Please move Hijack This to a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WSup.exe
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsA.exe
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsS.exe

Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\ <- this folder

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How's your system working? If everything seems to be working okay you can delete the Hijack This folder in a couple weeks.

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use).

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.
