It is a good idea sometimes to re-install your operating system.
Here is a good guide for that:  http://safecomputing.umn.edu/guides/xpinstall.html

I have had similar problems, and I have installed the best spyware/adware removers out there, but after years of usage, junk piles up. The best thing to do is back up all of your really important data somewhere, and re-install windows.

you need to get rid of freeze.com. its a free screen saver that installs adware. i would get rid of v-com since you have avg. download and run ccleaner. get rid of uniblue registrybooster.  you should also download and run ad-aware by lavasoft, good program for getting rid of spyware. whats up with the proxy settings, if you dont have an internet accelerator dump it along with static dns addresses

If you have not already tried:
In Add/remove programs remove all applications that are unwanted if possible.
Once done run a scan using an online service, I like
 http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/tools/security_tools/housecall
You can also download a full version trendmicro internet security for 30 days, run it to clean the machine and then uninstall.
I also see have 2 printer programs installed, hp and brother.  If you dont use one uninstall the software for it.

Maybe also CCleaner too once done.

I would also run a chkdsk c: /f on the c drive from a command prompt (restart), just a habit..

In your add/remove programs uninstall this if listed there:
Freeze.com Toolbar, and any other programs that you didn't install.


C:\Program Files\Freeze.com Toolbar <-- and delete this folder.

No one addressed "weatherbug".  It was not listed in the Add & Remove Programs. I found out  that I had to reinstall it  for it to show up in the Add & Remove Programs.  I could not get " trendmicro internet security " to install. Until I downloaded it to another computer, And it really made the computer run slow after it was installed. So I removed it and reinstalled AVG.  All is cleaned up except for  "shopperreport."  I have removed it with HJ but It keeps on comming back.  I went to their web site and tried to reinstall it but didn't see a way to install it. As far as I can tell it's not a problem.
I did try to down load AdAware, but the copy I downloaded from pcworld was not the current version and was not supported. Went to their site and got a supported version.
