You could remove this line with HJT if you desire
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Works Update Detection] C:\Program Files\Microsoft Works\WkDetect.exe

Now for the cleanup, extra protection
-----------------------------------------------------------
Disable WinXP System Restore
Disable your System Restore to remove malware files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files. You will also lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected.
- Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
- On the System Restore tab, put a Check mark in the Turn Off System Restore check box.
- Click OK twice, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
If you are not prompted to reboot, do it on your own.
-----------------------------------------------------------
After the Reboot,
Enable WinXP System Restore
- Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
- On the System Restore tab, Clear the Check mark beside the Turn Off System Restore check box.
- Click OK twice, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
The disable/re-enable System Restore sequence is not to be done regularly, but only once after the removal of malware.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites to your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from accidentally running or downloading known malicious programs. Available from http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
After the installation, click Download Latest Protection Updates. When it finishes, clickEnable All Protection.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install a HOSTS File
A Hosts file is a plain text file which prevents your computer from connecting to malware and spyware sites by redirecting the connection request to 127.0.0.1, which is your local address. Either of these HOSTS files is very capable. If you use a proxy server, or if you are on AOL, be sure to read the special instructions on the MVPS site.

* MVPS Hosts File
You can download the MVPS Hosts File and see a HOSTS file tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
This website also contains useful tips, and links to other resources and utilities.

* Bluetack's Hosts File and Hosts Manager
Based on the research made by Webhelper, Andrew Clover and Eric L. Howes, it contains most, if not all, the known spyware, hijack and rogue sites.
Download Bluetack's Hosts file here : http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=8406
Download Bluetack's Hosts Manager here : http://www.bluetack.co.uk/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=10
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install IE-SPYAD Find it here: https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm
IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone, so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all. It prevents any downloads, cookies, or scripts from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to them.
A tutorial can be found here : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/Using_IE_Spyad_to_enhance_your_privacy_and_security-tut53.html
-----------------------------------------------------------
Run CCleaner. Make sure the Cleaner block on the left is selected. Choose the Windows tab. Check everything EXCEPT cookies, and Autocomplete Form History and the Advanced part of the Menu. Choose Run Cleaner. This process could take a while. When CCleaner shows how much has been removed, cleaning is finished. Click Exit.

Glad we could help out.
