AIM/IE Problems - Hijack Log

Hey there. I'm posting this for a friend, since he doesn't have the time to check these forums. Anywho, he has two main problems:

IE: His internet explorer start page is now some random search page, and each time he opens IE McAfee finds and blocks two new viruses (something like that anyway).

AIM: He can launch and connect in AIM fine, but once he tries to open an IM window, the window itself gets all weird looking and AIM freezes. The same thing happens when he receives an IM.

At the moment I have him using Firefox and Trillian so he can get some work done and such. As far as Hijack this, I've had him "fix" the R1 stuff (the IE Search Bar, pages, etc.) and some other stuff that didn't seem right. But the problems keep coming up, so I figured I'd post his log here and see if that leads to any solutions.

Hey there. Ok, here's what's going on. He recently (since my first post) updated to SP2 (basically ran windows update and got all the "critical" stuff). Now he's getting the Dr Watson errors and explorer restarts when he tries to open any Windows Explorer type windows (My Documents, My Computer, Windows Explorer, etc.) But the AIM problem from before *seems* to be fixed. Odd, but I'm way past being surprised by anything that spyware or adware does.

Here's his most current Hijack Log:

I will need you to reset your restore points. Here are the instructions.

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

(Windows XP)
1. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

Hey there, sorry for not replying. Another friend of ours helped my first friend out with the problems he was having, but I'm still on his case about doing another hijack log just incase. I'll post it here if he gets around to it. Thanks again for your help :tazz:
