Good evening everyone, Its my first post on here but ive been reading some of the other threads on this site to try and solve my problems and using your help with hijack this guides, but could do with some help.

I got into work this morning and was told that the secretary' pc was possessed by the devil so I ran adaware and got a score of 669, the biggest ive seen! So I set to work:

cleaned with adaware se, custom scan
ran spy bot in safe mode and as normal
ran avg
ran hijack this to see if I could spot anything
(all ref files up to date)

Some things just wont go away. After a reboot I can get a clean sheet with Adaware and then spybot picks up:

2 DSO exploits

2 eXact advertising Bargains buddy enties

A mywebsearch

and a Virtual Bouncer

I have emailed myself the log file at home and have been searching on suspicious objects and found 180ax.exe, which I am told is bad and I am currently trying to sniff them out by searching on each one! Unfortunately I do not have access to the infected machine again until tommorow afternoon as Iam now at home. But any help or advice would be appreciated. Please check out my log file. Sorry if theres a lot of junk running but I had to fix it inbetween it being used and when the secretary went to the toilet!!

thanks in advance

Go to control panel, add/remove programs and remove any or all of the following:
180 solutions
any toolbar/searchbars besides google
gain
gator
gmt
wild tangent
weather bug
mysearch
mywebserchbar
WinTools

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

Please save Hijack This in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?.
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):

C:\WINNT\system32\mshosts.exe
C:\winnt\180ax.exe
C:\PROGRA~1\IEMENU~1\tbextn.dll
C:\Program Files\Common Files\WinTools
C:\WINNT\lavat.exe

<<Run a search for and delete these>>
integator.exe
MSschost.exe
reek32.exe
msgsr32.exe

Please delete your temporary files. Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start --->My Computer)
You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the
bottom of the fly out window. One the very first tab (General) you will see a button labeled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.
Make sure the following are checked:
Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.

I'm also wondering about this file: C:\WINNT\system32\nvkload.exe
I don't know what it is but am working on finding out, if you know then inform me please. <_<

Reboot normally and post fresh log with any new information.
