SirNight33,

Suggest that you take a look here first: http://www.geekstogo..._Log-t2852.html

Work through the suggestions then post a HJT log in the Malware forum. It is important that you rid your system of Malware first then address any other problem.

HijackThis is for use in many more ways besides just detecting malware. You'd be best advised to follow up on his advice to you and let the HJT experts help you from there.

Sometimes it's just best to start clean and reinstall the operating system. Did you by any chance get the installation cd with the machine?
