Good Afternoon,

Been having a TON of issues with malware and trojans, ran hijackthis several times and today finally got something that I don't recognize and don't want to delete as it is a system file.

Also have been seeing a svchost file in task manager that ranges in CPU usage anywhere from 50 - 80% at all times. Have run MBAM, F-secure and ESET online scanners and Symantec Anti-virus, each have found several different infections. However, everytime I have to reboot because the system froze up, I get more and more attacks. Whenever I open IE, a second "hidden" IE opens that I can see in task manager but not as a window. Had to send this from my work computer as my home computer wouldn't allow me to submit to this forum or to send emails.

PLEASE tell me how to clean this infernal machine so we don't get redirects or pop-ups in IE or the continuous malware/spyware attacks.

Here is the hijackthis log:
