    First I have to thank you all for the advice you provide. I first noticed a problem when my Desktop icons disappeared. A file delete-fix recommended by Microsoft fixed that. I tried CA Internet Security, but it slowed my computer way down, so I uninstalled it. I may have eradicated the viruses/spyware on my own, with the software downloads reccommended here. HOwever, MY Adaware disappeared, (I may have done that with CCleaner) and I have trouble with running Superantispyware and AVG Antispyware Free. I tried uninstalling and re-installing, but both programs run overnight and don't seem to start their scans. I have an old toshiba/Win 2000 Pro, that is running Comodo Firewall, Mozilla Firefox, NoScript, Avast Antivirus, Trend Micro Hijack This, WinPatrol, nerAFT Cleaner, CCleaner, and Spywaredoctor-Free Trial. Speed is good and the computer is functioning "normally." I fear I may have just overdone it. Thanks for any help you can provide!
    Here is my latest HiJackThis scan:
