    I see you have Viewpoint installed...
    Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad". I suggest you remove the program now. Navigate to Start --> Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs and uninstall the following programs if present.

    Viewpoint
    Viewpoint Manager
    Viewpoint Media Player



    Then, please open HijackThis, and select Do a system scan only.

    Place a checkmark next to the following entry:

    O23 - Service: Viewpoint Manager Service - Viewpoint Corporation - C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Common\ViewpointService.exe

    Then, close all other open windows, leaving only HijackThis open, and select Fix checked.


    Delete the following folder (if present):
    C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\

    Restart your computer afterwards. Then post a fresh HiJackThis log
