    I don't see any malware in your HJT log. You do have a lot of programs running in the background that could be started manually.
    Check your enabled services (type services.msc in the run box, click ok) with the list Blackviper suggests:
    http://www.blackviper.com/WinVista/servicecfg.htm

    Rescan with HJT, check this item:
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    Close all windows except HJT, then click 'fix checked'. Exit HJT and reboot/restart your computer.

    The windows search indexing service dominates hard drive activity. There were times when my orange activity light would always be lit. As for noise, what type of hard drive does the system have?
