OK here's the deal. I'm not new to the computer world by any means. However this IS my frist run-in with a Virus/Trojan and I have brains and pride... I've logged MANY hours working to fix this and here is my white flag....... :tazz: I can't take it anymore.

The short of it is this: I got nailed by the AIM "LOL LOOK!" virus that comes from someone on your Buddy list... clicked the link... the rest is history. I immediately deleted everything I could find to do with the AIM but of course that does nothing. And this "ABI" Company is smearing it's Corporate Feces all over my desktop every time I open Internet Explorer, in the form of 3 popups at a time. I am blocking ALL. Sadly they come through. I promise to switch to Firefox when this is over.

Here is my MAIN problem. I CANNOT GET INTO SAFE MODE. Not through F8 and not through MSCONFIG. What's worse? I CAN'T RUN MSCONFIG AT ALL. I get the quick-flash of it and it's gone. So I CAN'T STOP THESE PROGRAMS FROM RUNNING long enough to run a scan to get them out. They run - therefore they can't be deleted.

Problem number 2 - I use AVG Antivirus. Every time I start up, it detects 4 or 5 Trojan Downloaders. I heal them. They come back. I assume from these "files" that "run" 24 hours a day.

HERE IS WHAT I HAVE DONE SO FAR: Ran Startup Manager Platinum to see my Startup List (since I have no MSCONFIG to use) and disabled everything. Then refreshed the list... and found 2 files ADDING THEMSELVES BACK TO THE STARTUP MENU. So I know 2 of the guys that need to get zapped. But again - they constantly run so they're protected. ALSO... I have run ALL of the following programs, repeatedly, with many Reboots: CleanUp, AdAware, SpyBot, AVG, PurgeIE, Killbox, and Tracks Eraser Pro.

So after DAYS of this, I threw up my hands, and I am asking for some help... I downloaded and ran the Hijack This program... and here is my Logfile.

And my msconfig seems to be working now, which is great.... but for some reason my XP bottom toolbar has changed, along with my Start Menu. It's now the old Windows Grey style with a small rectangular Start button... the blue toolbar that goes with XP is gone. Odd?!? :tazz:

UNFORTUNATELY, I had a crash.

After the last fix I went to MSCONFIG to SAFEBOOT... and upon restart I found out my Windows had been corrupted and would NOT start in safe mode. However, since SAFEBOOT in MSCONFIG was telling it to boot in Safemode... I couldn't use anything. Upon going to F8 and telling it to boot NORMALLY, at the gateway to Windows, MSCONFIG was telling it to GO TO SAFE MODE. It went round in circles. I had to take it to a friend to be backed up and have a Clean Windows Reload done to it. Which, in essence, should solve the rest of the virus problem but is a complete pain in the butt.

Thank you for all the help thus far, though, and I'll log on with results when I am back running. For now I have to go to my father's and mooch his computer to check EMail. This is sad. Thank you again,
