Hello,
I have had this problem on my machine for a couple of weeks now and would really really appreciate anybody throwing any light on how to beat this!
Here is my log:

Get a copy of winsockxpfix.exe before you do anything. This is just a safety
item in case you can't get on the internet afterwards. You just run it and
things should work OK after it reboots your system.

http://www.iup.edu/h...net/winfix.shtm



Also download and install ccleaner.exe from http://www.ccleaner.com. Don't let
it clean anything yet.

We also need to uninstall Spybot S&D or at least keep it from running until we
are done. You can either use Start Control Panel Add/Remove Software to remove
it completely which will probably mean you will need to redownload it to
reinstall it or easier would be to run HijackThis and check/Fix Checked the two
entries:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {53707962-6F74-2D53-2644-206D7942484F} -
C:\PROGRA~1\SPYBOT~1\SDHelper.dll
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [SpybotSD TeaTimer] C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search &
Destroy\TeaTimer.exe


We will restore them later. Remind me!


Now shutdown and reboot into Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key when you see the PC
maker's logo.
Keep tapping until it tells you it is going to Safe Mode or you see the Safe
Mode menu. Select the top option.

Run HijackThis and just do a Scan only. Check then Fix
Checked the following:

Wait 60 seconds and repeat the scan. Did any of the above come back? IF so
leave HijackThis up and right click on the clock and select Task Manager. Then
Processes. Find Explorer.exe, right click on it and select End Process. The
desktop will disappear but HijackThis should still be there. IF you don't see
it switch to Applications in Task Manager and highlight it there then press
Switch To or just double click on it. Check and Fix Checked the above again.
Restart Explorer by Task Manager, File, New Task(Run), explorer.exe, OK.



Now run ccleaner.exe. On the first page, uncheck everything but the two lines
that have the word Temporary in them then Run Cleaner.

Reboot into normal mode and run another HijackThis log and post it. Let's
see how we did.

Don't reinstall or restore Spybot until we are sure you are clean. It's a good
program but sometimes it likes to maintain the staus quo and will replace stuff
that we delete.

Looks good to me. I trust you are not having any other problems?

If you want to restore Spybot you can run Hijackthis and scan only then Config then Backups (Or View the list of Backups). and highlight the two spybot entries and press Restore. Reboot and they should run as usual. I don't think they will attempt to restore any of the junk we removed but do another scan and look to see if any of the bad entries returned.
