    well there are some things that I would address; two types
    A) bogus and B) unnecessary

    B) C:\WINDOWS\System32\snmp.exe ; I don't have one on XP/home sp2 and
    if a true MS product, you don't need it running --
    SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol). SNMP is used to perform remote administration of network hardware such as Routers and Hubs.

    B) should be deleted
    O2 - BHO: Windows Live Sign-in Helper
    O2 - BHO: (no name)
    O3 - Toolbar: &Google caused me all kinds of problems
    O17 (two) entries

    disable startup
    O20 Winlogon Notify: igfxcui

    A) real issues
    O4 - (two of these!) HKLM\..\Run: [startkey] C:\WINDOWS\svchort.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DRam prosessor] dll.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [DRam prosessor] dll.exe

    you have within your log, evidence of a worm "C:\Program Files\Network Monitor\netmon.exe"(MIMAIL-A WORM, W32/codbot-A backdoor) and Troj/Ciadoor-M and more i would suggest that you do go HERE follow all the instructions, then do another scan and post the hjt log, but you must first change the name of hjt! place hjt in it's own folder within my docs or programme files, there you MUST change the hjt to analyser 1991, as there are now bug that will hide from it.
    when you post your log do it as an attachment. look at, additional options and attach files, you will find these below the reply box
