Hello rover and welcome to Malware Removal

I'm afraid you aren't quite clear... you still have the BHO and toolbar that comes along with this

Run hijackthis and click the scan button, when it has finished scanning then put a tick against the following, close all other browsers and windows and click 'fix checked'

O2 - BHO: PBUKV2 - {4E7BD74F-2B8D-469E-A0E8-F479B685FA7D} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\pbukv2.dll

O3 - Toolbar: PBUKV2 - {4E7BD74F-2B8D-469E-A0E8-F479B685FA7D} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\pbukv2.dll

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE <--- this one isn't bad as such but it is a known resource hog and you don't need it running at startup. It is your choice as to whether you wish to 'fix' it or not.

Enable viewing of hidden files and folders then find and delete this file

C:\WINDOWS\system32\pbukv2.dll

You are using an old version of Java. Sun's Java is sometimes updated in order to eliminate the exploitation of perceived vulnerabilities in an existing version. For this reason, it's extremely important that you keep the program up to date, and also remove the older more vulnerable versions from your system. The most current version of Sun Java is: Java Runtime Environment Version 5.0 Update 6 .

To check your version to see if it is the latest version, Please go to this link to verify your version to get the updates needed:

You'll need to use IE and allow ActiveX for this update. Follow the instructions on that page to verify Your Java software.

Or you can get the manual download here:

Once you have installed the latest update, please go to Add/Remove Programs and remove all older instances of Java listed there.

Reboot and post me a fresh hijack log please

Hello Rover... I got a little confused as you editied your first post rather than replying to this thread... however your log looks ok now, are your issues resolved?

Remember to hide your system files again.

Start>My Computer>Tools>Folder Options>View
Under the Hidden files and Folders heading uncheck Show hidden files and folders.
check the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.
check the Hide file extensions for known file types.
Click OK.

Disable and Enable System Restore If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point. Because Windows regularly sets restorepoints, it's very possible that the malware, you have removed, is still present in the System Restore. If you put Windows back to such a restorepoint, this malware will be put back, as well.

This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected.)
1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. On the System Restore tab, put a check mark in the 'Turn Off System Restore' check box.
3. Click OK, and then click Yes.
4. Restart the computer.
5. Repeat steps 1 - 2, this time clearing the box beside 'Turn Off System Restore', click 'OK'.

Reboot normally.

Here are some suggestions to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future. I strongly recommend installing the following :

Spyware Blaster - It will prevent most spyware from ever being installed.
Spyware Guard - It offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
IE-Spyad - IE-Spyad places over 4000 web sites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
I also recommend reading this article written by Tony Klein How did I get infected in the first place

Finally... if you feel you would like to complain about the problems you have had, then please help us Make a Difference... we can do something about this malware problem if people like you are prepared to Stand Up and Be Counted. Please consider registering your complaint at Malware Complaints... you can post as a guest.

Many thanks - and my apologies for my confusing response.
Hadn't spotted the reply button below the screen.
I think I'm OK now and appreciate your prompt responces to my problem.
