Let's try your Hosts.file:

1. Download Hoster Here: http://www.funkytoad...load/hoster.zip

Done. I don't notice a change. Do I need to reboot for it to take effect?

I found another topic where a user was having the same problem. His Norton Antivirus had expired and on a hunch he uninstalled and it corrected the problem. I unistalled all Symantec software and I'm up and running.

Did we need to complete anything else? I think you mentioned that we needed to clean up?

Good Find :tazz:

Congratulations, your log shows that your SYSTEM IS CLEAN

There are a few things you must do once you are completely clean:

1. Re-hide your System Files and Folders to prevent any future accidents.

Reconfigure Windows XP to hide hidden files:
  • Click Start. Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading deselect "Show hidden files and folders".
  • Check the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.
  • Click Yes to confirm. Click OK.
2. Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files from the backup that Windows makes as no program is able to clean those files:

TO DISABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
  • Right-click "My Computer", and then left click "Properties".
  • Left click on "System Restore Tab"
  • Check box beside "Turn Off System Restore"
  • Left click on "Apply"
TO ENABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
  • Remove check mark from "Turn Off System Restore"
  • Click on "Apply"

3.Preventitive measures:

Please read and follow the following advice by TonyKlein on how to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:
