    You really should have posted this in your existing thread, rather than starting a new thread. ;)

    Your HJT log is clean. However, you really should rename hijackThis.exe as some malware can hide from the HijackThis filename.

    Have HJT fix these inactive entries.

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {1485870A-9A20-35F5-86B5-42AF502C8B00} - (no file)

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

    You need to rename HijackThis.exe to Crusty.exe. This is because some malware can hide from HijackThis.exe. Follow these instructions in order to do so.

    Go to the C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe file and right click on HijackThis.exe. Choose rename. Click in the title box and hit the enter key to clear what`s there.

    Now type Crusty.exe into the title box and hit the enter key. Right click on the Crusty.exe file and choose "Send to desktop Create Shortcut".

    You can now close the HJT directory.

    please post a fresh HJT log just for a final check.
