Computer infected with run32dll.exe and a tro

Specs: Windows XP SP2
Hello. I've been facing some trouble lately. I have an upto-date avast installed and I had formatted my PC just 3 days back. However, since today morning, Avast has been blocking this particular link (see "Last Infected") everytime I rebooted my PC & connected it to the internet - . It also gave me a virus alert of this random numbered file - . I moved it to the Virus chest.

What did I do?

1. Reboot. See another randomly numbered file in my C drive. Delete it. Reboot again. No random files come up.

2. Checked msconfig. Found some random process, blocked it and rebooted. As I mentioned above, Avast gave me a popup saying it had blocked the link. And Magically, the msconfig process had got activated again after the reboot -

3. Task manager shows "run32dll.exe" & 2 wuauclt.exe processes running. One with my username, one with system. I could successfully close all but they all come back after reboot.

4. I run a HijackThis scan. Come across a strange process -
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ter8m] RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\msxm192z.dll,w

Kindly help me fix the issue(s).

Thanks for your help :)
