Hello and Welcome to Malware Removal.

I will look through the logs you posted, check with my mentor, and return with a fix for your problems. While I am doing that, please go to http://www.windowsupdate.com and get all critical updates except SP2. Once you are clear of infection, then you can install SP2.
