I have run Avast scan, Adaware 2008 scan, SpyBot Search and Destroy, deleted temporary internet files, etc. I have attached my hijack this log. I have a trojan that is killing me when I try to do anything on the internet. Please help as I run a small business from this PC and need a fix soon. Much appreciated. Thanks.

(I posted in the operating system for XP Pro/Home by accident first so if a moderator sees this please delete that post. Thanks.)

Also, I got the Hijack log from one user profile on the computer. There are two profiles, both with administrative rights. Does it matter which one I am logged into when I run the HijackThis app to get the log?

When running Adaware, SpyBot, etc, I did it from one user profile. Does it matter which user profile it is run from? Thanks.

Another strange thing I notice is that Windows Automatic Update cannot be turned on. When I try turning it on it tells me to go to the cpanel and do it. When I go this route, it does not work either... strange.

I resolved this myself and a moderator can close it. Here are the tools I used.

HijackThis
CCleaner
ComboFix
SDFix
SuperAntiSpyware
SpyBot Search and Destroy
Avast Virus Scan
~Disk Cleanup

CCleaner, ComboFix, and SDFix were run in SafeMode. After running these tools, some of them more than once, I was finally able to rid my PC of all issues. I hope this can help someone else. Thanks.
