Luckily I regained control of my computer somehow. Last week I updated to Norton Antivirus 2011, I've been having nothing but problems since then. Last night, something new popped up on my toolbar, I clicked wanting to find out what it is (I hadn't had any problems with spyware, have been diligent with spybot and ad-aware. My computer immediately shut down and restarted and I couldn't open any programs, Norton wouldn't start up, and I couldn't really do much of anything. I tried restarting again and same thing. Tried in safe mode, same thing. Called tech support at Norton, 3 hours later, nothing. Supervisor calls me back about 6. Somehow in all of those restarts, I started running programs again, and Norton Tech Support deleted Ad-Aware, HiJackThis, and Spybot. This afternoon I put them back. Bad idea? I ran Hijack this and what follows is the log, any assistance and guidance will be appreciated at this point. I don't want to have another issue like this. Guess I will finally have to go get that backup drive...

Update: Deleted Ad-Aware again, had similar problem again. Still have HijackThis, and installed Malwarebytes. Was trying to install RootKitRevealer but having difficulties.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
