    Hello and welcome to TechSpot.

    It looks like you might have a lop infection.

    Please Download NoLop to your desktop from one of the links below...
    http://www.spywareedge.net/nolop/NoLop.exe
    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/...pmod;dl=item16

    First close any other programs you have running as this will require a reboot
    Double click NoLop.exe to run it
    Now click the button labelled "Search and Destroy"
    <<your computer will now be scanned for infected files>>
    When scanning is finished you will be prompted to reboot only if infected, Click OK
    Now click the "REBOOT" Button.
    A Message should popup from NoLop.
    If not, double click the program again and it will finish Please Post the contents of C:\NoLop.log along with a fresh HJT log

    --If you receive an error, "mscomctl.ocx or one of its dependencies are not correctly registered," please download mscomctl.ocx to your system32 folder then rerun the program.-- http://www.boletrice.com/downloads/mscomctl.ocx

    Now have HJT fix these entries:

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [itch type 16 team] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\cake soft itch type\book bags.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [road draw] C:\DOCUME~1\WAIHUN~1\APPLIC~1\FORDER~1\DVD OPTION START.exe

    Now go into C:\Documents and Settings\%your user name%\application data\forder~1 and delete DVD OPTION START.exe.

    Go into C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data and delete the folder cake soft itch type.

    Now read the Viruses/spyware/malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions to the letter, then post fresh HJT, Combofix, and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread. Also post here the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards :)

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name (not the administrator account). See how here. Then try fixing/deleting those items that you were unable to fix before.
