Help identifying Possible Worms

Hi, I am using AVG 8 and suddenly noticed one day that AVG is not running - and has been completely removed!  

I reinstalled AVG and did a full system scan which detected autoit infections. Now, I have a mysterious [[Win Xp] Personal Firewall] Windmxm32.exe running and firewall asking if I want to unblock it!

Here is my HijackThis Log:

Please help me to identify the possible worms:

Have you tried using another anti-virus? I recommed taking a look at Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus. Here's the link: http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor-antivirus/

I would do a full scan in Normal Mode and in Safe Mode.

I recommend downloading and updating Malwarebytes.
You can get it free from www.Malwarebytes.org
Once updated, reboot into Safe Mode (F8 at startup) and run a scan.
You should do this with your current antivirus product as well.
If the above steps fail to remove the threat,
you may need to download and run Combofix.
The free download and directions can be located here.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix
As noted in the directions, prior to running Combofix or any other anti-malware/anti-virus application please stop your anti-virus and anti-malware programs. Combofix should be saved to and run from your desktop.
You should rename the anti-malware suites to a different name prior to downloading as some threats can prevent them from running with their default names.

I've had this before, and no matter what I did (and I used to work support for an AV vendor), I could not get the machine back to a working state.  There was always some niggle of some kind.  This one is quite bad, and I *strongly* recommend you format and reinstall.  If time worries you, I can guarantee you'll spend longer than the couple of hours it will take to reinstall and reconfigure Windows.
