    For several days (or maybe a few), AdAware (free) kept closing on start up with the typical message, something like "AdAware has encountered a problem and has closed unexpectedly. Click OK to send an error report". I'd send the error report, but I noticed that AdAware wasn't really closed. It was still in the showing up as being on, and I could easily open it to run quick scans.

    After maybe the third day, I ran full scans (as opposed to quick scans) of all my virus and spyware protection programs. All are free versions.

    AVGFree found nothing of importance.

    AdAware didn't find anything, either.

    But then Malwarebytes found Spyware.Passwords.Xgen and Malware.Trace. I removed both, and ran all three scans again. This time, nothing was found.

    However, my AdAware keeps shutting down on start up with the same message as before. I tried removing and then re-installing it, but it hasn't helped at all. What else could be wrong?

    I ran HijackThis and will paste the log below. Any ideas what could be wrong?
