Hello Guys,
I ve recently had to format my computer. I m running windows xp sp1 now. I downloaded avast! 4.8 home edition and advanced windowscare v2 personal and noticed that my computer was infected within 15 mins of going online. avast and windows care did their job prefectly and i believe my computer is free from any virus or malware. Even after running avast and windows care i could not access task manager, regedit etc. I googled and managed to sort these issues without making any changes to any registry keys but i keep getting the following message at startup

Windows cannot find 'c:\windows\system32\drivers\prdmgr.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search.

i ve pasted the hijack this log at the end of the message.
Thanks in advance.
