Hijack Hell Again?

Verizon DSL claims the problem must be on my side (although 2 days ago it appeared to be on their side) and that I must have a hijacker. Their connection is showing up on the tray and the modem is lit up but I'm getting their error page. What I've done: run Spybot, Ad-ware, and Norton, which had all been updated 1-2 days ago. They found a fair amount of stuff, but nothing looked that serious (don't recognize all the names). Then rebooted in safe mode, ran them all again. Did a system restore (yes I know that seldom works). Right now I'm trying to download new Symantec virus editions on to a floppy from another computer to try to run them on the affected one. What else can I do?


Here's my hijack this log:

Sorry, that didn't work. <_<

I downloaded it to a diskette then ran it on the affected computer and while it seemed to be "repairing" I couldn't get the browser to connect. The Verizon connection seems to be ok but I get the Verizon error screen.

Any other ideas?

Please download GetService.zip
Extract it to a new folder in the desktop. Double click on the Getservice.bat file to run it. This will create and open a text file named getservice.txt in the same folder. It will then open getservice.txt for you.
getservice.txt will list all active Services. Copy and paste the contents of getservice.txt in your next reply here. From the moment you post your list, until you see a detailed fix written up, DO NOT reboot your system or log off. If you do, the service will have changed and the fix provided will not work

I can't do this now because though I have another problem -- I installed a new version of WindowsXP which has the SVPK2 slipstreamed into it, and there's no way to uninstall the SVPK2 now.

I can't keep this computer down long enough to do the getservices thing, but meanwhile, see my new HJT log after a reinstall of the new Windows XP.

This enabled me to finally connect up to Verizon which was in fact connected and immediately get all the virus killer updates. Norton found and killed something with a name like thau.exe and about 10 others. None seemed serious so I don't know why I couldn't connect.

And I have a lot to learn about what "reformat" means because I thought that was merely reinstalling the OS. Perhaps I should have been partitioning hard drives or whatever. Instead, I see that while all my desktop and document files were wiped, it left programs on, including "Hijack This". I reinstalled them all just in case. Seems clean. Thanks for your help.
