    I've a friend's win2k SP4 pc who really is computer illiterate. They asked me to help them with a virus infection and wow, I found the worst PC i've ever seen. I've removed lots of malware from the system but am now having trouble removing some of haxdoor. Additionally, I think there is some other stuff on the system I've overlooked as when the machine is online the network gets busy and the AVAST mail scanner goes active... not a good sign.

    I've run haxfix with option 3, manual, and used the key ASPI but it will not remove the file.

    The PC did have a copy of AVG on it, but it was disabled/not running, I couldn't get it to uninstall, so It's not loading at all now. There are a lot of files on the PC that are not readable, I believe because of a virus.

    Here are my Hijackthis and haxfix logs, Any help would be much appreciated:

    I worked on the PC a lot more and after deleting over 7000 infected files win2k wasn't quite right anymore. I did a restore of the protected windows files and then did a "install in place" and neither revived the "add/remove program" and tons of other ancillary windows functions. So i've re-partitioned and re-installed.

    Thanks for looking
