Hi guys, my first post and I'm asking for help already
Every time when I start up my comp, I'm getting an error and it says that either winsock.scr or dxsetu.exe has to be closed.

Also, there are around 10 cmd.exe processes running.

this is my Hijackthis log:

Cmd.exe is your Command Prompt, do you have any DOS windows open?

These particular items usually require an extra step to remove them, but let's try this first. Scan with HJT and have it fix the following entries:

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe winsock.scr
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {42CDD1BF-3FFB-4238-8AD1-7859DF00B1D6} - (no file)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [dxset.exe] C:\WINDOWS\dxsetu.exe

If RIPE Network is not your ISP (195.238.2.22), have HJT fix this one as well:
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{6222B999-528A-47FC-A279-99A8221E6A8A}: NameServer = 195.238.2.22 195.238.2.21

Be sure all windows are closed, other the HJT, before hitting the Fix button

Go to the following location and remove the highlighted file or folder (if found):

C:\WINDOWS\dxsetu.exe
C:\WINDOWS\winsock.scr

For every User listed under C:\Documents and Settings, delete the entire contents of these folders (not the folders themselves):

Local Settings\Temp
Cookies
History
Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

Delete the entire contents of your C:\Windows\Temp folder.

Delete the entire contents of your C:\Temp folder (if you have one).

Do a search for *.tmp and delete all entries found.

(Note: if any of these temporary files cannot be deleted while in ‘normal mode,’ try Safe Mode.

Empty your Recycle Bin.

Reboot, close any open browser windows, scan with HJT, and post a new log please.
