Please do this. Click here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html to download Hijack This. It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed.

ok...i've found how to remove this bugger!!!!! here is the solution in case others need it!!!!
Search Assistant Manual Removal:
Unregister these DLLs with Regsvr32, then reboot:
systemroot+\system32\omniband.dll
systemroot+\system\omniband.dll

Rename systemroot+\system32\omniband.dll and systemroot+\system\omniband.dll to old_omniband.dll and restart Windows.

Turn off system restore. On the desktop, right-click on My Computer, click properties, click system restore tab, check turn off system restore, click apply and then OK. Restart your computer. Once your system is clean you will turn it back on and create a new restore point.

Rescan with Hijack This, close all browser windows except Hijack This, put a check mark beside these entries and click “fix checked”.

F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\Windows\System32\wsaupdater.exe,

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {83DE62E0-5805-11D8-9B25-00E04C60FAF2} - (no file)

Then boot to safe mode (see how below), locate and delete these files and/or folders:

C:\Windows\System32\wsaupdater.exe - file

How to restart to safe mode:
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...2001052409420406?OpenDocument&src=sec_doc_nam

Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start - Search and under "More advanced search options". Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next click on My Computer. 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 "Hide extensions for known file types". Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

And what is this one? I couldn't find much on it:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [BootXP] C:\Program Files\BootXP2\BootXP.exe /min

Then reboot and post another hijack this log please.
