Howdy Cheetah,

Welcome to CTH. One unwanted item there but not really outright infection on board the system. Unsual setup - looks more like business related than entertainment with some of those media settings. One unknown item that apparently modifies settings, simonsez.exe, is not something I am familiar with, so perhaps you could post back what you know about that one. Looks to be blocking vbs use, so it may interfere with some tools we use if I read that correctly. Let's check some more for now.

Close Internet Explorer and all open windows and run a scan in HijackThis. Place a check next to all of the following lines, then select “Fix Checked” and close HijackThis.

O16 - DPF: {666DDE35-E955-11D0-A707-000000521958} -

Go Here and download ATF cleaner. Click on the downloaded file to run it, and select "Select All", then click Empty Selected (and close ATF).

If you have them, also click on Firefox/Opera at the top and repeat the steps (and close ATF). Firefox/Opera will need to be closed first for the cleaning to be effective.

Go here for an online AV scan (requires IE to run).

Scan "Local Disks" and when finished save the scan log and then post the log here.

Also Go Here and download Silent Runners to your desktop. Run it, and post back here the log it creates. If your AV queries the script, allow it to run. It's not malicious. It will create a file named Startup Programs, and will notify when the scan is complete. Copy the log from the Startup Programs file back here. You can use separate posts if needed.
