    8-step process

    If you will go to this techspot guide and perform the 8-step Spyware/virus removal guide, this should assist you with all insidious virus/spyware/malware related issues. http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html
    One may be tempted to bypass a process or two. I would recommend you resist that temptation.

    Regards.

    It would have been better if you had attached the Malwarebytes log. You should also run SuperAntispyware and attach log. But there some things we can work on in the current HijackThis log:

    Please re-open HiJackThis and scan.*Check* the boxes next to all the entries listed below:
    NOTE:
    The Adobe Reader is out of date You have v7, the latest is v9. Remove the following entries, install the latest version, v9.
    Your Java is out of date. You need to install v6u7. Remove the following:
    I am unable to verify this domain: Do you have any information on it? Is it your ISP. Do you have a link for it? IF it is NOT your ISP, remove the following:
    Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click *Fix Checked.*Close HiJackThis and reboot into Safe Mode:
    Start> Run> type in 'msconfig' without quotes> enter> Selective startup> Startup tab> UNCHECK every thing except the Network Associates (McAfee) antivirus and firewall> Apply> OK
    Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs> UNINSTALL Adobe v7 and Java.
    Start> Run> type in services.msc> find the following, right click on each> Properties> change the Startup type to Manual:
    After that, Reboot, and post a new HijackThis log here in a reply
    NOTE: you will get a nag message when you reboot. You can ignore it, check 'don't show this message again'> Close. stay in Selective startup.

    Adobe download: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
    A suggestion. With the reader on board, if you click on a PDF document, it will automatically open on the Adobe Program. If you need to use any of it's other features, manually open the program from All Programs. You don't need all those extra Toolbars, buttons and right click options. They cost you time and space.

    Java update: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
    Take care to note any 'extras' on either of the above. Uncheck them is any.
