    I can start you off, but another helper will have to help you run the additional programs. Unfortunately, he made it worse by downloading the malware programs that were giving 'less than accurate' reports.

    Please reopen Hijack This and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below:
    Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked. Close HiJackThis. Reboot into safe mode.

    Using Windows Explorer (to get there right-click your Start button and go to "Explore"), please delete these folders (if present):
    After that, Reboot, and post a new HijackThis log here in a reply

    FYI: that 02 entry is: Adware downloader causing false spyware warnings and connecting to rogue "security sites", a member of the Trojan-Downloader.Zlob.Media-Codec aka NewMediaCodec malware family

    Trojan.NewMediaCodec is a program that typically purports to be a needed upgrade to Windows Media Player in order to view adult oriented videos on certain websites.
