    OK, the one thing that stands out most to me is:

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [UnSpyPC] "C:\Program Files\UnSpyPC\UnSpyPC.exe"
    I would uninstall this first, while in safe mode, and check again. If nothing else, let HijackThis remove it from the startup list and then clean it out. I haven't found anything on the net that indicates UnSpyPC is anything more than a spyware scamming tool and is classified by some sites as spyware itself.

    Hope this helps. I'll be online for a bit to check your progress. So, post when you get somewhere.

    I would download EWIDO run the scans and clean out the crap. another useful tool is Ccleaner after you have cleaned your PC, run another HJT log.

    For wild tangent I would go to add/remove and get rid of it...

    Myself personally, I would get the WinXp SP2 and all of the security patches since SP2 came out, otherwise you are going to be continously getting rid of crap.

    To manage your Startups I would get Steve Miln's Start Up Control Panel a lot easier to edit.

    Also, unless you absolutely need it I would get rid of your Realplayer, this comes with crap as well.

    All of your 017's are garbage:

    What it looks like:

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\VxD\MSTCP: Domain =

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain =
    O17 - HKLM\Software\..\Telephony: DomainName =

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{D196AB38-4D1F-45C1-9108-46D367F19F7E}: Domain =

    O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: SearchList =

    O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\VxD\MSTCP: NameServer =,

    What to do:
    If the domain is not from your ISP or company network, have HijackThis fix it. The same goes for the 'SearchList' entries.
    For the 'NameServer' (DNS servers) entries, Google for the IP or IPs and it will be easy to see if they are good or bad.

    What antispyware and AV have you run?

    Did you run HJT in normal or safe mode?

    The reason I ask is all there seems to be there is the remains of a Trend Micro Housecall and the unreliable UnSpyPC

    You might like to use a browser other than IE? (A-Squared) (Spybot Search & Destroy)

    Are two useful free, update and run in safe mode.

    Run MS's AntiSpyware and Ad-Adware. Remove everything they find. Then go to and run an online virus/spyware scan. This'll find any viruses and also dropper files that reinstall persitent spyware. Be sure to generate a report (.txt file). If there's any viruses, just use one of Norton's removal tools designed for that specific virus.

    If you've got persitent spyware (seemingly unremoveable), try booting up using a live linux cd (Insert is the best here) and mount the hdd. If it's an NTFS volume, you'll need to run captive so you can write to the hdd. Then manually delete those files Panda's scan found.

    Works for me.
