Hi everyone! I've never posted on this site, so first of all I want to say hello and to thank you in advance for your help.
My PC has become very slow and often freezes (even five-six times per minute). Avira detects some malware (TR/Dropper Gen...only, I'm afraid there is much more than this!), but it can't eliminate it. I have already started the pc in safe mode and performed an unsuccessful scan with Malwarebytes. No malware was found.
Then I followed the steps suggested in the 'Preparation guide for use before using malware removal tools and requesting help'. Unfortunately DDS doesn't seem to work, and the gmer scan leads to the Blue Screen of Death! Posted Image
The only diagnostic tool which seems to work is Hijackthis, so I am posting the logfile in attachment.

I really hope you give me some advice...Thank you!
