The original symptoms observed were that the system would freeze after any attempt to access My Documents, My Computer, Windows Explorer or Control Panel. A DrWatson debugger error message appeared followed by system freeze, which was sometimes preceeded by other erratic behavior. The follow programs were run in sequence:
1. Panda Active Scan
2. CWShredder
3. AdAware
4. Spybot S&D
5. AboutBuster
The symptoms no longer appear, but I'm not certain if my system is now clean. The HijackThis log is attached below. Thanks for any help/advice.

Hi, Actually, you're still infected.

Please update your aboutbuster, but don't let it scan yet!

*It's better to print out these instructions out, because you have a lot of steps to take, so you have a better look on it and this page wouldn't be available all the time.

°First, we will make your hidden files and folders visible.
* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known file types.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.

*Please reboot your system into SAFE MODE.
°To get into the Windows XP Safe mode as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu". Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

*Start hijackthis and click scan and put a checkmark next to the following items:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\iuply.dll/sp.html#26560
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\iuply.dll/sp.html#26560
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {2874EF24-5B4A-FBCC-AAF3-41C5D6A1522B} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntpw32.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ntja.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntja.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [atlfv32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\atlfv32.exe

O4 - Global Startup: LimeWire 4.2.6.lnk = C:\Program Files\LimeWire\LimeWire 4.2.6\LimeWire.exe
O23 - Service: Network Security Service ( 11Fßä#·ºÄÖ`I) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\msdm32.exe


*Close all open windows except hijackthis and click 'Fix Checked'.

*Navigate to and delete the following files if present:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\msdm32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntja.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\iuply.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntpw32.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\atlfv32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ipom32.exe


*Start Aboutbuster and let it scan. Click Ok/yes for every instruction that aboutbuster is giving you.
Let it scan a second time to make sure it can get rid of everything.
When finished, click 'save log'

*Start Cwshredder and click FIX

*Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
Let it scan your system for files to remove.
Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
Press OK to remove them.

*Go to start>Control Panel>Internet Options>tab programs> and click restore websettings.

*Reboot your PC back to normal.

*Perform an online virusscan:TrendMicro Housecall.

*Post a new hijackthis-log + log aboutbuster

Yes, now your log looks clean! Good job!

Still some things you have to check though..

It could be possible that this hijacker deleted some files, so check if the following are still present:

°Control.exe: Is in your C:\WINDOWS\system32. Download here when missing.

°Hosts: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC .Download here when missing.
Unzip hoster to an own folder, eg C:\Hoster
Start Hoster.exe, click 'Restore Original Hosts' and click OK. Close the program.

°Shell.dll: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 Download here when missing

°SDHelper.dll:
If you are using Spybot Search & Destroy, this hijacker can also delete SDHelper.dll.
Download SDHelper.dll.
Place the file in the Spybot Search & Destroy-folder. Most probably, this ist C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
