Hello,

First of all, you are still using a previous version of hijackthis..so please update your version by starting hijackthis,
click on the 'misc tools'>Check for update online. Download the new version (1.99.1), unzip it and make sure you put it in an permanent folder.
(If the update option doesn't work, please download your new version here

Uninstall next programs:

Spytech Software
WinTools
WebSeach Toolbar


Reboot afterwards.

Download and install CleanUp!
Run it and log off afterwards to finish its task.

Download the latest version of Ad-Aware:
http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download/

After installing AAW, and before running the program.
Please be sure to update the reference file following the instructions here:
http://www.lavahelp.net/howto/updref/

Reconfigure Ad-Aware for Full Scan:

Launch the program, and click on the Gear at the top of the start screen.

Click the 'Scanning' button.
Under Drives, Folders and Files, select 'Scan within Archives'.
Click 'Click here to select Drives + folders' and select your installed hard drives.

Under Memory & Registry, select all options.
Click the 'Advanced' button.
Under 'Log-file detail level', select all options.
Click the 'Tweaks' button.

Under 'Scanning Engine', select the following:
'Unload recognized processes during scanning.'

Hello,
Now some leftovers..

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

* Using Windows Explorer, locate the following folder and delete it if still present:

C:\Program Files\Spytech Software <== this folder

Reboot and post a new hijackthislog as a last checkup. :thumbsup:

That's a clean log. :thumbsup:

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Kaspersky online and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates, so visit asap http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ to install all the updates and the security patches, because your system is extremely vulnerable for the moment.
