Hijackthis still wouldn't run. It was renamed to HJT.exe somewhere down the line.
Right link on the Hijackthis icon, it should be a shortcut. Select Properties. Post its Target and the Start in Infomation If other than "C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe", have that target scanned as VirusTotal. Also look in the C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis folder and look if the original Hijackthis.exe still be in the folder. If the trojan copied itself as HJT.exe, chances are the original file still in the folder. Have also HJT.exe scanned if different from the target. Post these results.
Just noticed you ran Hijackthis from your desktop:
C:\Documents and Settings\Linda Kristina\Desktop\HiJackThis.exeWhere did you download Hijackthis from?(This information is important)
Have this file scanned, whether renamed HJT.exe or Hijackthis.exe. If the results are positive, have this file uploaded at:http://www.bleepingc...e.php?channel=4

Follow the instructions above as they may apply, even if striked out.
- After performing the above steps, remove Hijackthis and its folder under Program Files (Trend Micro) (if applies). It puzzles me it was renamed HJT.exe along the line without any help on your part. Perhaps is the culprit for having this trojan spawning.
- Run MyPoppy.exe once again to find out if it has spawned again and post its report..
- Run the SafeBootKeyRepair.exe by sUBs as requested on Post #2. That should take care of the Safe Boot key. Test and let me know
Do not reinstall Hijackthis.
