I think I know enough to look through my own hijackthis log file and clean my own pc. Since alot of those entries can be kind of hard to read, Is there a place where I can find a list of known malware?

If you're an advanced computer user, and want to analyze your own log, we'll provide you with some basic tools.

A couple on-line HJT analyzers:
The machine analyzers are far from perfect. They can't identify most randomly named malware, miss some newer items, and may occasionally recommend removal of a legitimate entry. However, they can be useful, and are a good place to start cleaning your log.

Helpful tools to identify entries:
Identifying RO/R1 CWS Domains
