I have tried everything from what Norton's Security Response site says to do to get rid of the insidious varmit called NeededWare to reading bulletin board after bulletin board for direction. Each case seems to be different on how to rid your computer of the varmit. I use Norton Antivirus and Webroot's Spysweeper, neither of which are successful in deleting the pest for very long. It keeps reinventing itself.

I have been into the resgistry and msconfig start up items to try and delete it, but with no luck. I have run the HijackThis and can provide you with a log. Please help. I cannot tell you how many hours I have wasted trying to solve this problem.

I have reached the end of my troubleshooting expertise. Please HELP!

I feel like I have to stand guard 24/7 from uninvited intruders. If I ever get this off, is there a way to batten down the hatches?

Here is my HijackThis log:
