Hi chaps, im new to this forum, but after hours of reading threads I manged to remove my browser hijacks, so thanks to all! :tazz:
I do have an issue that I am unsure of, its called 'keyserv.dll' and I can't find much description of it on the web.
This is its full title BHO: MSEvents Object - {B8B55274-0F9A-41E5-9067-A3539BD9E860} - C:\WINDOWS\Web\keysrv.dll
and I have found another reference to it with Winlogon:
Winlogon Notify: keysrv - C:\WINDOWS\Web\keysrv.dll
I get the occasion pop up redirecting to 42search.com (or something like that), but I'm not sure if its related.
I would be grateful if anyone can shed some light on this, thanks!!

:tazz: I've sorted it thanks!
FYI - Eventually, found this to be spyware (keylogger and redirection pop up) I gather it is related to the adware-Virtumundo class and I installed it through another program! The unfortunate thing was only the programs 'Hijack this' and MSAntispyware that could find it, but neither could delete it.
I used Process Explorer (procexp.exe) to suspend Explorer.exe and Winlogon.exe, then used the regedit to manually delete the folders. Hurrah! ;)
I have since deleted the program that I suspect it came with.
I realise this may be old hat to the vast majority of the users here, but thought I'd best explain myself.
