my first advice to you is to go here http://www.techist.com/forums/f70/hi...torial-102711/

to learn about hijackthis and post a log in the same forum. an expert can come by and give you recommendations on how to get it fixed.

there is likely a virus or some spyware that is still running on that system that cant be removed that easily

I find that nod32 and spysweeper will remove those errors
