cleaner delete them as they are only temp files. Download free versions of Malwarebytes/Spybot etc and use to compliment your ant-virus.

    Thanks it makes sense now, that I didn't notice that until I updated Hp Support Assistant, and I got Malwarebytes alongside of MSE, thanks I appreciate it.
