    Same problem, different entries in the log...have tried using in safe mode also, but to no avail...

    Also, when I find the .dll that shows up in the log file the system32 folder and try right-clicking on it the folder freezes and ends up having to be closed with task manager.

    Any ideas?

    Whenever I "fix" the bad items with HijackThis, everything is fine for a while. Then, at seemingly random times, the problem will surface again, just under a different file name...

    The FIRST thing you need to do is ensure that you have installed ALL Microsoft Updates.(I would hold off on SP 2 for a while)

    Before running ANY scan for virus,trojan,worm etc. you should ALWAYS turn off System Restore as copies of everything you are trying to get rid of are in System Restore just waiting for you to put them back where they came from in the first place.

    This will delete all restore points on your machine,but if they are infected you don't want them anyway.

    Another good thing to do before running the scans is to clear out your TIF and other temp files.
    In Internet Options, under the General tab click the Delete temporary internet files, choose to delete all Offline content.
    Also, go to Start - Search - Files or folders - in the "All or part of the file name" box, type: *.tmp and choose Edit - select all - File - delete.
    Do the same for "Cookies"

    Empty the contents of the C:\Windows\temp folder and C:\temp folder, if you have one.
    Empty Recycle bin.

    Now you are ready to scan your system using:

    Spybot Search & Destroy is a free program that does a good job and can be found here:http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=download

    AdAware is another excellent free program and you can get it here:http://download.com.com/3000-2094-10045910.html?legacy=cnet

    Another thing you can do is an online system scan from here: http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

    Make sure that you update antivirus,firewall and scanning programs on a regular basis,and particularly,just before performing a system scan.

    Once you have done the above post another log and the experts will help clean out whatever is left.

    Once you have cleaned your system and have it running the way it should,turn System Restore back on and create a fresh,clean restore point.
