Hijack This Log - Smart Security Infection - Help! [CLOSED]

My computer appears to have been infected with a Smart Security hijack. My desktop is red with a black box saying "Danger: Spyware!" and most of my desktop shortcuts are missing/don't work. I've searched through tech support forums and the one option for removing it (right clicking and changing the options for my display settings) is not working because the display tabs are frozen.

I followed the directions in the "You Must Read This Before Posting A Hijacking Log" to the letter. The only things I did NOT do was download "TDS-3" since it was a fee service & didn't download the "SP1a" windows update because it appears I have a more recent Windows XP patch installed.

Ad Aware SE found 39 infections, Spybot S&D a few more and same with Panda Activescan. But none removed the Smart Security desktop hijack. And now, anything I've recently downloaded creates two desktop shortcuts - neither of which actually work.

Please help! This thing is such a jerk!

Here is my Hijack This! log. I look forward to hearing back from you soon!

Hi Tricia and welcome to GeeksToGo.

If you went by TechSupportForum, you could have posted there. The fix is over there already. Since you posted here, I will work with you on this one here then.

OK, before we do any fixing, I want you to download another antivirus program that will help us remove a trojan you have here. Download Grisoft AVG and disconnect from the internet. Install Grisoft AVG now. After that's done, I want you to disable Norton immediately. This is to avoid any conflicts. Now run AVG with the full system scan. Remove all that it finds.

Restart and run it one more time to see if anything else is found. Now I want you to give me a new HijackThis log.

For the background problem, do this:

Right click on http://www.greyknigh...pairDesktop.reg and download that file. Double click on it and click on Yes when it asks you if you want to merge it into the registry. Once that's done, restart your computer.

Login as usual and now right click on your Desktop and go to Properties. Next go to Desktop tab->Customize Desktop button->Web tab. Uncheck everything listed there. Then delete all the entries listed except for 'My Current Home Page'. Click OK and OK.
