No problems,If I do my Job Right,this will be over soon!!

Lets Go Staright to Safe Mode!!!

Reboot into SAFE MODE(Tap F8 when restarting)
Here is a link on how to boot into Safe Mode:
Safe Mode

After restarting in Safe Mode,Configure Windows to Show All Hidden Files and Folders,this must be done after restarting in Safe Mode!!
Here is a link to help with that:
Hidden Files
Make sure to follow the Instructions for XP!!

Now Navigate to this Folder:


Once the Drivers Folder is Open,Locate this file:


Right Click that File and Select Rename and Rename it to:


Restart in Normal Mode!

Open HijackThis and put a check by these but DO NOT hit the Fix Checked button yet!

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://rl.webtracer.cc/-/?bayzm

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://rl.webtracer.cc/-/?bayzm

O1 - Hosts: 1159680172 auto.search.msn.com

O19 - User stylesheet: C:\WINDOWS\stsheets.dat

Now Make sure ALL WINDOWS and BROWSERS are CLOSED and hit the Fix Checked Button!!

Make sure Windows is Still Showing Hidden Files!!!

Locate and Delete the File in Bold Print:

C:\WINDOWS\stsheets.dat<<< File Only!

When finished, reboot your system again and bring it back up in normal mode. Run MSCONFIG and enable everything in the startup area. To get to MSCONFIG, click on Start -> Run -> type in MSCONFIG -> click OK.
Make Sure Normal Startup is Checked!!
Select the tab labeled Startup and put a Check by every box there!! Once everything is enabled, run "Hijack This!" and post a new log to this thread!!

By Gum I think you got it!!!

Please Delete the file that was renamed now!!!

I take it,finding stsheets.dat wasnt a problem either?

Please Disable System Restore,so we can Flush out all nasty Restore Points!

To do this,Just Disable it and Restart the PC,once Restarted,Renable System Restore,the next time you restart,the system will create a Clean restore Point!

Here is a Link for System Restore:
System Restore

Post back and lets see how we did,the Restart Should tell the Story!
