I notice a lot of unfamiliar program files running in the background when I hit ALT=CONT-DEL before running defrag. The PC is slowing down considerably, particularly as the day goes on, usually resulting in an error message that the program will be shut down and I get bumped off the internet. Frustrating.

Can you please review my Hijack this log and give me any suggestions/advice?

Just a few left:

Make sure "show hidden files" is checked in Folder options > View

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

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {DC8F4420-BD57-11D7-8738-0030BD1EA13C} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SYNCHUI.DLL

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RunWindowsUpdate] C:\WINDOWS\UPTODATE.EXE

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [3Q9QZFM3F4DTYZ] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Avcyl.exe

Restart to Safe Mode: press f8 on startup and select Safe Mode from the boot menu.

In Safe Mode delete:

The C:\WINDOWS\UPTODATE.EXE file
The C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Avcyl.exe file

Go here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ and download Adaware 6

Install the program and launch it.

I strongly recommend that you read the help file to familiarize yourself with the program.

Before running the scan look at the top of the main window and you will see a Gear Icon. This is where you configure the settings. Click on that and then in the next window that pops up click on the "Scanning" tab on the left side. 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.
The click on the "Tweak" tab and under "Scanning engine" put a check by "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then......under "Cleaning engine" put a ckeck by "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot" then click "Proceed"

Next in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on "Check for updates now" and get the latest referencefiles.
After getting the latest referencefiles you are ready to scan.

Click "Start" and in the next window make sure "Active in depth scanning" is checked then click "Next" and the scan will begin.

When it is finished let it fix everything it finds.

Restart your computer.

Then go here http://spybot.eon.net.au/index.php?lang=en&page=download and download Spybot.

Install the program and launch it.

Before scanning press "Online" and "Search for Updates" .

Put a check mark at and install all updates.

Click "Check for Problems" and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds.

Restart your computer.

Be sure and take advantage of the "Immunize" feature in Spybot.

Finally go here http://www.net-integration.net/cgi-bin/forum/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=38;t=3051 for info on how this happens and how to help prevent future attacks.
On this page you will find a link to Javacool's SpywareBlaster. Get it and check for updates frequently.
The Immunize feature in Spybot used in conjunction with SpywareBlaster and weekly scans with Spybot and Adaware will go a long way toward keeping you spyware free.

Important!: ALWAYS check for updated detections and referencefiles before scanning with Spybot and Adaware. And be sure to check for updates to SpywareBlaster on a weekly basis.

All went smoothly until I tried to restart in Safe Mode. Not able to do it with f8 key or Ctrl key.
Is this a critical step? Any other ideas to get into Safe mode?

Yes this is a critical step.

See here http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406 for an alternative method to start in safe mode.

Since you have restarted without deleting those files run HJT again to verify that these have not returned;

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RunWindowsUpdate] C:\WINDOWS\UPTODATE.EXE

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [3Q9QZFM3F4DTYZ] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Avcyl.exe

If they have fix them again with HJT and restart to safe mode and delete the afore mentioned files.
