I've been following the instructions in the tutorial. I'm running SuperAntispyware now, I already picked up AVG spyware and antivirus (and anti-rootkit, but that's done nothing for me). I even read through merijn.org's guide to hijackthis and crossreferenced his chart of 'understanding the hijackthis log' with his redirection to the castlecops website to try and find which processes are confirmed viruses. All in all, if no help is available (a-la, these forums are no longer in use), I think I will be able to clean things up myself. I plan on picking up ZoneAlarm today as my firewall (Using Comodo right now) and an antivirus as well (if only so I get the mass-definition/free upgrades forever thing, and peace of mind).
I will post the logs as soon as I've finished your beginner's process.
