Hi MatadorM83,

I can't yet say whether the problems you are experiencing are caused by malware, if they are we will get to the bottom of it, if not then I'll advise you on getting further help.

You appear to have no antivirus software running. Without antivirus software your computer is very vulnerable and can easily be infected at any time so it it is essential you have one active at all times.

There are several free packages available, two of the most popular are here:
Antivir: http://www.free-av.com/
AVG Antivirus: http://free.grisoft.com/doc/1

If you have no antivirus program then download and install one immediately, update the definitions and set it to update automatically. Then do a full system scan and quarantine/delete anything it finds, and make a note of where the logfile is stored so you can post a copy in your next response.

Now open HijackThis, select Open the Misc Tools section
Next to the Generate StartupList log button, place a checkmark in the box labelled list also minor sections (full)
Then press the Generate StartupList log button and say Yes to the prompt
Save the StartupList log to your deskop and include a copy in your next response.
Now press Back and Scan and then Save log to create and save a new HijackThis log.

Once complete, please post the antivirus scan log, the uninstall list and a new HijackThis log.
