I'm running a Dell XPS with Windows XP (Media Center)

Over the last couple months, I had a couple viruses that I've taken care of (can't remember what they were), but my system is now acting oddly, and in some ways similar to how it was when it was infected before.

Some of the symptoms:
1) Red circle with a white X in the taskbar. Before, this would warn me that my computer is infected, but now just makes the "pop" sound without showing anything.
2) Random restarts, sometimes without warning, sometimes displaying a window that puts a 1 min. countdown until the computer shuts down (the window that can be halted with running the "shutdown -A" command)
3) Blank web pages popping up in a separate window when using the brower (Firefox)
4) Locked, blank desktop and (sometimes) locked task manager.

So far, I've run scans on the computer several times each with Ad-Aware (Free), AVG (Free) and Spybot Search & Destroy. Each time, even though a run was just completed, there are at least a dozen different infected files, security hazards or trojans. The one that seems to come up the most (and never gets deleted, even in Safe Mode) is something called Virtumonde.

I've run a Hijack This scan, with these results:
