HELP ME! I have spent the past 3 days reading everything I could find on removing this infection.
So now I'm posting this log in the hopes that I'll get someone to tell me what I have to do!!!
Any security experts good enough to tackle this one??? Here goes nuthin'...

I am running XP media center and need to know if I would lose all my recorded TV files if I were to do a "repair" or a reinstall.
If I am forced to manually remove the spyware (XP media repair or reinstall not an option w/o losing files), I have tried using both Ad Aware and SpyBot but the following still lingers after rebooting: (only SpyBot works during safe boot)

Virtumonde (doesn't matter how many times I try to erase this using SpyBot)

This is my HiJackThis logfile:

I have also tried using Kaspersky online scan but after loading up everything at 100%, a msg pops up and doesn't allow me to continue??!?!?!

I have also tried using McAfee Stinger and it seems it's not picking up anything, this normal???

Is Ad Aware supposed to work during a safe boot??? (doens't work - SpyBot works during a safe boot)
Does it matter if I'm using either program in normal or safe boot for more effectiveness???

I have tried BitDefender but it won't work because it says I need to uninstall my anti-virus software first to avoid conflict.
Do I really need to do this, or do I just turn off Trendcillin???

I keep seeing this "Critical Error - Cyber_____" popup window after bootup, this another fake msg???

Lately I just got a Generic Host Process for lWin32 services error msg, what does this mean???

I sometimes get this yellow system tray icon telling me how I need to download antivirus protection. (BS i know.)
I am still getting a "System Startup global entry value deleted msg from SpyBot. (entry runner1 C:\windows\mrofinus572.exe 61A847) What does this mean???

Is Trendcillin any good at all??? I need to update but it has expired, should I bother or switch over to another???

Is there the equivalent of Mr. Jack Bauer of CTU fame on BleepingComputer.com that can help advise me on this matter?

Thanks! *head spinning... about to pass out now*
