Let us clean up your PC a little bit.

Delete the following programs and the associated folders, which you downloaded during the cleaning up process -

smitrem folder

Uninstall Ewido as it is a trial product and the trial period will expire shortly. Conflicts can arise between multiple anti-virus programs and can severely hamper the performance of the PC.

Run Hijack This and click on scan. The following items need to be fixed -

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
O14 - IERESET.INF: START_PAGE_URL=http://www.cyberpowersystem.com
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{448F7BC7-78D4-4FD0-B653-97591B101F08}: NameServer =,
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{44FB98C1-338A-4DDE-9141-E44FDD0D76C6}: NameServer =,
O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\..\{448F7BC7-78D4-4FD0-B653-97591B101F08}: NameServer =,

Close all windows other than Hijack This. Check the boxes next to above items and click on Fix checked.

This will not delete the programs from your PC. This will only disable the programs from running at Start up and result in a faster PC. You can always run the programs manually by using the respective exe files or the shortcuts.

Regarding the entries of AOL, It is better to uninstall them through the Control panel ---> Add or Remove Programs.

After this, please visit Windows security and critical updates and get all the updates and patches and install them on your PC.

Reboot the PC and post a fresh HJT log.
