Fix these items from your hijackthis list.
C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\COMPUW~1\NMDBInfo.EXE

This process is one of compuware software component to remove trojans/keyloggers.. but it actually affects your pc by installing some unwanted files.

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [NMDBInfo] C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\COMPUW~1\NMDBInfo.EXE /Automation

Then follow removal as it applies to the Mcafee Enterprise antivirus installed on your computer....

Do you use Remote Admin (Radmin)? I don't see it in your Hijackthis log, but Gmer catchme is detecting Radmin reg entries which it can't enumerate completely as shown in the SDFix log.

If you don't use Radmin, then I would delete the relevant reg entries --> [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\RAdmin\v2.0]
As it could be these nasties:

http://www.symantec.com/security_response/print_writeup.jsp?docid=2003-101410-2713-99
http://ca.com/us/securityadvisor/pest/pest.aspx?id=453096740


I would also delete this key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\mountpoints2\{2db1b1fc-4198-11dd-bb71-00085c871838}]
G:\regsvr.exe <-- and this.


And I would run this tool, the tool also creates a harmless autorun.inf in every partition to stop the malicious autorun.inf from being created.
Download and follow the prompts:
