Morning Don,
Here is the latest update. A Couple of things: I am not going to delete WxBug.EXE. It is Weatherbug which I downloaded because I am a weather freak. Also I was only able to find the etyriyg.dll to delete. The other items I was not able to find. Can you think of a reason that I cannot find it? Thanks once again and here is the report.

Hi Nate,
Lets go this route,

Run killbox and click the radio button that says Delete a file on reboot.
Paste them one at a time into the full path of file to delete box and click the red circle with a white cross in it.
The program will ask you if you want to reboot; say No each time until the last one has been pasted in where upon you should answer Yes.
Let the system reboot.

C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\vmstmp
C:\WINDOWS\downloaded program files\ds3.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\nsvsvc
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Uninstall Information\RemoveDisplayUtility.exe


Rescan with active scan and RAV

Please disable your current AV
Click Here and run RAV online scan, Copy and paste back the log into this thread when it has finished,
Be sure and enable your AV when done with the above

Much better Nate,

Please download and install AD-Aware.
Check Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first.

Run ascan with Ad-aware and have it fix all it finds please, Restart your computer,

Next please see Here How to disable and enable system Restore

Disable system restore then enable it, This will flush the last file RAV has found,
Run RAV one more time and let us know how you make out please,

Don,
Yeah, it has been running better as we have been plugging away on this. THANKS a bunch for all of your help with this. Question: As a preventative measure, what is the best way to make sure that my host file does not get corrupted again? Should I just use the host file tool option on spybot? Thanks once again for everything!

Sure Nate,

[*]Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.

[*]AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.

[*]SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.

[*]SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.

[*]IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.

[*]CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.

[*]Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.

[*]Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.

[*]Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
[/list]To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein
