    Please download and run the following programs:

    AD-AWARE

    Go here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
    and download Ad-Aware 6 Build 181

    Install the program and launch it.

    First in the main window look in the bottom right-hand corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------ON=GREEN

    From main window: Click Start then Activate in-depth scan (recommended)

    Click Use custom scanning options then click Customize and have these options selected: Under Drives and Folders put a check by Scan within archives and below that under Memory and Registry put a check by all the options there.

    Now click on the Tweak button in that same window. Under Scanning engine select Unload recognized processes during scanning and under Cleaning Engine select Let windows remove files in use at next reboot

    Click proceed to save your settings.

    Now to scan just click the Next button.

    When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

    Restart your computer

    SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY

    http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

    Open Spybot Search & Destroy (Click Start, Programs, Spybot S&D (Advanced Mode). Click online, Search for updates, Download all available updates. Close all Browser windows, Click ''Check for Problems''. Anything that needs to be fixed it will show in red and have a green check in the box to the left. Click ''Fix Selected Problems'', Then restart your computer.

    Then, after rebooting, please post another log and we’ll see what’s left to get rid of.

    Hi, I see the machine is using Keyboard Guardian,
    that is a keylogger. Just for general information:
    and, it apparently is being run from TEMP folder so it may disappear if you empty that, and certainly AAW should pick something up...I just wonder why it's there.
    If you installed it> you may need to put it somewhere. It will be detected and probably removed with most malware apps...unless they have excluded it from detections, I dont know for sure, but some have applied for that through Lavasoft....
    I see it costs $ so just letting you know about it...

    If it is something else....no problem.
