Computer won't shutdown

I an running XP Pro but when I try to shutdown a box appears saying ts.exe has stopped responding and I have to select 'End Now' On other occasions it says tsl.exe has stopped responding and I have to select 'End Now'. What are these and how do I get rid of them?

1. To deactivate 'Time Shag', simply copy the word KILLTIMESHAG into the clipboard.

2. Kill ts.exe with task manager

3. Delete files ts.exe and ts.txt with explorer

It could be spyware according to this Hijackthis log. Try downloading and scanning with Ad-aware and Spybot.
