Hi, I seem to have picked up this pesky PSGuard spyware remover. I've carried out the previous four instructions but it still seems to be there. My computer is running a lot slower then usual and i keep on contracting trojan horse infections. Please help! here is my log:

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.

Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

OK try this

Click Start.
Open My Computer.
Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types
Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.
Click OK.

Go to your C:\Windows\system32\system32\dllcache-folder and rightclick on the good wininet.dll and choose copy.
Go back to your C:\Windows\system32-folder, rightclick anywhere in that folder and choose paste.
It could be possible you'll get an error saying the file already exists.
If it gives an error again, reboot.
Check afterwards if there is a new wininet.dll in your system32-folder

See if you can then log on
