Hi Pieter-

I gave it a try, but the key is still there.

Thanks again for all your help!

That is not what I wanted to hear actually.
Do you still get the error about the missing dll on boot?

Regards,

Pieter

Yes I do...

everything appears to be working, virus and spy scans are coming up clean. The main issues are:

1) Taking longer to boot up

2) The dll missing on boot

3) The CWS.Feads key that is in the registry but I haven't been able to delete

Hi Pieter-

I thought I would just check in to see if there was anything else to do. Also, my Service Pack 2 arrived (finally) from Microsoft, so I was thinking of installing it this week. Does it appear my system is clean enough to do so?

Thank you again for all your great help...it is much appreciated!

Hi--thanks for the help...here is the latest Hijack log. As I mention in earlier posts, everything seems to be running as normal. The only exceptions are:

a) longer time to get to windows
b) a missing dll on boot up
c) a CWS.Feads key that keeps showing up when I scan using eTrust but cannot be deleted.

Thank you again!
