Aurora.exe and DrPMon.dll

My virus program keeps finding the Aurora Ad Agent virus and the DrPMon.dll on my computer (and possibly more). When I delete them, they come right back. Aurora keeps putting the virus in different temp folders and the DrPMon.dll keeps magically reappearing. My virus protector is Avast. I have run both Ad Aware and Spybot S&D already. I got the viruses originally because I made the mistake of turning off my popup protector so that I could listen to the radio online. I got so many viruses in that short time that I'll never do that again. The popup protector is turned back on. Please note that I also have a program called Cybersitter that restricts internet access for settings that I control.

Here is my log.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

Please download Nailfix from here:
Unzip it to the desktop but please do NOT run it yet.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:

Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on Nailfix.cmd. Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

Then please run Ewido, and run a full scan. Save the logfile from the scan.

Next please run HijackThis, click Scan, and check:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe

Close all open windows except for HijackThis and click Fix Checked.

Restart your computer in normal mode and please post a new HijackThis log, as well as the log from the Ewido scan.

I could not do what you said because I could not get Nailfix to unzip. I tried downloading it 3 times. I also tried unzipping it using WinZip and WinRAR. Both programs tell me that the archive is in unknown format or damaged.
