Hi pcman999,

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP, or Service Pack 4 if you are running Win2k. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.
Click here

Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log, WITHOUT ANY OF THE SPACING OR YOUR OWN ENTRIES/HIGHLIGHTS.

OK, I've installed all Windows updates short of SP2, and rerun Adaware, Spybot, and CWS. Here is the latest Hijack log:
