Ahh, that's more interesting.

You have a belkin wireless card of some sort? It is trying to disable windows wireless configuration utility.

start > run
services.msc
enter

scroll down the list to wireless zero configuration, double click it, then choose STOP button, then in the drop down box, change it to MANUAL from automatic.

Click OK,OK....

reboot. repost a log. different?

no, belkin is disabling it because their driver either conflicts with it, or there is some sort of other problem.

You can also restore it, if needed, by reversing the steps.

OK, but now we know that the wireless config tool was not needed, whichwas th plan.

now, in hijack, let's check the following and hit fix button

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C8B2A36-3DB1-42A4-A3CB-D426709BBFEB} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DXDllRegExe] dxdllreg.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [XpDis0Conf] C:\PROGRA~1\Belkin\BELKIN~1\Tool\WinXPDisableZeroConfigation.exe VEN_14E4&DEV_4320&SUBSYS_70111799 /d

the first is just tidying up, the second is a left over setting from directx setup, that windows should have cleared and the third is the source of our troubles---since wireless config is no longer running, we do not need aother program to disable it, right?

not sure I follow you, but ending the process stopped this instance of it....killing it in hijack will prevent it from reloading next time you reboot
