Please post the log a.s.a.p

Delete antivirusgold and securityIsuite

Run killbox and delete th following files
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\Online Dating.url
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\Remove Spyware.url
C:\Documents and Settings\Kevin\Favorites\Black Jack Online.url
C:\Documents and Settings\Kevin\Favorites\Home Loan.url

Try downloading the Service Pack from here and install it from your desktop.

Remember do not install Service Pack 2, as you will have major problems if you install that service pack without being clean first.

After installing SP1a reboot and post a new log.
