There is an announcement at the top of this forum stating that all hijackthis logs be posted in the Virus forum; if you decide to post a log, please do so there.

If you plan to edit the Registry, you should make a backup before making any changes. At the top of the Registry window, click on the Registry menu, click Export Registry File. In the Export range panel, click All, then save your registry as Backup. Then, if the running of your PC is affected, you can restore it. You should also set a restore point before making any changes (if you have that option available).

This thread may help answer that somewhat as well as help prevent it:

You should ensure that AdAware first quarantines, then deletes the nasties that it finds. If you need to search for them and delete them later, then you haven't got it configured correctly.

AVG is also able to delete stuff itself, but you should first try having the program 'fix' the things it finds.
