Hello, and thanks for being here to help!
My computer recently had a "freak out" moment, where a fake anti-virus program took over. It took a few passes with Spybot and Malwarebytes to clear it all away, but I think it's all under control now.
I have a Hijackthis log to post, hoping someone can tell me if it's safe to go back to business-as-usual with my computer (online banking, etc).
Being new here, I'm not really sure where I should post it. Any suggestions would be great!
thank you!

Hi snowcherries

I suggest you post to the Am I Infected? What Do I Do? forum. However before you do so, please read the following article: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/41987/before-you-post-about-a-problem/
Once someone from the HJT Team has read your post they will be able to advise you of the best course of action.

If you think your computer may be infected, then it seems prudent to avoid any sensitive use of it until the problem is identified and the malware removed. Posting about your problem in the Am I Infected? Forum will allow knowledgeable people to begin the process of helping you (do NOT post a HJT log there, though).
