My laptop must be either mega infected or just completely broken :-(
It's recently started blue-screening, shutting down without notice, not recognising my USB devices or media cards (via laptop card reader), and giving me missing .dll file messages. I have pop-up sites galore going on too. It even stops typing half way through things. The list is endless
I already had Spybot installed and it picked up that Virtumondo thing I've seen mentioned.
I can't make head nor tail of my HiJack This log.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

You definately have some unwanted guests in there. It sounds like you definately have a hacker!!

You tube have lots of people showing how to find out if your computer is being hacked.

Make sure that you have NOTHING else open and if you can do this in safe mode, then great!
After you have done that, do a complete scan of your computer using AVG.
