Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are updated and configured as described

Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
AdAware 6 from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download


Run Sybot S&D

After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then press download updates. Beside the download button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

then reboot &

Run ADAWARE

Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
the current ref file should read at least 01R279 31.03.2004 or a higher number/later date

Then ........

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

then......

click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

then.........

go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu) then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries.

reboot again

then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left

I have no idea what ll these are doing on an XP with IE 6

they are usually associated with IE3 install

I would suspect some sort of trojan or virus that is replacing windows files, unless you have just done an IE repair or reinstall or update

if you haven't just updated etc then please do this to check

Run an online antivirus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites
http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
http://www3.ca.com/virusinfo/
http://www.anti-trojan.net/en/onlinecheck.aspx

then

I would strongly recommend downloading and running a specialised anti trojan

the best antitrojan that I use for dealing with them is

TDS3 from http://tds.diamondcs.com.au/

download & install the 30 day free trial, update it manually as described here http://tds.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=update as the trial version doesn't have auto update enabled

then press scan control & tick all the little boxes in the bottom part of that window, press save configuration and then close that window by pressing the red X in top right corner, then select system testing and select full system scan

sit back with a cup of coffee and watch what it finds

NOTE:

Unlike set and forget av's TDS works with you, it doesn't auto delete anything but puts a list of found suspect files in the bottom window

right click any file it finds and it gives you options on dealing with it, the normal selection would be delete , but first select "save as text", that will create a logfile of all the found suspect files and put it in the TDS directory called scandump.txt.

post back with the tds log after running please, just copy & paste the entries from the scandump.txt

then find all these dll's and right click them and see version numbers and details, copy them and post the results back here

C:\WINDOWS\System32\schannel.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\urlmon.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\actxprxy.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\hlink.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\oleaut32.dll

to find them you might need to 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"

I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO SUCCESSFULLY RUN TDS.
I SET IT UP AND TRIED TO RUN IT AND NOTHING HAPPENS,
EXCEPT IN THE WINDOWS TASK MANAGER IT SHOWS IT AS RUNNING.
I UNINSTALLED AND REINSTALLED TWICE WITH SAME RESULTS.
I EVEN DOWNLOADED THE SETUP FILE TWICE TO BE SURE.
SET UP GOES FINE- WITH NO ERRORS- CUES TO REBOOT TO COMPLETE. BUT THEN THE ICON TO EXE THE PROGRAM STILL DOES NOTHING....hmmmmm

Are not the latest versions but, I see you don't have SP1 installed and it might be that SP1 has the latest versions,

I am still wondering why they were in a run once in the first log,

Unless you were doing a windows update and it was updating, but then it should have given you the latest versions of the files, not older ones

I'm still puzzled by this.
