Hey guys, I've got a good one for ya. Every time my system starts, WINWORD.EXE (in the normal location) starts automatically even though its not in the Run folder under HKLM\Software\Windows... or in my startup list. There's also a browser issue: When I access certain pages on the web, a java applet "FcPred" starts automatically and usually, after loading 2-3 pages in the same domain, IE will freeze and be unrecoverable. The applet also slows down page load time TREMENDOUSLY. I've got "Search Assistant" written all over my registry as well as references to the following folders/files:
%systemroot%\System32\shdocvw.dll
%systemroot%\System32\shdclc.dll
%systemroot%\System32\url.dll
and many others... There's even a Windows XP Hotfix folder containing most of the .dll files that have been copied to System32 and are referenced in the Search Assistant registry entries. I've tried to remove all of the strings/keys from the registry related to this, but every time I do, I kill the shell and have to use Norton GoBack to restore to a few hours before. I have run all of the reccomended software. PLEASE HELP. Thanks. Here's my HJT log:
