Hi iampatrickj and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Excal and I will be helping you.

I noticed that your HiJackthis.exe is located on your desktop, make sure to save HijackThis in its own folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This is very important, so HiJackThis can save backups!

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. Click here: http://www.microsoft...p1/default.mspx Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.
(DO NOT INSTALL SP2)

Thanks,

:tazz:

From what I can see you do not have installed. Can you please try one more time, if that doesn't work, try this:

Please go HERE (Microsoft website) using Internet Explorer (not Firefox or any other browser as they won't work)
  • Click on Windows Validation Assistant
  • Click on the Validate Now button.
  • Be patient while the ActiveX loads, do not click on any links.
  • Read the instructions on this page while it's loading. You will be prompted to install - click YES.
  • Enter your product key then click continue
  • When it says "Validation Complete" please click Continue to return to your previous activity
  • Copy what it says and paste it here.

Hello. We are not able to continue helping you on this forum. We have a strict policy to only help people who have legitimate copies of Windows, and can upgrade to at least SP1a. In one post, you claimed to have SP2..which your log does not show. You went on to state that you were having trouble getting sp1a to install (errors due to having sp2).

Yet in your next post, you say you can't get to the Microsoft website at all due to the redirection of Internet Explorer. How did you get there to begin with to receive the installation errors?

This thread is being closed. If and when you can get upgraded to at LEAST sp1a, we will be happy to help you.
