Hey guys! I've been working with a client, who was attacked by someone her daughter knew.
Long story short, guy was tech savy, they got into a fight, i'm assuming he got a keylogger on her computer, he'd been hijacking all of her facebook/myspace/whatever accounts, then eventually stole the family credit card when they ordered something.

I've cleaned all the malware, tracking cookies, temp files, etc with my usual combos of CCLeaner, malwarebytes, hitmanpro, combofix, everything seems fine, but i wanted to double check the hijack this log, as far as i see it looks good, but better safe then sorry!

Sounds like it needs more than that - (hope the police are involved) - I would seriously think about backing up data, reformatting and a reinstall.  If he had a chance to install a key logger, there's probably more than that on there.

If they insist on just cleaning, check for Rootkits - Run TDSSKiller from Kaspersky
And run just about any other root kit tool on it you can find.

Also, remove the drive, and connect it as a secondary drive in anther system and scan it thoroughly again from there.

Good morning!

  All looks well in the log. As a precaution I would run (System File Check) to verify that no system files have been compromised.

The HijackThis log file looks okay, but please be aware that HijackThis will often miss detecting rootkits and other nasties!  
However, you appear to have run a whole arsenal of scanners and the computer is probably well & truly disinfected!

But ...here's another, free, popular scanner that could give you further confirmation that all is well...

Forgot about good olde TDSS killer, great program, i do find hitman generally gets the TDSS rootkits, but i'll run it just incase. I'm pretty confident that it won't need a rebuild, but we'll find out when she tries to make a facebook again (kids these days), thanks for reviewing, i should start picking up on that skillset, but hell these days with the tools we have, hijackthis is becoming a thing of the past!
