I was having intermittent issues with explorer/mozilla both not able to resolve dns. I am not able to Spybot. It starts and exits by itself.
Adaware (free version) did not find any problems. I ran Spyware Doctor and still cannot access any sites. I cannot download AVG. Here's the HJT log --

Hi and welcome to Daniweb forums :).

Please go here & install ALL critical updates required for your system, including service pack 1a for both XP and IE6.
Most malware is designed to attack unpatched XP systems - exploiting the available 'holes' - and can bypass third-party protection on an unpatched system. The most that can be done with an unpatched system is put a temporary bandage on it. Your system can potentially be reinfected within minutes of cleaning it.
Post back a new hijackthis log after rebooting your system.


by the way this may take many many hours/days on dialup

There is no excuse for any XP users to not have at least SP1 installed. I do not intend to waste my time cleaning an unprotected PC. I know what is needed in order to clean up this pc, but I will only deal with a patched operating system :).
