MSN Messenger trying to send messages by itself

  1. My daughter's computer has started trying to send messages to her MSN friends - independant of her actions.
    I have run an AVG (free)scan and a Windows defender scan - with nothing detected.
    I have done some searches and found that I should run HJT to get more info and post it here. I attach a hijackthis log collected in normal operating mode.

    I have looked at it but don't know enough to pick out the offender(s).

    Can anyone help?
    Best regards

    Excellent fix, it has cleaned up even more on the laptop and proven that i had previously fixed it i think (the files to kill were not foiund).
    I think either SuperantiSpyware or MalwareBytes sorted me out.
    All good stuff added to the armory though.

    thankyou very much for your help.
