Hi SOTY,Welcome.
First and most important
two backdoor trojans .. Your PC security IS compromised. Backdoor Trojans may be instructed to send, receive, and delete files, Steal confidential financial data from the computer, log activity on the computer and Send that HOME to a malicious source. Passwords,credit card numbers,banking can all be taken. You should change these things.
I have recently learned that you may not even be able to be completely sure they are gone with out a reformat of the drive.
But before you do that, Let the Experts at the HJT Team look at the HiJack log

It would be easier if you just saved the hijackthis log on a floppy and then posted it from another computer. Make sure you post the logs in the hijackthis forum and not in this one or in this topic.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
