  1. I don't even quite know what's wrong with this computer, but something is seriously messed up. Hoping I could get some answers with an analysis of this HJT log... Thanks. :)

    Hi :

    There appears to be 2 antivirus programs ( McAfee & AVG 7 ) running on this
    computer, a security no-no . One should be completely removed, including use
    of its "Removal Tool/Uninstallation Application" as soon as possible .
    The other Item I noticed is an outdated Adobe, a serious security risk .
    Recommend you uninstall "it" and seriously consider using the safer "Foxit
    Reader" .

    You need to remove one of your Anti-virus Programs.
    I you decide to stick with AVG update to 8.0.

    Too many unnecessary startup programs.

    Adobe acrobat reader should be update with the latest version.

    Delete these;
    Remove from startup;
    Your system is infected. I have posted what I could. I am not an expert at this so I will leave the rest to the expert.
