I've cleaned out over 1300 spyware/adware files, <_< and I don't want to leave anything that will reincarnate itself. I ran Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D, then cleaned some files out of the first HJT log, now I'm not sure what else to clean out. Could I please get some :D with this HJT log.

Thank you in advance for your help!!!

Looks like you've done a very good job! <_< Are you still having any problems? Outside of some housecleaning, your log looks clean.

I recommend you uninstall WeatherBug, it is bundled with adware. There are safer alternatives available.

<_< Sorry to take so long to reply to your posts, I had to take time out for emergency surgery. I've cleaned out the extra buttons and the weatherbug. I'm not having any more problems and everything is scanning clean now, Thank you so much for your help.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D
