Hi thamior...

Two items need to be taken care of first...

(1) We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. You are quite behind on your Windows Updates and Patches!!
  • The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.
    For WinXP SP1a please click here
  • Apply the update, reboot, then go to Windows Update and install all the Critical Updates (Note: Except for WinXP SP2)
    For Windows Update please click here
(2) You are running HijackThis from a zip file within a Temp folder. Two strikes!. HijackThis for one needs to run in a folder on it's own...not in the temp directory as one of the fixes we get you to run is to clean out the Temp folders so by you runnng the program from Temp it would get deleted along with any backup files that were created. Secondly your running HJT from the zip file and by doing than we cannot create backups.

Please download a self extracting copy of HijackThis from here and save it to your desktop. Double-click on the file hijackthis_sfx.exe file and it will self extract into it's own folder in C:\Program Files\HijackThis.

After updating your Windows XP to SP1a please post back a new fresh log using HijackThis from it's new location.

Also please do not use the "code" or "quote" tags when posting back your new log as it is very hard to read the log. Instead of using these tags just paste the log into the thread

Thank You... :)

thamior, please post a fresh hijack log once you have installed SP1a and dobhar will be happy to continue helping you. If we don't hear from you for 14 days then this thread will be closed, however you can ask for it to be re-opened or start a new one when you are ready.
