No, when you did that the first time, the problem was at VX2, and the meaning was to remove it first totally.
Now, that it is gone, you should go through my instructions again, without VX2.

Hopefully this helps you out. ;)

Ok,
go my instructions through one more time, and if that will not help you,
this topic will be referred to Malware forums.
But, we are almost there,
you have a lot less critical objects than beginning.

Ok, let's continue!
It took a while to get home but here we go..
Please, run these online virusscans;
- Trend Micro
- Panda Activescan
- F-secure

Activescan and Trend Micro are recommended.

Now, when you have scanned, remove/fix any problem they might find.
After cleaned (if they found something), reboot.
Then post here, and tell me, how is your computer working.

Hello again

It seems part of your infected items are now just within your system restore folder:

To finish cleaning your computer, you will have to turn off System restore, to clear the folder and then to turn it back on.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

You must be logged in as an Administrator to do this. If you are not logged in as an Administrator, the System Restore tab will not be displayed.
Turning off System Restore will clear out all previous restore points.


NOTE: These instructions assume that you are using the default Windows XP Start Menu and have not changed to the Classic Start menu. To re-enable the default menu, right-click Start, click Properties, click Start menu (not Classic) and then click OK.


To turn off Windows XP System Restore:

1. Click Start.
2. Right-click the My Computer icon, and then click Properties.
3. Click the System Restore tab.
4. Check "Turn off System Restore" or "Turn off System Restore on all drives" as shown in this illustration:
5. Click Apply.
6. When turning off System Restore, the existing restore points will be deleted. Click Yes to do this.
7. Click OK.
8. Proceed with what you need to do; for example, virus removal. When you have finished, restart the computer and follow the instructions in the next section to turn on System Restore.

To turn on Windows XP System Restore:

1. Click Start.
2. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
3. Click the System Restore tab.
4. Uncheck "Turn off System Restore" or "Turn off System Restore on all drives."
5. Click Apply, and then click OK.

Then could you run a full system scan.... And then post it here

Thanks

Andy

Thanks guys - don't want you to think I'm ungrateful - I've been away for a few days. I'll get back into it tomorrow. My browser now makes funny noises when I open a new link......

Hello again.
Haven't seen you in a while.
When you come back tomorrow, update your Ad-aware (New defs file), and post a fresh log..
