Hi,

My computer was affected by some kind of virus and it was not letting me log on (I think it was because of some file I accidently downloaded on my desktop). So to remove it I booted by computer in safe mode with admin user and then deleted my user desktop files.
But I still think some malware has remained in my computer. Because I see some unrecognized processes running, and sometimes a program called Relevant Knowlegde running on the taskbard (which I never installed).

Below is my hijackthis log.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.
