Hi Kengar70, welcome to the forums.

Your log definitely shows some problems, but is incomplete.

HijackThis is running from the desktop, please install it to its own program files folder, usually C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis, and run a scan and save a logfile again.

Once the scan has run, it will open a log in notepad. Copy and paste the entire log to your next post. It may be too large to fit in one post, if so break it up into two posts.

In the interim, try downloading MBAM (free version; the blue download button), install it, update it, and run a scan.

Post the log to your next post after the HJT log, please.

Appears you have a variant of the Koobface worm, usually spread by a malicious attachment via social networking sites.

I see you have elected to open a new topic instead of continuing here, so we might as well continue there.
