Hi and welcome to the Malware Removal forums.
My name is Vino Rosso - if it helps, you can call me Vino for short. I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems.

HijackThis logs can take a little time to research so please be patient and I'd be grateful if you would note the following:
  • I will working on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Finally, please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
1 - Install HijackThis
Download a copy of HJTsetup.exe from >here< and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click HJTsetup.exe to begin installation.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box, check the box to the left of "Launch Hijackthis" and then click Finish
  • When HijackThis has started, click on Do a system scan and save a log file
  • When Notepad opens, click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is NOT ticked. If it is then click on it to UNtick it.
  • Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Copy
  • Paste (Ctrl+V) the content with your next reply.
Do not try to fix anything yet! HijackThis shows lots of good files as well as bad.
