I recently received an email from my internet provider informing me that one of my network devices has a spy bot running. My router is password protected. Otherwise, I have a PC, a Mac Book Pro, an LGG4, an iPad Air and a Motorola Droid  attached as permitted devices. All have some form of malware and anti virus and all are pass word protected, for what little good that does. I change passwords regularly, but probably not enouth.
Yes, it's probably a fairly simple fix, but it's beyond my meager skills. I regularly run and update SpyBot and Avast on the PC, which is the most likely culprit other than the phones, and have seen some odd things, mostly files not being able to be accessed for scanning. I'm attaching the log file from the recent run of HiJack This.
Thanks for your assistance.

​If you still need help- we use a FRST log nowdays, not HJT. Usually Iam only on this site once or twice a day so you may not get a reply back from me until the following day.

​See link below, you can start at step 6 for directions downloading and running FRST:
