    When you select a service you should see something like stop start restart the service just stop each one then reboot and post new hijack log.

    Thanks for all your help so far, I was just about to tell you that I am giving up for the night so I'm glad you had to go anyways. As far as I can tell those services are stopped. When I click on them the only option is to start them, but it says they can not be started in safe mode. I'll try again tomorrow, but I think I might just end up backing up the files I need and just delete everything.

    Do you have your vista disk?If so we can perform a repair install.But you may wait for the spyware people to help you it kinda sounds like you may have an infection.And from what I saw its probably from lime wire or one of thee similiar apps you have on your computer plus it is hard to help because Im limited in what I can ask you to do,in this forum.

    I just was able to get rid of those services and I did the chkdsk you wanted me to do and I think everything was actually fixed! I am in normal mode right now and so far so good. Here is my most recent hijackthis log I just did:

    Also if it were my machine I would disable these via msconfig but the choice is yours.

    Also wouldnt hurt to defrag your machine.

    Just decline installing anything other than the defrag app like toolbars etc.
