    I have something on my pc that I can not rid myself of. (I use XP Pro) I perform a dozen scans a day using everything that is recommended on here (along with a couple online sites that scan for free) and cannot get the crap off my system. I hope someone with a little knowledge of hijackthis (have posted log below) might be able to give me a few pointers.

    Thanks ahead.

    Also update your WinXP with all the required updates with the exception of SP2 from here -

    http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

    Consider installing SP2 after first getting an all-clear on your log, as it may cause problems if installed on an infected pc.
