Welcome to Bleeping Computer, please be sure you have read and followed the
Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log, Instructions for receiving help in cleaning your computer http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
All advice given is taken at your own risk.

I apologize for the wait, if your issues are not resolved, read the instructions posted above and then follow the directions below. If you no longer need help, I would appreciate a quick post letting me know so I can close your topic.

1) You are running two antivirus programs at the same time and this is not a good thing. They conflict with each other and you will be less safe than if you ran one good program and maintained it properly.

"Microsoft recommends that you have only one anti-virus program installed on your computer."

http://www.smartcomputing.com/editorial/ar...38s07/38s07.asp

Symantec AntiVirus
AVG8

(choose one and uninstall the other)

2) Once that is done, post a new HijackThis log using the copy and paste method described in the instructions, do not quote, code or attach logs unless I request it.

Thanks
