You've got a handful of nasties there :(

Please do the following:

You will need to close/quit all web browser programs and disconnect from the Internet for much of the following, so you should print out these instructions or save them into a text file with Notepad.

* Run at least two or three of the following online anti-virus/anti-spyware scans and let them fix what they can:

http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus.html
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp?cid=9914
http://www.pandasoftware.com/active...n_principal.htm
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php


* Download and install the following (free) utilities:
Ad Aware SE Personal - http://www.lavasoftusa.com/
SpyBot Search & Destroy - http://www.safer-networking.org/
Cleanup! - http://www.stevengould.org/software/cleanup/

* After installing Ad Aware and SpyBot, use their online update function to make sure you have the most current anti-malware definitions installed. Do not run scans with the programs yet; just close them once the updates are installed.

* Make sure that AVG has the most current updates installed.

* Close all open programs, run HijackTHis again, put a check mark in the boxes to the left of the following entries, and then hit the "Fix checked" button:

* Reboot into Safe Mode (you get to the safe mode boot option by hitting the F8 key as your computer is starting up). While in Safe Mode:

* Run CleanUP! It may take a while for the program to perform its cleaning, so be patient. Close the program when it has finished.

* Run Ad Aware, SpyBot, and AVG. Have the programs fix all malicious entities they find.

* Open Windows Explorer, and in the View->Folder Options menu, click the View tab, scroll down to the "Show all files" option, select that option, and then click OK.

* In Windows Explorer, search for the following files and delete them if they still exist:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\HKS.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\PPDSREGO.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SMS_MSN.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SMS_MSN40.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\TWINQQAF.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\aekztuw.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\dwdsregt.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\twinqqaf.exe

* Delete the following folder entirely:
C:\Program Files\AWS

* Empty your Recycle Bin, reboot normally, run HijackThis again, and post the new log.

Did you carefully and completely perform all of the steps I listed aside from the online scans? Many of the HJT log entries that I asked you to fix are still present, and some of those definitely should have been fixed if you did things correctly.

I sure thought that i did,,,,I'll double back and give it another try....its running so much better now that i can do the online scans as well....i'll post a new log when done..thanks

its running so much better now that i can do the online scans as well....

Great; please do any/all of the online scans that you can. Unfortunately, a couple of the more powerful utilities I'd like to have you run don't work on ME, so hopefully the online scans can do some of that work instead.

Well here is the new log....think it took this time....By the way...What would you recommend for protection with this computer...(my sis-inlaw's computer)? Currently have AVG anti-virus..no firewall and pop-up blocker from yahoo....

Good- that latest log shows no signs of "Nasties". :)

By the way...What would you recommend for protection with this computer

Honestly? For a number of reasons, what she should do is upgrade to the latest version of Windows XP:

* ME is an "End of Life" product, meaning that Microsoft no longer supports it nor releases patches/updates for it.
* Some of the more useful protection programs simply will not run on ME. For example- Microsoft's "Defender" antispyware utility, Windows Firewall, and Ewido Security Suite are a few of the programs that we usually use and recommend, but they don't work with Win 95/98/ME. Even HijackThis doesn't give as much system/infection information when run on an ME system as it does when run on a Win 2K or XP system.
* With Windows XP, Microsoft has addressed many of the bugs and security "loopholes" which exist in earlier versions of Windows.

If moving up to XP isn't an option:
* Keep AVG installed, and make sure its automatic online update function is enabled.
* In terms of free anti-spyware programs which work with ME, these are the ones most often recommend:
Ad Aware
SpyBot
SpywareBlaster
SpywareGuard

* Some popular firewall programs:
Kerio (now owned by SunBelt Software)
Sygate (now owned by Symantec)
Zone Alarm

Download links to the above programs and other malware detection/prevention/removal software can be found here.
