    Problem with "Hijack This"

    I currently suspect that I have some illusive malware on my system. Windows Defender, Avast, and Comodo detect nothing, though. Well, I heard "Hijack This" is good for such insrtances, however I have NO clue what to delete or deactivate without screwing up my system. Can someone please help me identify my issues so I know what to do to get this problem solved?

    If Vista x64, keep in mind that portions of the HJT log showing "missing" \system32 files is primarily smoke and mirrors. x86 apps like HJT are re-directed to the x86 \syswow64 when seeking the x64 \system32. It doesn't know this. x86 HJT s/b pointed toward \sysnative - the virtualized \system32 during x86 app execution.
