My laptop appears to have been infected by a Virtumonde Trojan. Spybot S&D consistently picks it up despite removing the files each time (and I've also done this with system restore off). I have also run adaware.
I have tried running various other scans (Virtumundobegone and vundofix) with no luck. It seems to be causing a few problems with my computer:
1. The Automatic Updates is off and I can't turn it back on
2. It is messing with IE security by changing privacy settings to "Accept All Cookies" every time I start it
3. It opens the web browsers when I'm online to some random website (which appears empty)

Attached is my HijackThis log.

Can anybody help, please?
