Hello, I have WinTaskAd and WinSched on my computer, yet neither of my spy ware programs would find them (ad-aware and spybot), so I downloaded HihackThis from your site, I ran it and tried to remove wintaskAd, but it doesn't fix it. Can someone please tell me what to do? Also, I would appreciate it if you would tell me if any of this other stuff needs fixed.

Thank you very much pieter, it fixed my problem perfectly. Here is my new log(note: HijackThis still found WintaskAd after the reboot, but I clicked 'fix this' again and it took it off the list):

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

Thank you for your help, I will check for updates, but is it safe to get the windows sp2 now? I heard rumors about it locking up computers and messing with firewalls and stuff.

Many of the problems with SP2 come from installing it on an infected system. Your system is clean, so it's a great time to install it. We highly recommend it! <_< It contains numerous security features, and is a roll-up of all previous updates.
