I agree. It appears that you have picked up a bit of malware.
When you get an error message, always try to google the main part of it, for
example:
"hojvh5.exe"
If you type it exactly and it does not Google, suspect viruses, worms,
trojans, spyware, etc.

You're post is unclear. You write, "I did run but..". Question: What
did you run? You write "..i think it came back.." - either it did or it
didn't.

Did you run Hijackthis and post the log to one of the forums I indicated?
