I had just installed avg 8 free edition and got two virus warnings LOP Kriv[1]and,this one, PUP,which said unsafe
HIJACK TOOL AB. I had been reading your topic,and I had downloaded malware bytes,Windows defender,and in the topic
you had suggested downloading combo fix,and the corresponding window's download, I then ran the combofix.and saved the log file (not to post until asked.) I noticed that you had also mentiond a hijack file? but I haven't done anything else.
Funnily enough, when I ran combofix, I went back to the quarantined viruses in avg, had gone.
So where to from here? I would appreciate your help

Please note the message text in blue at the top of this forum.

You should not be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Further, ComboFix logs are not to be posted outside the HijackThis forums.

I went back to the quarantined viruses in avg, had gone.

Please clarify. Are you saying the quarantined files were gone or did you delete them?

Did you rescan with AVG? Is it still finding malware? If you did not rescan, please do so in "Safe Mode" and let us know what was found.
