Hi!

These programs are not harmful:

C:\windows\system\pelmiced.exe
c:\IBMtools\APTEZBTN\APTEZBP.exe

They're both from IBM - the first one is for scroll wheel functionality for mice -
here's some info on the second:

right they are both Normal and valid processes if u are using any IBM device :)
some more info.

pelmiced.exe >> http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/pelmiced/
APTEZBP.exe >> http://www.windowsstartup.com/wso/detail.php?id=116

ur LOG also looks clean to me,,,,, do u still have any problem on ur system ??
and from next time,,, if u want to analyse ur Log, u can use this site >> http://www.hijackthis.de/index.php?langselect=english
and it will automatically analyse it for u,,, and will tell u that what are Nasty and Safe entries, so u can deal with the log urself :)

CAUTION: Before fixing the entries in hijackthis, make sure that they are really Nasty and can be deleted, better u first research for it on Google and then when u will confirm that they shud be deleted, Fix them. And whenever u run Hijackthis, run it from a New folder on ur desktop, so that in case of any problem, u can take advantages of its created backups of fixed items. And in case if u still face problems in dealing with it, just analyse ur log at the above site, and then scroll down where u will see a Save Analyse button, hit it and it will save ur Log Analysation, then copy the link of that page and paste it here, and we will check it for u :)
