Hi- welcome to TechTalk!

First of all, you need to run HJT from its own folder; not from a temp/temporary folder (which you are doing now), not from the desktop, and not directly from your C:\ directory. You should also close all programs before scanning.

Secondly- your filesharing programs need to go!! That is the best way to get infected (and you certainly are); you're just asking for trouble!

OK-

1. Download and run the programs listed in my sig below (read the tutorials as well); let them fix whatever they find. It might be a good idea to reboot after running each program.

2. Run HJT again (from its own folder as I mentioned above). Post a fresh log after that.

ok, have got rid of the filesharing progs, used the programs you suggested and ran avg again and its all coming up clean

this is the log when run from its own folder

That's not a full log- there should be a list of all running processes at the beginning of the log (compare to your original).

Also, the following look suspicious; I'd fix them if they don't look like things you know you've installed, or wait until another member can verify them:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [zSearch] C:\Program Files\zSearch\Zstb.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [easywww] C:\windows\easywww.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [BearShare] C:\PROGRA~1\BEARSH~1\BEARSH~1.EXE /pause

O4 - Global Startup: CorrectConnect.lnk = C:\Program Files\CConnect\CConnect.exe :

Thanks for that, crunchie- I didn't have time to individual verify those entries. :)
