Open regedit and go to *HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify* and delete the *Applets* sub-key and the Shell Extensions sub-key.
NOTE. Please back up the *notify* key by exporting it to a safe location. Call it notify.reg.

Did you create that reg file I just merged?

Yes. Why? Did it work :)?

I reckon your clear :). You can run silent runners again and do the notify key export again to check for those entries, but they should be gone now.

EDIT. Just post another hijackthis log can you.

Will check that registry key and post another log. Thanks so much...

btw.. some reason I could not load the daniweb forums index so I had to download mozilla because I am not in front of my other computers right now.

Oh and just one more thing if you could... when I go to msconfig there a whole bunch of things in there that are unchecked and I think alot of them no longer exist and I was just wondering how to clear that stuff out of there.

Oh and any idea why I cant load dani web forums anymore? works fine with mozilla and was working two hours ago. I did immunize with SB S&D but it gives me a dialog asking me if I want to accept first. I checked security settings and all still won't load.

What are you doing with Msconfig? W2K doesn't come with it. I presumed that programs that were uninstalled were automatically removed from it's menu? Sorry, I can't help you there, I don't know. :(. Perhaps they are remnants in the registry? Why not re-enable them all, reboot and sort it out with hijackthis?

Try clearing out your TIF's and cookies and try Daniweb again. Cannot see where we did anything to upset it. Try disabling Spybot if that doesn't work.

Some of them are the vx2 baddies and I don't know if I should do that?

I downloaded msconfig for win2k...

got the site to work just needed to be opened in a new window for some reason.

Apart from that I don't know what to do. Your call :D.
Does anyone else know if the entries in Msconfig can be orphaned?

I enabled them all like you suggested and went to town with hijack this, and then from the log I used killbox to make sure all of the files were still gone on reboot. After I rebooted ran hijack again and still comes back crystal clear!. SO this seems to be the end of a job well done by you crunchie.. Again thanks so much for all your time, hopefully I can continue to learn about this stuff and help other members on here as a token of my gratitude...

Cheers and Happy New Year!!!
