The only option I will recommend is this one,as removing the wrong item with that tool can render your PC unbootable.

For others reading this thread. Why did boopme answer as he did?

HijackThis is an advanced enumerator (similar in some respects to a registry editor) that is used to display certain areas of the Windows registry where the majority of malware reside. HijackThis will scan these areas of your system and then create a log to help diagnose the presence of undetected malware in known hiding places. Using HijackThis requires advanced knowledge about the Windows Operating System. Most of the log entries are required to run a computer and removing essential ones can potentially cause serious damage such as loss of Internet connectivity or problems with your operating system which could preventing it from starting. HijackThis relies on trained experts to interpret the log entries and investigate them in order to determine what needs to be fixed.

Online HijackThis analyzers work in a similar manner but rely on the user's ability to interpret the results and determine what needs to be fixed. However, they often provide misleading and/or questionable results. In my experience, they DO NOT always identify all the malware or all the files properly. They sometimes list legitimate files as bad and bad files as legitimate. They sometimes show entries with no file (file missing) as bad when that is not always the case. Although these sites are open to the public, the user needs to know what they are doing and how to research the displayed log entries before using the original HijackThis application to fix anything.

If you do not have advanced knowledge about computers or training in malware investigation, you should NOT fix anything with these analyzers without consulting a expert as to what to fix. Using this tool incorrectly could adversely impact your system.
