I think this is a great service and I appreciate any/all support given to this issue.
I followed all the steps outlined before posting this. I was hoping not to burden anyone with my problem but I'm still suspicious.
I spent close to 24 hours download, updating, scanning, and cleaning up my coworker's laptop in safe mode running Windows XP.
AVG found several Trojan Horse Backdoor results (trojan horse backdoor.small.6.av, trojan horse backdoor.small.20.av, trojan horse backdoor
collected.2.f) all in my WINNT/System32 folder.
Ad-ware found numerous problems and deleted them.
CW Shredder found one problem and fixed it.
Spybot and TDS found nothing. I installed service pack 2 (unfortunately, I didn't do this last but I don't think it caused any problems)
After all scans came up clean, I hooked the machine back up to the LAN and ran Ad-aware and found 6 registry values and 4 registry keys effected.
Attached is my Hijackthis file. Thanks for all your help.
