Malware Issue?-"Your firewall..."

Hi. Attached is my HyjackThis file. When I log in a balloon from the lower right pops up and says something like:"You firewall may not be active" with a crimson red shield icon in the tray. This only just started happening yesterday. Along with this, the performance of doing nearly everything is very slow. I setup my computer such that I work from a limited permissions user and not from the Admin login. This is showing in both the limited user and Admin user logins. I ran Spybot before I took this Hyjack log and it came back saying that it did not find anything (I did update it before running it.) I ran Avast virus and it found nothing. When I try to run Ad-Aware, it doesn't come up and then an error message appears saying that another user is logged into it - this is confusing because there is no other user on. This is my personal computer. Thank you for your thoughts. Mike
