oh, firstly, hello. I get alot of help from your site, just loking through the forums. This is the first time I'm actually posting.. since I'm at the end of my rope..

Tonight I was surfing some sites, and my IE sudenly got very very low, and my computer sounded like it was processing way more than it shouldhave been. Well a few minutes later, Firefox opens on it's own and goes to some advertising site. Bleh! I figure.. did I do that accidentally? Sadly, no. Now every few minutes IE or Firefox will open to a seeming random advertising site.

I ran a complete scan with AVG, and it did find a trojan horse and a few other suspect things, which I thought I got rid of then. I restarted, and it started happening again with IE and Firefox.

So I did the HijackThis log.. and here it is.
