    I've been pulling my hair out with this freakin spyware, i've tried about 10 different ad/spyware remover programs, i've tried about 5 or 6 manual removal suggestions... nothing. Someone please take a look, and help me out, i'm almost to the point of just reformatting and reinstalling, seems like the easiest and most headache free way to get rid of it... I posted somewhere else a few days ago, but haven't heard back yet, and now i believe that the spyware i have has screwed with my notepad.exe, so now i have to re-tell windows where to locate notepad.exe everytime i want to open a .txt or .log or whatever... spyware makers should have their skin peeled off then have a salt/lemon juice massage.

    Here's the log, please help
