Thanks for all your help so far, I was just about to tell you that I am giving up for the night so I'm glad you had to go anyways. As far as I can tell those services are stopped. When I click on them the only option is to start them, but it says they can not be started in safe mode. I'll try again tomorrow, but I think I might just end up backing up the files I need and just delete everything.
Do you have your vista disk?If so we can perform a repair install.But you may wait for the spyware people to help you it kinda sounds like you may have an infection.And from what I saw its probably from lime wire or one of thee similiar apps you have on your computer plus it is hard to help because Im limited in what I can ask you to do,in this forum.
I just was able to get rid of those services and I did the chkdsk you wanted me to do and I think everything was actually fixed! I am in normal mode right now and so far so good. Here is my most recent hijackthis log I just did:
Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4
Scan saved at 7:03:59 PM, on 10/27/2011
Platform: Windows Vista SP1 (WinNT 6.00.1905)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6001.18639)
Boot mode: Normal
If it ask to install a toolbar or google chrome decline.Also did you run the avg uninstaller?If not then please do so.
And it wouldnt hurt to run a quick scan with malwarebytes just make sure to update first.
