Ok well let's get rid of all the tools we used and I will have to send you to the XP forum to finish up with the rest of the problems.
You can start a thread in this forum >XP Forum and they will be able to further assist you with those issues.
=====================
Have Hijackthis check and Fix this entry:

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

then close Hijackthis.
==============
Cleanup::
  • Make sure you have an Internet Connection.
  • Double-click OTMoveIt2.exe to run it. (Vista users, please right click on OTMoveit2.exe and select "Run as an Administrator")
  • Click on the CleanUp! button
  • A list of tool components used in the Cleanup of malware will be downloaded.
  • If your Firewall or Real Time protection attempts to block OtMoveit2 to reach the Internet, please allow the application to do so.
  • Click Yes to begin the Cleanup process and remove these components, including this application.
  • You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.

Delete\uninstall anything else that we used that is left over.
===============
Then I will need you to reset your System Restore points.
The link below shows how to create a clean restore point.

================================
After that your log is clean. :)

The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people.
You do not have to have all or any of them they are only suggestions.
This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.

Spybot Search & Destroy-Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.

Ad-Aware-Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.

Spyware Blaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.

Spywareguard-Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.

IE-SPYAD- puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.

Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.

I take it that you have done all you can and I truly appreciate the help thus far. If I understand you correctly, I am to follow your instructions and then solve this issue thru the xp forum? I assume that you dont see anything else that may be spyware or virus related? If this is correct, Thank you for everything!
