I have done all the stuff you have directed on "you must read this before posting a Highjackthis log" and here I am. Im suspecting that this came from a virus from my flashdrive. It was used on an internet cafe computer and when I used it again on this pc, there appeared a dark blue box that said "this computer is being attacked", and it bounced off on the sides of the monitor, disappears for about 30secs then back again. We ran our AVG antivirus many times. It said it was infected with Worm.AutoRun.dcw. Finally, the antivirus was able to remove all of it.
On the following day, however, I noticed everything was running alittle slower, and then the next days after that. It went from bad to worse. I ran the antivirus again but it could not retect anything.

Another problem here is when I try to click on a program, the 'Open With" window would pop out, when normally it justs automatically opens the program that I double-clicked. Also, there are other programs that said it needed the rundll32 file to run. I haven't encountered this before. I really hope you can help me with this. Thank you very much in advance. I'll post my uninstall list in a separate post as instructed.

The following is the log from Highjackthis log:
