    Hi startfire_ren and welcome to techspot. =)

    I suggest you do the following before doing anything else.

    Important: Please read this thread HERE before deciding if you should CLEAN or FORMAT your system

    Should you decide to that cleaning your system is the best option, please go to Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and follow the steps given.
    Do follow all the instructions exactly.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HijackThis, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread.
    Do not copy and paste your logs if not they will be removed.

    Our experts here will tend to your queries thereafter.

    Also, please provide the results of the Antirootkit scan


    Regards,
    momok =)
