You have a number of randomonly named files on your system. We like to start with an online virus and trojan scan. Even though you have antivirus software on your system, it can become corrupted by malware.

Please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

And a free trojan scan here:
http://www.moosoft.com/

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and we'll remove what's left.

Reboot after doing so, preferably into safe mode and delete:
C:\WINNT\system32\editvica.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\sychkpcn.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\codll.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\cardsrnfg.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\upsauthat.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\lugisE.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\phedvpnhp.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\endr32.exe

And can you find this file for me?
C:\WINNT\caxchg.exe
rightclick it and look at the Version tab under properties.

If that should be inconclusive have it checked here: http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus

Pieter
