Hi, thanks for your time and your help!

I've done everything recommended in the "Start Here" post, besides CleanUp (not sure if I'm running on XP Prof 64-bit), CW Shredder (the agreement mentioned downloading some tracking programs that I decided I didn't want), and the free anti-virus program (already have one).

Prior to all of this, I already had Symantec AntiVirus and eTrust PestPatrol on my comp.

Now I just want to make sure my comp's clean, and then do whatever to keep it clean. Here's my history:

July 23, I was in a cafe using an unsecure wireless connection, and my comp froze and I had to take out the battery and turn it back on. My PestPatrol gave me an alert saying it had detected and quarantined KGB Keylogger, which I then deleted. The whole thing kinda freaked me out though, so I came to this site and went through a lot of the things mentioned in the "Start Here" post, and downloaded AdAware, Spybot, and ewido, and ran all of them, and came up with low-risk threats like adware that I deleted. I also did the House Call check and it showed mostly that I needed a lot of Microsoft updates, so now my comp's configured to get those automatically. Everything seemed okay, so I didn't post here. However, since then sometimes a page won't load when I'm using Firefox, and it'll say:

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.


* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Usually if I try a couple times, or if I try later, I'll be able to access whatever page I was trying to get to. Still, that never really happened before.

August 8 (today): my comp was being really slow, and CPU usage was at 99% sometimes, so I decided to go through all those processes again. I updated Ad-aware and ran it (nothing came up), updated Spybot and ran it (nothing came up), updated Ewido, rebooted into safe mode, and ran it (nothing came up), rebooted into normal mode, ran Trend Housecall (nothing came up), downloaded and ran TrojanHunter, and it caught something it called Trojan.generic (it looked like a registry key?), and deleted that. It looks like there are several critical Windows updates available today, which I didn't want to take care of yet b/c I wanted to make sure my comp was clean before I did that. After I deleted the supposed trojan that TrojanHunter found, my comp seems to be running at normal speed again, but I just want to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Below are my TrojanHunter log and my HijackThis log:
