I don't know what's wrong, specifically, I just have a feeling something's not right. Recently got rid of a Bitcoin hijack, and in the last few minutes fully uninstalled Flash and Java after a hunch which turned out to be accurate (had to manually delete a few Flash files because they were under the control of an unknown user). Attached is my HijackThis log, would appreciate someone looking it over and giving me some advice as to my situation. Got a lot of (missing files) and Unknown Users.
