Several weeks ago I was badly infected with PSGuard and CoolWeb and who-knows-what-else. I found this forum (thank goodness!) and did the suggested: Cleanup, shredder, lavasoft, spybot, ewido, trend-micro, trojan hunter and that seemed to do the trick. The main problems disappeared but I did continue to pick up PSGuard on re-scans and would simply delete of destroy it. However, last week I updated my AOL software (ver. 9.0 optimized) and that seem to be running slow with some runtime conflicts (e.g., the connectivity module produces error messages).

I run Windows 2K, on Thinkpad P3, 800Mhz, 20Gb, with dial-up modem connection.

Many, many thanks, in advance, for your help.

Here's my HiJackThis log...
