I have a lot of problems with regards to spyware and Malware on my computer but it looks like they have been resolved by the first steps I need to take as per instructed. All, except for three:

1. C:\msdirectx.sys keeps coming back even after AVG detects and heals it. I tried manually removing it from the directory but it still keeps coming back;
2. Whenever i try using Internet Explorer, when trying to go to a site, it changes the address i type in to %20 and then the site i'm trying to go to. Ex: i type in google.com, after a while it changes it to %20google.com and would return Page cannot be displayed... which is a minor problem since I've been using Mozilla recently and have had no problems. But still, i'm guessing there still may be some browser hijackers installed in my computer.
3. I'm not sure if it is a problem, but it seems to me, even in Mozilla, that even if I try to go to any site, it connects first to pagead2.googlesyndication.com. Is that normal?

Anyhows, i believe the next step is to post a HiJackThis Logfile. So here it goes:

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.

Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.
