    It is clean, but do this:

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close ALL windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

    Restart your computer.


    Here are some routine maintenance practices that you should do on a regular basis to keep your machine running efficienly:

    Disk Cleanup:

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_cleanup_utility.htm

    Defrag your HD:

    http://artsweb.bham.ac.uk/artsit/Info/Guides/GoodPractice/defrag-win2kxp.htm

    Run chkdsk:

    To use Chkdsk, click Start and My Computer. Right-click the hard drive you want to check, and click Properties. Select the Tools tab and click Check Now. Check both boxes. Click Start. You'll get a message that the computer must be rebooted to run a complete check. Click Yes and reboot. Chkdsk will take awhile, so run it when you don't need to use the computer for something else.

    Remove unnecessary startups

    This should be done through the System Configuration Utility. Go to Start > Run and type in msconfig.
    Click OK or hit the Enter key.

    Click on the "Startup" tab and remove the check by the items that you have determined are unnecessary. Click "Apply" then "Close"

    You will be prompted to restart. Go ahead and restart.

    Upon restart you will be confronted with a dialogue box warning about running in selective startup. Just ignore that message and put a check in the box by "Don't show me this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows starts" and click "OK". You will not be bothered by the message again.

    Keep in mind that some entries will be re-enabled in the startups each time you use that particular program. Therefore, you will have to find the option in that programs preferences that says something like "Load with Windows" or "Run when Windows Starts" and disable that option.

    Go here for info on msconfig:

    http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_index.htm

    You can look up the startups here to help determine what is needed and what is not:

    http://computercops.biz/StartupList.html

    here:

    http://www.answersthatwork.com/Tasklist_pages/tasklist.htm

    And here:

    http://www.windowsstartup.com/wso/browse.php?l=8&start=50&end=75


    You might also consider checking out Black Viper's guide to disabling some of the unnecessary services in XP here:

    http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm


    I recommend that you disable these in msconfig:

    NvCplDaemon RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\System32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup

    NvMixerTray C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NvMixer\NvMixerTray.exe

    NvMediaCenter RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\System32\NvMcTray.dll,NvTaskbarInit

    SunJavaUpdateSched C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_04\bin\jusched.exe

    NeroFilterCheck C:\WINDOWS\system32\NeroCheck.exe

    Microsoft Works Update Detection C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Works Shared\WkUFind.exe

    Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE

    I cleaned the 3 items mentioned in you recomendations re: HJT Log as well as disabled all items suggested in msconfig.

    Regarding the msconfig issue...I can't for the life of me find the option not to load on start-up for the following programs from within each program...
    -NvMixer - NvMedia - NvCpl - SunJava Update - Nero
    -Microsoft Office...Matter of fact I don't even have a folder / icon in my "Programs" folder for MS Office. I had to create a shortcut via "explorer" and place it on my desktop in order to run MS Word. MS Word is the only program I installed from the whole suite!
    -Microsoft Works Update ( see above notes regarding MS Office )


    Here's a copy of the new log.............
