First of all, you need to go to Windows Update and get SP1a for both XP and IE.

Next, before fixing anything with hijackthis, you should move it from the Temp folder it is in now, to it's own permanent folder, like c:\HJT\hijackthis.exe.

After you've moved it, enable anything you may have disabled in msconfig, close any open browser windows, scan with HJT, and post a new log please.
