babybell82,

Welcome to MWR.
I'll help you with your log.

Lets get rid of a few registry entries and files:
-----------------------------------------------------------
Set Your Computer to Show All Files
Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. In addition, if you have Windows XP, go to Start, Search. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove log items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis. If the opening screen shows, choose None of the above, just start the program.
Click Scan. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://www.btopenworld.com/searchpane
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://uk.red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cust ... _side.html
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Window Title = Internet Explorer Provided by blueyonder
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = 127.0.0.1;<local>
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O21 - SSODL: JIGCDFEI - {215446B4-319D-2EF3-4F2C-6E8476693B20} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\Nkmoojnq.dll
O21 - SSODL: mtklefap - {7F9A066A-0A2F-4A84-C6A9-6F18CC22DE4B} - (no file)
O21 - SSODL: mtkle - {5A72EAFC-2B56-46EA-8EB6-B5793318B350} - (no file)

Make sure all other windows except HJT are closed, and Click Fix Checked.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete simultaneously to bring up the task manager
Select the Processes tab
select each instance of explorer.exe you see and choose End Process
-----------------------------------------------------------
Unregister dlls for removal.
Go to Start, Run OR Start, Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt. Enter the following line, followed by <Enter> .

regsvr32 /u Nkmoojnq.dll

Note a space between regsvr32 and /u, also a space between /u and Nkmoojnq.dll
It may "error" out.

If the window disappears, again Go to Start, Run OR Start, Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt.
When you are in the command window, Enter the following line, followed by <Enter> .

del C:\WINDOWS\System32\Nkmoojnq.dll

-----------------------------------------------------------
Reboot the machine
-----------------------------------------------------------
Validate your copy of Windows XP here : http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/ww/windows/default.mspx
Click on "Run the Windows Validation Assistant". Let me know the results.

Update Your Windows XP.
You are currently using an unpatched version of Windows XP.
Before attempting further removal of malware, it is CRITICAL that you update to Service Pack 1a, so we are both not wasting our time.
Get SP1a here : http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/updates/sp1/default.mspx
You should also get SP2, but NOT NOW, rather only after your machine is clean.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HJT Log
Reboot your computer. Start HijackThis. Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl-A), copy and paste the log contents in a reply. Please do not use word wrap (Format, uncheck Word Wrap) in Notepad when you paste your reply.
Thanks
