SVCHOST.EXE persistent error on XP startup.

Hi everybody. I'm having trouble cleaning my system.

A few days ago I wanted to uninstall ESET Smart Security 4
and go back to ESET Smart Security 3.

Apparently something happened on the way to heaven.

Since that fateful day, whenever I start Windows, I get the error message:

"The instruction at 0x0068066b referenced memory at 0x0068066b.
The memory could not be written"
(My OS language is Spanish, so I'm translating it for the forum).

The message keeps appearing several times and after a few minutes,
the System reboots itself.

Reading on the net, I took the advice given to other people, so I:

1 - deactivated Windows restore
2 - enabled viewing hidden files
3 - restarted on safe mode

Then, I installed and ran a full check with all these programs:

1 - Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
2 - Superantispyware
3 - EasyCleaner
4 - CCleaner
5 - AVG Antivirus

They detected some nasty Trojans, such as some "Dopper" guy and a few generics.

But unfortunately, the message keeps popping up whenever I start Windows in normal model

Looking around to check if there was something left from previous installations,
I found that this file is still around and I can't seem to delete it:

C:\Archivos de programa\ESET\ESET Smart Security\Drivers\epfwndis\epfwndis.sys

I tried Killbox and fileAssassin, but the bugger won't go away.

Now, please I'm on my last nerve on this one. I would appreciate any help you can provide.

I have my latest HijackThis Logfile for your reference if you need it.

I hope all this information helps.
