IF you are running ME or XP Disable SYSTEM RESTORE : Here's How

Next reboot into Safe Mode and remove the following files and folders that are bolded

C:\WINDOWS\System\WINSTA~1.EXE
C:\Program Files\SuperBar\sbhc.exe

See here http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406 for how to start in safe mode if you don't know how.

Reboot into normal mode

RE-ENABLE SYSTEM RESTORE and create a new restore point


Now download Spybot - Search & Destroy (if you haven't got the program installed already)

After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove/fix all it finds that are in RED

Reboot

Next Download CoolWebShredder to remove Cool Web Search.
http://www.spychecker.com/program/cwshredder.html

Reboot

Last, run HJT again and post your log again to see if anything was missed.

Thanks

alright so here's what happened....

i followed all the processes... except that file "WINSTA~1.exe" was not in my comp when i went to delete it. Running Spybot yeilded 3 items that could not be fixed, and the CoolWebShredder program came up with nothing wrong. Lastly, a NAV scan reveals that I am STILL infected with the w32.kwbot.c.worm as well as the [email protected] worm.... i don't know what to do... im losing my mind here. oh yeh, and heres my hijack log...

Antivirus products can scan the files in System Restore, BUT they can’t clean, disinfect, or delete/quarantine those files.

IF you are running ME or XP Disable SYSTEM RESTORE :
How to disable or enable System Restore in Windows XP


Rerun your virus scan With System Restore turned off.

When you are finished, remember to turn System Restore back on and create a new restore point.

oh yeh, and lastly, would these infections be the sole cause of the fact that my comp sucks now... ie. it is incredibly slow, my internet connection drops like every 5 minutes....?

Hard to say if it's the sole cause, but every bit of cleaning helps.
Are all your virus definitions for NAV up to date? Symantec updated again yesterday (the 18th) since two more worms were discovered.
