    I have had an ongoing problem with two PC's on a home network. I am being told by a coworker that my machine is infected with spyware/adware. I am running Zone Alarm pro for my firewall, Norton Internet Security 2005, and Adaware, but I still cannot get rid of the problem. Norton and Adaware are telling me that I am fine. I have attached a copy of my Hijack this log. Any help is greatly appreciated.
