    Should you decide to that cleaning your system is the best option, please go to Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and follow the steps given.
    Do follow all the instructions exactly.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HijackThis, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread.
    Do not copy and paste your logs if not they will be removed.

    Do you have your Windows Installation disk, or can you borrow one that is your build? I would run 'repair console' that will reinstall any corrupt or missing files: but will maintain your programs. When the installation process gets to the 'partition' part: it will ask if you want repair, or do a clean install on that partition. Select the repair and follow.
