Hi newbie123, and welcome to Geeks to Go! :D

I've spilt your post into a new topic to avoid confusion in the other thread.

Press CTRL+ALT+Delete, this will bring up the task manager. Find dllhelp.exe, select it and click the "End Process" button.

Next, find and delete this file (in bold):
c:\windows\dllhelp.exe

Go to add/remove programs and uninstall P2PNetworking.

That should take care of it. <_<

Let's delete that trouble file and fix your problem. Reboot in safe mode (by tapping F8 at startup and select safe mode from the menu). Be sure you're able to view hidden files and folders, and remove the following files:

c:\windows\dllhelp.exe <-- This File

Uninstall "P2P Networking" through the Control Panel.

Next, please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://yoursearcher.com/index.htm
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /install (malware)
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [dllhelp] c:\windows\dllhelp.exe (trouble file)
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE (resource hog not needed)
O4 - Global Startup: winlogin.exe (reminants of a virus!)

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log. <_<

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

If everything seems to be working okay you can delete the Hijack This folder.

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use).

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.
Link to SpywareBlaster: http://www.javacools...areblaster.html

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.
