Please help - I have installed the following on a PC that had only Norton AV, was out of date and infected with all kinds of nasties.

Spyware Blaster
Spyware - Search & Destroy
Grisoft AVG

I have resolved the problems thrown up, including Messenger Plus' sponsor software. But there is one last thing - an annoying toolbar that opens the first time IE is launched. You can click X to get rid of it but its not ideal. I believe its called the LOP toolbar and when clicked it takes you to a page of the Open Web Search variant. It doesnt appear to interfere in any other way now that the above has been installed.

I will post the Hijack This log and a picture of it as well hopefully

Hello Stephen R.

I've split off your HJT log from your post here, and moved it to the "HijackThis Logs and Analysis" forum.
That is the proper forum for it.
Here's a link to your log:
