Based on this Hijack log can anyone tell me the most logical course of action. Ad-aware continually finds files even after I have quarantined them.

Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\WINDOWS\System32\PWZN3T~1.DLL (name abbreviated)
C:\Program Files\Viewpoint <- this folder
C:\WINDOWS\System32\tpjhcc.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\image.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\winlogin.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ij1gg8rx33sw8r.dll

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working. <_<

Followed your advise but the last file ij1gg8rx33sw8r.dll will not allow me to delete. Please provide instructions for setting proper permissions to delete this file for XP Home Edition.

Thanks

Click Here to download TheKillbox. Extract TheKillBox.exe from the zip file and double click it to open it up. In the 'Enter Full Path and Filename to Delete' box, copy and paste these entries one by one, clicking 'Find and Kill This File' after each one:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\ij1gg8rx33sw8r.dll

Click 'Exit' when done.

Note: If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run TheKillbox, download and run: http://www.javacools...ngfilesetup.exe. Then try TheKillbox again.

Post a new log when finished.

FYI, The Killbox utility wasn't able to delete this file either, I had a similar problem under Windows XP Pro and I had to reestablish the file permissions somehow, the instructions I had for XP Pro didn't seem to find the same applets for the Home Edition. How do I assert the priviledges back to be able to delete this file for Home Edition?

Thx

In XPHome you have to change ownership and permissions in safe mode. Try that and see if you can then delete it.

If not, do you have the XPHome setup disk? Using the Recovery Console is another option.

I followed the steps outlined in the link and I am still unable to delete the file. I would assume that after following these instructions I would be able to select the checkbox which indicates "special permissions". It will not allow me to this thus I cannot delete this file. Does anybody have any more ideas, there must be away to get control of this file as admin.
