My computer was acting wierd and a quick scan using Norton anti virus confirmed that I had several viruses.

I did every thing as described in the step by step guide in this forum.

All steps were completed successfully except ad-aware which would stop when trying to do a "deep scan registry". I disabeled it temporarily and continued with the full scan.

After everything was done... wierd web sites still keep popping up... the spy sheriff s/w still exists... my task manager, desktop background, IE tool bars is still out of my control. Help!

Here is my log from HijackThis: (Thanks a ton in advance!!)
