I am trying to fix my sister-in-laws laptop and after cleaning out about 30 other things, i'm now only getting a BHO error. I can't figure out how to clean it.

Here's the hijack this log. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't see it. What is the exact wording of the BHO error? Did you see any references to Morpheus Shopping club, Morpheus, Wulrd Shopping Community, or Buyers Port? while you were cleaning? If so, go to their sites and look for their uninstall stuff.
It appears you have tried most things that we would expect to work. Usually AVG antispyware will take care of it. But you might try the free and good Panda active scan: www.pandasoftwware.com/activescan
I see that this is a Dell laptop.
You might be better off doing a reformat and reinstall using the Dell disk set
But before you do, download and update SpyBot`4 and AdawareSE 6.0. Those two will remove some infestations the others won't. You can find them at a number of sites including www.majorgeeks.com, www.cnet.com, www.pcworld.com, www.tucows.com, and so on.


you don't HAVE any BHO's.... but you do have a pesty toolbar which hijackthis will easily remove. Plus you have removed java and there still are a couple of items referencing this. And a couple of timewasters are in there also.... it's up to you what you do with these. So-

Run HT again and set the first 3 to be fixed; I personally would fix the last two also - they only check for updates every time you startup; you can still do that manually whenever you wish/feel the need. They just hog resources, not much, to be true, but....

To fix an entry, run HT, check the box alongside the entry and select Fix checked..
