    Your hjt log doesn't look too bad but you have no firewall active!!!! You should activate windows firewall or download a firewall program!!!!

    First, move the HiJackThis file to C:\Program Files\HiJackThis (create it if you don't have a folder for it)

    Rename the hijackthis.exe program to another name like HiJackThis1991.exe or a different name then post a new log. Some malware hides itself from the original name.

    You might as well download a good firewall now, since windows only protects you from half the threat. Download Kerio Personal Firewall or ZoneAlarm Free

    In addition to the advice given by N3051M, it appears you`re friend is running more than one antivirus programme. This is not recommended, will slow the system down and can cause conflicts.

    You should uninstall one of them. Personally I recommend your friend keeps AVG and get rid of McAfee.

    Post a fresh HJT log as well as an AVG Antispyware log.
