OK, my dad's computer is running XP SP3. It has a firewall, antivirus and the normal protection. He told me a week ago (When I got back from holiday) that his computer was doing weird stuff and could I look at it. I checked his processes using Task Manager and I found that it was infected with a.exe, b.exe and msa.exe I also found that it played random sounds, such as clicking noises (like clicking a link), random radio or TV show audio and also it opens up pop-ups.

Using my antivirus, it apparently got rid of a.exe. But b.exe and msa.exe is still active. When I used removal instructions from other websites, it doesn't work as there is apparently no trace of either of them in my registry. So I have no idea what to do. I have HJT, so here is my log.
