Backdoor.bot - 24 infections? Am I clean yet?

After an overnight scan Thurs night, my log file reported 24 infections of backdoor.bot and one other one, but I didn't write them down, just clicked 'remove' as I thought I would read them in the log file. Then MB wouldn't launch anymore, giving me a runtime 453 error. Yestrday I worked with the forum helpers to get MB unloaded and reloaded again, and have run two scans that both come back with no malicious items found (latest results posted below). However, I still have questions about what, if any damage was done by the backdoor.bot trojan in my system. I posted these questions, and was advised by noknojon to start a new thread here so you could analyze logs from the last month in my system to see if any damage was done. I appreciate your help - don't want to use the computer on any password protected sites yet, not sure if any of my personal info was taken.... thanks in advance! Lisa

1) Since I completely removed the old version of MB, how do I find out what the malicious items were that were found in last night's scan?

2) How do I know if they were false positives or if a backdoor virus really had infeced 24 files?

3) how do I know if the backdoor virus hijacked my computer, is taking personal information, etc? How do I know I am safe to use my computer and enter passwords, etc again?

From noknojon in yesterday's thread: If you now follow the directions left by Forefox , the Experts can review your system and see if any infections are still there , or if traces of the previous infection have caused/left any internal problems - The experts may ask for logs that review the last month of activity in your system , as they are still there -
