after i went into safe mode to get rid of a browser hijacker, i noticed that my windows XP looked different. my appearance and theme settings were set to windows classic, and when i click on the Appearance tab, there is no "Windows XP" to choose from the "windows and buttons" menu. would fixing the following in High Jack This have something to do with it?

O20 - Winlogon Notify: NavLogon - C:\WINDOWS\System32\NavLogon.dll

i accidently fixed that (even though it wasn't required to get rid of the virus i had) and afraid i deleted something important. so i guess that is two problems i have. if you have any tips on how to get my desktop to look like windows XP again, or how to restore the winlogon notify thing, i'd really appreciate it!

hi there! It is not a good idea to fix things randomly in HJT yourself. You can seriously mess thing up on your system as you have found out. Please stick with your merged threads Here and we will help you. you DO have malware taht cannot be removed simply by fixing them with HJT. Please post a current HJT log in your above thread, and I will help you restore the backup, AND clean your system up.
