Try the following:

Start by disabling System Restore, which is something you can re-enable after the PC has been fixed.
Right click My Computer and select Properties.
Click the System Restore tab and in there disable it. Apply and OK out.

Furthermore, make sure that Windows Explorer is set to show hidden files and folders. Click Tools/Folder Options -> View and check Show hidden files and folders and uncheck Hide protected operating system files


Now download the following programs:

CWShredder
Spybot Search & Destroy
Ad-Aware
VX2 Cleaner
Stinger
About:Buster <-- you won't use this one until after we've made some amendments to your logfile.
Cleanup! <-- you won't use this one until after we've made some amendments to your logfile.
ISTsvc remover

Now go to the following online AV scanners:

Rav Antivirus
Trend Antivirus
Panda Activescan

Let all of them delete what they want. Write down what they fail in dealing with.

Then run and update CWShredder. Click the Fixbutton and click OK when the prompt CWShredder will shutdown any open Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player windows. Click OK to continue appears.
Wait for it to finish and then click Next and Finish.

Now install, run, update and scan your system with Spybot S&D.
When it's done scanning, check all entries that are marked RED and click Fix Selected.

Then install Ad-Aware and update it right away. Then scan and let it fix whatever it reports.
Then shut down Ad-Aware.
Then install the VX2 Cleaner and let it install into the Ad-Aware program folder.
Start Ad-Aware again and click the AddOns button. Double click the VX2 Cleaner in there and click OK at the prompt.

Post a new HJT log just in case. Just to make sure that the problem is truly gone.
