    Hi choiorg

    I could start reviewing your log but first

    When creating this log, did you follow through the 15 step removal instructions indicated by Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. It is helpful for you to walk through those instructions step-by-step to get things cleaned.. and finally produce a set of different logs which can all be posted in your message.

    Get rid of the viewpoint stuff if you dont use it, its classed as foistware,

    Finally, delete the following folders if they still exist:
    C:\Program Files\ViewManager\ <-- and delete this folder
    C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\ <-- and delete this folder

    You are infected, please do as LookinAround says and complete all the 15 steps posting your logs back in this thread, make sure that you set the AVG antispyware to quarantine the results.
