2 Recurring Registry Data Infections that Malware can't fix?

Unread postby Astracar » September 2nd, 2009, 2:39 am

(My OS is Windows XP SP2)

Two days ago, I opened a webpage and an AVG window opened to warn me of infections. Before 20 seconds was up, I had six such warnings and I shut down my system. When I rebooted, I ran AVG (which found nothing) and went back online only to find my browser (Firefox 3.0.13) was incredibly slow. I rebooted and got a blue screen flicker before my system rebooted itself. After several more blue screens, I was able to get an email out to some friends who pointed me to Malware. I ran the program and deleted several items listed. I rebooted and ran Malware (1.40) again to find two infections. I ran Malware again and when I rebooted this morning they were still there.

I don't know if these items are Windows or not but my browser still seems to be slower than before I opened that webpage. I then found your site and loaded Hikackthis (2.0.2).

Here's the two files that Malware keeps finding:
Registry Data Items Infected:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv\ImagePath (Hijack.WindowsUpdates) -> Bad: (%fystemroot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) Good: (%SystemRoot%\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\BITS\ImagePath (Hijack.WindowsUpdates) -> Bad: (%fystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) Good: (%SystemRoot%\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

And the Hijackthis log:
