I made the mistake of opening my big mouth about getting bad things off my computer (thanks a lot for telling me how to do that), and now a friend is convinced I can work magic on his office computers. I have no idea how they've managed to get this stuff on here, but these computers are a mess. I ran adaware and grabbed a couple hundred items. Ran spybot and grabbed a couple hundred more. There VShield seems to have kept some stuff away as Panda ActiveScan didn't turn up anything. CWShredder and Stinger also came up empty-handed. This thing has toolbars and redirects galore though. Worse still, I know even less about Windows 2000 than I do about WindowsXP (which the marsupial mod will attest is next to nothing). Help would be greatly appreciated. I can spot a few things in the HJT log that definitely need fixing, but others look either critical to the system or evil. Seems like something I shouldn't guess on if I want my friend to dogsit for me in a month :). Here's the log. Thanks for all the help in the past and hopefully in the future.

First of all could you click Start>Settings>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs and uninstall 'Window Search', 'Window Searching', 'Lop.com', 'LOP SEARCH', 'Browser Enhancer', or 'Ultimate Browser Enhancer' if listed. You may be given a code to insert, do so and reboot when done. If not listed there, run this uninstaller:

Reboot into safe mode following the instructions here & close all (browser) windows & rescan with hijackthis. When the scan is finished place a check in the box to the left of the following entries & click 'fix checked':
