Welcome to TSG :)

Go to Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs
Uninstall these (if listed):

Ares
Kazaa Lite
SurfSideKick 2
ViewPoint Manager

Then download and run the following:

Ad-Aware SE: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

Install and run it. On the bottom right corner of Ad-Aware you will see an option called "Check for updates now", click on that and choose "connect". Download the updates. Next click on "Scan now" on the left side of Ad-Aware. Make sure that "Search for negligible risk entries" is crossed out and not ticked. Choose "Perform full system scan" and click "Next". After Ad-Aware scans your computer, Ad-Aware may find some bad files on your computer so make sure you tick them all and choose "Next". It will ask if you want to remove those items so just continue. After removing the items close Ad-Aware.

Reboot

SpyBot: http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

Install and run it. Choose "Search for updates". Next choose "Download updates". After that, choose "Search and Destroy" and click on "Check for problems". If Spybot finds any nasties on your computer, make sure that they are ticked and choose "Fix selected problems".

Reboot again

Move Hijack This out of the Temp folder. Have it in a permanent folder of your creation on the hard drive. Run it from there and post a new log (y)

I have already tried to uninstall SurfSideKick on add/remove programs and run SpyBot and AdAware. Am I doing something wrong or should I try something else? Thank you.

It does not appear that you have the current version of the removal programs

SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
SpyBot - After an update run immunize


HiJackThis.exe is in a temp folder and HAS to be in a permanent folder like C:\HJT

Make sure you have and are running the above versions with updates

Remove the programs that Cheese mentioned and run the above and then boot and post a new log
