You had the Pepper trojan, just to be sure it's gone, download this file, run, and let terminate (it'll just blink briefly on your screen and won't appeared to have done much--this is normal):

Run the Pepper Trojan fix again that admin. suggested.

Run Hijack This again and put a check in these boxes.

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

Run a virus scan again.
Run The Cleaner again.

Please make sure to clean out your temp. files. This is very important.

Reboot and post a fresh log. It just takes many steps to get a log clean.

do a search for the word casino - make sure hidden files are seen and delete questionable entries with that word.

Try running Spybot Search and Destroy.

You may have deleted blocked sites for Spyblaster. Make sure you update Spyblaster. How is the machine running now?

im not sure what spyblaster is, but my machine is running great. i havent had any of the symtoms my computer first had in a long while. at the very beginning though, the guy told me to wait until i remove all of the spyware before updating it to service pack 2. when should i do that?

This would be the best time to install SP2.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D
