I have something on my pc that I can not rid myself of. (I use XP Pro) I perform a dozen scans a day using everything that is recommended on here (along with a couple online sites that scan for free) and cannot get the crap off my system. I hope someone with a little knowledge of hijackthis (have posted log below) might be able to give me a few pointers.

Thanks ahead.
