    ok I have xp pro and an annoying popup keeps coming up at the bottom of the screen. It never open or anything it just flashes a few times then goes away. However it is very annoying and would like to get rid of it. I have scanned with a-aware 6 a few times and rebooted a few other times yet it still is around. I searched for the answer here but none of the log file fixes anyone else has matches mine. Below is my loglfile, thx in advance.

    Lets begin by rescanning once again with hijack, then insert a check next to each of the following, close all browser windows and click "fix checked"

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lczyia] C:\WINDOWS\System32\kkhscem.exe


    then reboot your system into safe mode http://dotcomsecurity.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=55


    Open windows explorer, find then delete:
    C:\WINDOWS\UpdReg.EXE
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\kkhscem.exe

    Reboot, rescan with hijack then post a fresh logfile please.
