Help!

I can't get rid of System Defragmenter. I tried the suggested fix of running Rkill followed by Malaware bytes Anti-Malware. It found some stuff and eliminated some of the pop ups, but I am still stuck with the following system problems:

1. System Defragmenter is still running in the system tray. It perfoms a "scan" when the computer starts and every now and then I get a message telling me I need to buy it. The constant system messages are gone, however.

2. My computer will work for a while and I can run programs, but after some time (10 min to half an hour) I get an error message "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encounterd a problem and needs to close" after which my system becomes unresponsive, and a hard reset is the only option.

3. Probably related to #2: I haven't been able to get the Gmer scan to finish. I tried it twice, and both times it went for half hour or more and then the system rebooted. Unfortunately I was not able to see what it was scanning when it rebooted or if there was any message.

DDS log follows. I will attempt to run Gmer once again after this post.
