Hi and welcome to TSG,

I know it gets confusing because you were told to start a new thread before but that was because you posted your problem on the end of someone else's post.

Now you've started two new threads when you should have posted this log back to your other thread where you were receiving help, here:

http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?t=221137

This way it's less confusing for those who are trying to help you.

There are several security issues in your log so I will request that the threads be combined and moved over to Security.

Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

Restart to safe mode.

How to start your computer in safe mode

First in safe mode click on My Computer then go to View > Folder Options. Click on the "View" tab and make sure "Show all files" is ticked and uncheck "Hide file extensions for known file types". Click "Like Current Folder" then click "Apply" then "OK"

Now find and delete:

The C:\PROGRAM FILES\STC folder
The C:\Program Files\SAVE folder
The C:\Program Files\Common Files\slmss folder
The C:\WINDOWS\mwsvm.exe file
The C:\WINDOWS\fash.exe file
The C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\INSTALLER.EXE file

Now navigate to the C:\WINDOWS\TEMP folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select all then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

To start in safe mode go to Start > Run and type in msconfig. Click OK.

In the System Configuration Utility, click "Advanced."

In the Advanced Troubleshooting Settings dialog box, check "Enable Startup Menu".

You will be prompted to restart the computer. Click Yes. The computer will restart in Safe mode. (This can take several minutes.)

To return to normal you will have to go back into msconfig and repeat those steps and remove the check by "Enable Startup Menu".
