    I've already gotten rid of a lot of the spy ware already, but no matter what I do it comes back. I've run Ad-adware SE, removed everything that the program found and rebooted. Next I run Spy-bot S&D remove what it finds and reboot. Finally I run HJT and input the log on the HJT analyze website and removed anything marked "Nasty". I did this process about 5 times now and the pop-ups are still coming back. Below is my latest HJT log after running the 2 programs aforementioned. I know that the BHO file needs to be removed but that is the one that returns every time!! How do I permanently fix this? Please help!

    The main difficulty with attempting to fix you now is that the analyser will have told you to delete some items and not told you to delete the files that belong to those items so we don't know what is still hidden on the computer waiting to be reactivated, that is why I am against the HJT auto-analyser

    Run hijackthis, tick these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email windows are closed and press fix checked

    O2 - BHO: MxTargetObj Class - {0000607D-D204-42C7-8E46-216055BF9918} - C:\WINNT\mxTarget.dll

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {2CDE1A7D-A478-4291-BF31-E1B4C16F92EB} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SESync] "C:\Program Files\SED\SED.exe"
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [jfvnarwgwgf] C:\WINNT\System32\otjfkg.exe

    Reboot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
    then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
    Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Delete these files

    C:\WINNT\System32\otjfkg.exe
    C:\WINNT\mxTarget.dll


    and Delete these folders

    C:\Program Files\SED

    then go to C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Temp and select everything in that folder and delete it

    as XP will not let you delete files less than 24 hours old as it thinks it might need them please also do this
    while in the temp folder, select view and select details.
    then right click a blank part and select arrange icons by, and select show in groups and modified, that will give a list of all files in date order with today at the top of the page.
    select all the files/folders except the today ones and delete them all.

    and select EVERYTHING in C:\windows\temp except temporary internet files, cookies and history folders and delete all that as well

    1) Open Control Panel
    2) Click on Internet Options
    3) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
    4) You may also want to check the box "Delete all offline content"
    5) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the temporary internet files
    6) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that websites have placed on your hard drive

    then
    Reboot normally &

    as you already have adawre download and install the VX2 cleaner plug in from the adaware homew page, run it and see if it finds any VX2 baddies, I think as you have mxtarget which is a part of the twaintech/vx2 parasite group it might do

    then post a new log
