This computer is running Windows XP Pro SP 2. AVG 8.5 free is running and when it scans it can find and clean virus infections. It has found and supposedly removed Vundo and My Web Search, among others.
When I installed Malware Bytes it ran the installer but at the very last it paused for about 5 minutes and then finally finished.
The same thing happened when I tried to install Spybot S&D. Teatimer is running and has blocked some malware from starting and accessing the internet.
When I try to run either MWB or Spybot the process can be seen running in Windows task manager. Then it just disappears and there is no error or any notation in the error logs.

HJT log follows:

I scanned the computer twice more with AVG 8.5, each time finding more problems and now MWB starts and cleaned about 400 files off. I haven't tried Spybot yet, there are still a couple of things that MWB hasn't finished cleaning yet.

Hello AGguitarman,

We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible.

Thank you for understanding.

Regards,

The weatherman

Fixed already. The computer had AVG Free on it and after I succeeded in getting it to update it finally scanned. Then I ran MWB and that fixed it to the point that I could install and scan with Spybot S&D. That finished cleaning it up.
