"Anti-Virus Number-1" Free Removal?

I have looked into this little piece of spyware on the Internet, but there are varying answers of what to do. PLEASE: Do NOT post "Free scan" solutions; these are programs that claim to be free, but you end up having to pay for them to remove the virus.

I have run Spybot S&D and a couple of "free" spyware programs, but to no avail. Spybot did not remove it and the "free" programs wanted me to buy something in order to remove it.

Following is the HijackThis log file. Please, only post a reply if you have something to help remove this because of the sites I have gone to, most of them are trying to sell antivirus software of different sorts. I know there MUST be a free way to do this.
