    Hi,
    I have a computer (Windows XP Home, SP2) that had quite a bit of spyware on it. I cleaned it up using Ad Aware, Spybot and Super AntiSpyware free edition but I cannot get rid of the error that keeps popping up. I looked at some other posts but since that was log specific I didn't know if I should try to same thing. Here is the error and below that is the Hijack This Log. I'd appreciate any assistance when you get time. I just work on this during evenings. Thanks.
