I Googled up the keyword "prunnet.exe" and learned from this community (and one other) that MalwareBytes takes care of this problem pretty efficiently.

So I ran MalwareBytes a few times between rebooting in safe mode. It reports me as being clean.
I also ran AVG and SpyBot a until nothing shows up.

I don't have any unwanted windows appearing out of the blue with links that don't work (I think I have to thank AVG and/or spybot, or maybe the links were just broken). Does malware become active only when I'm online? I would assume it would try to open the browser even if I'm phyiscally DISconnected.

I just want to confirm that my computer is indeed clean.

Unfortunately RSIT doesn't want to run on the (previously?) infected computer... it works on my not infected Vista... so maybe something still broken on it.

The error message is:

AutoIt Error

Error: Error parsing function call.

I downloaded HJT from download.com and compared it to the partial log RSIT created. RSIT still provides more information... but only a few lines more.

Perhaps it would be better if I did a Kaspersky Online Scan? I will post the incomplete RSIT log for now and do the scan when I return from work tomorrow. I apologize in advance if the log ends up being useless. I also thank you in advance for spending your time with my troubles.
