I recently have been battling a mix of malware/viruses on my computer. Also both my Firefox and IE browser kept getting hijacked.

Avast picked up Win32:CabMod.

MBAB picked up Packer Gen, Trojan Dropper, Vundo, Rouge Agent, Rootkit Dropper, Rootkit.TDSS, Spyware:Passwords, and few of the fake anti-spyware programs.

Super AntiSpyware found Rootkit: TDSS, Trojan.Agent/Gen-Cryptor[Egun], Trojan.Agent/CDesc [Generic], Trojan.Agent/Gen-Cryptor[Egun], Trojan.Dropper/UserInit-Fake.

Spybot found Fraud.AKMAntivirus2010Pro and Microsoft. WindowsSecurityCenter.FirewallBypass

After I removed these my system started crashing 1-3 times daily. The crash dumps ranged from a number of different issues, most relating back to my driver for my ethernet card. I never had any problem with system stability before the infections. I reinstalled the driver for my ethernet card and the problems continued. Then almost by magic, my system began crashing less and less. It went from 2-3 times a day to 1 every few days and now I've been up and running for at least a week.
I thought I was all set, since all of my scans with Avast, MBAB, SAS, and Spybot were coming back clean, but than I checked my processes and say about 15-20 wuauclt.exe's running. I was so bummed. I had heard good things about Hitman Pro, so I decided to try it out. It ended up finding 1 virus, and 9 malware infections. However since I ran that I haven't noticed any extra wuauclt.exe processes running.

After the first time I learned my lesson and won't jump to the conclusion that my pc is healed. I would be very appreciative of any help that I might get from you to examine my logs to verify that my PC has a clean bill of health...or if I should just format it since it was so badly infected.

Thanks in advance for any and all help,
