Sorry to inform you that this is an extremely dangerous virus. It will allow another machine Complete access to yours. That means ALL your data,account numbers and passwords. EVERY keystroke you make is available to them.
If you keep any important data or financial informaton on it,it has probably been taken.
If the case is that you have sensitve data on it then you should disconnect it from the internet and completely format the drive.
You can go through the HiJackThis Log process and clean the machine of the malware files. BUT that is still NO guarantee that this PC can ever be trusted for security again. Thier is no way to be certain the malware hasn't compromised the system's security.
You have to make a decision based on that . Consider what this machime is used for and what will it be used for.
Please read this:When should I re-format?

If you would prefer to do the cleaning please follow these instructions.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
