First point of attention;
C:\Program Files\Spare Messaging\MessagingApp.exe - what is that? Spare Messaging?
Another thing, I can see that you have Yahoo toollbar and google toolbar (or maybe even Google dektop) installed. I strongly recommend removing them both.
Last but not least, what is this crack used for?
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=explorer.exe "C:\Windows\Crack.exe"
F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\Windows\system32\userinit.exe,"C:\Windows\Crack.exe",
O4 - HKCU\..\Policies\Explorer\Run: [WindowsUpdate] C:\Windows\Crack.exe
Otherwise I can see that you are using windows live messenger, AVG anit virus, Adobe Reader, Cyberlink and Office 2007. The ones I do not recognise are Kontiki and Ralink Wireless Utility.
What seems to be the problem?
You're not using crack.exe for your OS are you?
Hijackthis does not delete file so you would need to delete this file as well  --> C:\Windows\Crack.exe
Or you could use some tools like MalwareBytes, Combofix, SUPERAntispyware. as some nasties also will not show up in the Hijackthis scan.

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop, check for the tool's Updates before running a scan.

Please download ComboFix by sUBs:

You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.
Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log and attach it in your next reply by pasting it in the "Code Snippet" or "Attach File" window.
Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.
