I have no hijackthis log due to the issue the user I"m helping is facing. any program that scans the computer and is commonly known (Hijackthis, RSIT, avast, avira, AVG, malwarebytes, spybot, combofix, smitfraudfix, vundofix....) will start scanning, and then quit with no prompt or warning. Trying to start the program again gives a permission error. The icon of the program will have changed to a generic square program icon.
I was able to run Spyware Terminator, though I don't like to due to its toolbar.
system: xp sp3
installed antivirus: Avast (scanner corrupted, uninstaller corrupted), Avira, Spyware Terminator/ClamAV
