Ok so Iv previously ran (updated I might add) Spyware Terminator, and MalwareBytes' Anti Malware already with no results. Often times I keep getting in my task manager iexplorer.exe, Seaport.exe, wltuser.exe, and one thats completely boggled my mind 4m4s5C1M.exe. They return everytime I end the task. Iv tried everything that I can think of to no avail. Anyhow, the moment of truth...

Here is my HijackThis report....

Hello HardKoreZ,

:step1:
I notice there are signs of one or more P2P (Person to Person) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

uTorrent

Please note that as long as you are using any form of Peer-to-Peer networking and downloading files from non-documented sources, you can expect infestations of malware to occur
Once upon a time, P2P file sharing was fairly safe. That is no longer true. This practice may be the source of your current malware infestation.

Since we find the nature of P2P programs counter productive to restoring your PC to a healthy state, we ask that you remove P2P file sharing programs prior to our providing you with malware removal assistance.

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs -> uninstall uTorrent or any varitation of it.

:)
I see that you have no Anti-Virus program ("AV") present on your system.
Please install an Anti-Virus program.
AntiVir® -or- Avast are good FREE Anti-Virus programs.
Never run more than one Anti-Virus scanner on your system at a time! Having more than one AV running will likely cause your system to become unstable and seriously decrease the reliable detection of any malware.
After installing the AV program, have it perform a complete scan, and let it delete everything it finds.


:thumbup2:
Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from HERE or from HERE

Double-click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware; then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform full scan"; then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad. You may be prompted to Restart (See Extra Note).
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

:step4:
  • Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt will be maximized and info.txt will be minimized)
Post back with:
RSIT log.txt
RSIT info.txt
MBAM log
