    Really you had lots of Malwares (not "a" virus)

    Seeming you have Symantec, I think it's best I advise you to remove it (fully un-install it) Then use the free Avira instead

    Put it this way. Symantec (Norton) did not save you this time (well it never does actually)

    Uninstall Symantec
    Install Avira
    Run a full Antivirus scan
    Update Malwarebytes
    Run another full Malwarebytes scan
    Then provide the logs (If you still want to, ie it'll probably be resolved ;) )

    It is running a little quicker and has also supposedly deleted multiple cases of malware, but i still think there are problems.

    here is the latest HJT log where i hope they can be identified.

    Thanks for your help

    lol :) This computer really needs an overhaul


    Remove (tick and fix)
    Decide if you want remote access starting on your computer (who would?)
    And if you don't, uninstall LogMeIn program

    But there is no use me continuing with BitComet.exe installed (and running!)
    Especially with remote access enabled!

    You also have a whopping 40 things starting with Windows (not including extra services, ie another 15 !!)

    Really it's not a safe and well maintained computer
    Start uninstalling things you don't need anymore
    Open programs that have started, and try to locate and turn off autostart (not including Antivirus and firewall of course)
    Even use Startup Control Panel and untick anything (look at all tabs in that program) and mostly everything can be disabled (ie untick)

    Then you will see how fast your computer actually is !

    I took care of many of my start up programs, How does it appear in terms of malware and any other vulnerabilities you see?

    Thanks

    I would also suggest removing FreeRAM XP Pro (most of these programs take up memory to run - check in Control Panel, if it's above 4 meg disable it) I'd uninstall it actually.

    Also this one is very suspicious, best to remove
    I've helped all I can. On a log I normally wouldn't even look twice at
