:tazz: I have Win XP SP1. Have been reading many posts, now just joined. Problem: cannot install any program that uses MS Installer Service; cannot do Regedit in normal mode; cannot do Taskmanager in normal mode. I can do those last 2 if I change their extension to .com.
I also cannot use HIJACKTHIS in normal mode.
I did Symantec online scan (since I can't load their or anyone's program) and found 3 Ad-ware files which I deleted manually, a msdirectx.exe file in my doc's folder which I deleted, and isass.exe with a trojan.dropper inside which I deleted.
Then --
I have tried and successfully cleaned out computer with the following, all using latest versions & updates: Ad-Aware, Stinger, CCleaner, Cwshredder, Kill2me, TDS3, Aboutbuster, Spybot S&D. Did all that with System Restore off. Made sure that Installer was automatically started & turned on in Admin Services.
Then --
I searched for the msdirectx and couldn't find it. Also isass no longer was a process and not on my machine.
Rebooted & tried to install, tried regedit, tried taskmgr, tried Hijackthis all in normal mode. STILL NOTHING WORKING.

What am I doing wrong??? Here is my hijack log:
