I have read some of the hreads regarding those issues, but I still have the problem of the dxsetuexe popping up again...

I have ::

1. Ran hijack, checked the F2 winsock.scr box, and the o4 dxsetu box, and fixed those
2 rebooted into safe mode
3. Removed dxsetu.exe

but still it is haunting me like a nightmare

Please check my hijackthis log to help me sort out what's the problem..

Download the Pocket KillBox
Unzip the file to your desktop.
Run Pocket Killbox and paste the full file path of each of the below files in the box and click on Standard File Kill and End Explorer Shell While Killing File. Click on the button with the red circle and an X in the middle after you enter each file (see the files below).

C:\WINDOWS\System32\svcnet.exe
C:\WINDOWS\dxsetu.exe
c:\windows\winsock.scr
c:\windows\dxsetu.exe
c:\windows\system32\winlog.com
c:\windows\system32\dxwinex.exe

Reboot afterwards if the files are successfully deleted.

If all files are not deleted, do not reboot yet. Run Pocket Killbox again and paste the full file path in the box and click on Delete on Reboot. Next click on the button with the red circle and an X in the middle. You will get a message saying "File with be deleted on next reboot, Process and Reboot now?" Click "Yes" to reboot only after the last file you enter.

Scan with hijackthis and tick the boxes next to all the following entries, then close all browser and explorer windows, and hit the "Fix checked" button.

It certainly looks ok :). Try it out for a few reboots etc and see if it returns, otherwise you are good to go :D.
