    Like RBS said, try reading the READ: HOWTO posts. There's one entitled, "How to Remove Hacktool.Rootkit."

    If remon.sys is there, then it means that you are infected. Did you try rebooting in safe mode to clean up the hidden/system files?

    Unable to find files given in How To's to remove hacktool.rootkit virus

    I tried everything in how to and also as suggested in the How to's there are no such fiiles in my system I am wondering as what to do That is why I have attached my logs so that you can suggest something after going through them

    Of course there are no such files on your system; Hacktool.Rootkit is a rootkit, meaning that it hides evidence of the break-in. If your computer can't see the files, then it can't delete them.
    Your HJT log shows no symptoms of a Hacktool.Rootkit infection, and it wouldn't help even if it did, so I would retry the HOWTO to the letter.
