Hello all.

I have spent the past couple of evenings trying to rid my friend's laptop (running XP SP3) of viruses, and I think I'm almost there but I wanted to check first.

He was experiencing general slowness of his machine, lock-ups, programs not working and being unable to access certain websites. Luckily I stumbled across this site while investigating one of the symptoms and found this thread. I followed some of the advice there and so far it seems to have done the trick.

Just to run through what I've done, I started by uninstalling Avast and installing AVG, but couldn't update it. SUPERAntiSpyware wasn't running properly so I uninstalled it. I downloaded and ran ComboFix.exe which removed several items, after which internet access was restored fully. I then updated AVG and ran a scan which found and fixed a large number of problems. Then I installed MBAM and ran a scan, which found and fixed more problems, as did SUPERAntiSpyware when I re-installed it and ran a scan.

I have had AVG running again for the past hour, and nothing found so far.

I've attached a fresh HijackThis log. Could someone please have a look and see if I've missed anything?

Thanks for your help. :)
