    Well, going by your HJT logfile, everything looks OK. Im not sure if you are running in selective startup or not though. If you go to Start-->Run--->type "msconfig" (without the quotes) it will bring up the M$ config utility. Please make sure "normal startup" is ticked. If its not, please do so then submit another HJT log.

    HJT looks clean. If you'd care to run one more scan jsut to be certain, you can try combofix. Get it here:
    or here:

    When saving combofix to your PC, rename it to so malware won't disable it. Launch combofix (now titled, allow it to download and install the Recovery Console if it prompts you. Once the scan starts, DO NOT TOUCH YOUR PC, clicking anywhere while combofix is running is enough to make your system become non-responsive. Be forewarned that combofix will make your desktop dissapear and will also reboot your PC as needed. This is normal.

    Once combofix has run, post its logfile here, if you like. If not, you should be all set.

    Looks like combo found the remenants of the SKYNET virus. Hopefully it took care of the issue.

    If you like, run HJT and MBAM again and post those logs here one more time.
