Something trying to hijack AOL

Here's ,my log. After a horrible run in with RazeSpyware encountered trying to help someone else fix his PC, I've gotten rid of just about everything that infected my PC. NOW I have this nasty leftover that seems to be attempting to hijack AOL by saying in a text box:

"America Online will now install the files required for you to connect to the service. Click yes to install these files. You may be asked to restart your computer; otherwise, you will not be able to connect."

If I click yes, processor usage jumpes to 99%, I noticed what looks like a cmd prompt flash very quickly and AOL closes. After a reboot, the same prompt comes back up and still no luck. Also, if I run it, processes called "acssetup.exe", "ospath.exe" and "netsh.exe" run very briefly - fishy... To top this off, wen I start AOL in safe mode (no networking) the box does NOT appear, and it at least starts normally.

Is this something tring to hijack it? I've never seen AOL say anthing like this, as almost all tasks are fully automated. Here's my HiJack this log. Thanks for any help.
