    I have run Hjt and saved the log. I have also red the other posts I could find regarding this issue. It seems my problem is a bit different than the others.

    I do have winlogon.exe in my startup folder, but I can not delete it. It says the file is in use. There are multiple user accounts on this PC, 3 to be exact. The log file from Hjt is below...

    TIA

    Among other things you have a CWS hijack....

    Click on the link below and it will download CWShredder. Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe and let it do it's thing.

    http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/junk/CWShredder.exe

    When it is finished restart your computer.

    I strongly recommend you install the folowing patches for the vulnerabilities that this hijacker exploits:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/bulletin/ms03-011.asp

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/bulletin/MS00-075.asp

    Post another HijackThis log.

    Re-boot into safe mode[by tapping the F8 key as windows starts]
    and delete:
    C:\WINDOWS\msccn32.exe
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\winlogon.exe

    Post a further log to see if all is gone.

    $teve,

    I am trying to follow the second set of directions. I am having a problem getting rid of the line;

    O4 - Global Startup: winlogon.exe

    Now on this PC there are 3 listed users. I have also read other posts asking the user to;

    In Safe Mode, navigate to:

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    and delete the winlogon.exe file in THAT folder. Others are legit.

    I have tried this and could not delete that file.

    I don't know if this has anything to do with it.

    Thanks again,
    Vince

    Ok.....try this.

    Go to start/all programs/accessories/command prompt
    and type del C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\winlogon.exe
    hit the return key.
    Note the space between del and c:

    Let us know how it goes.

    $teve,

    I tried to switch users to get the Hjt report for all the users, and then I had (2) instances of Win Min have a error ending, and one instance of another program. The 3rd program flashed by too quickly for me to write down. It was twf(something)

    Now my PC will not let me log into any user, and is giving me the error message;

    A problem preventing windows from accurately checking the license for this computer Error Code: 0x8007007f

    And then the computer freezes and goes to a black screen with my mouse pointer.

    I have tried the hard reboot as well as ctrl+alt+delete
