I have run Adaware, Search & Destroy, ZoneAlarms virus checker and Windows Update. Very interested in learning more about Hijackthis - finally a simple program that tells me what my computer is doing - although I'll follow your instructions and post a log rather than guessing. Looking forward to your suggestions and how do I learn more (ie. to maintain it myself in future)?

Computer seems to start up and shut down much faster. Also used to have computer hang during startup about every three times (reboot would fix) - no longer occurs. Thank you. Couple of comments:
- In c:\winnt\system32 folder, there was also the file "srchbar.dll.manifest" - I deleted this also.
- Your list of files to delete after rebooting in safe mode had four repeats (eg. 3rd item is same as 8th, 4th same as 9th).
- Did not file "explorer.exe" in system 32 folder, but I did find it in the following folder (in which I did not delete) c:\winnt\servicepackfiles\i386
- Found and deleted w32tm.exe in c:\winnt folder, but also found a copies in the following three folders (but I did not delete these other copies):
c:\winnt\$ntuninstallkb835732$
c:\winnt\servicepackfiles\i386
c:\winnt\system32

Not sure whether above is of concern. Thanks again for your help.

It's late. <_<

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :D

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D
