Please do the following:

Download L2MFix - Double click L2mfix.exe & answer Yes when prompted. Then click the Install button to extract the files to a newly created folder named - L2mfix

Close all open programs
Double click L2mfix.bat
Select option #2 - Run Fix - by typing 2
Press any key to reboot your computer.
After a reboot, your desktop and icons will appear, then disappear (this is normal). L2mfix will continue to scan your computer and when it's finished, you will be presented with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it here, along with a new HJT log.

If you receive an error - \system32\Autoexec.nt is not suitable for running MS-Dos applications, you will need to visit this website to download additional files.
Please Do NOT run any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are told to

Before we can proceed any further, please visit Microsoft's Windows Update Page and install ALL Critcal Updates for your system (except Service Pack 2 (SP2). SP2 should only be installed on a fully disinfected system). At the minimum install at least SP1a for both XP and IE6.

Without these updates your system is wide open to re-infection and we are both wasting our efforts to clean your system. After we have completed your clean-up, we will have you return to the Windows Update page and install SP2. We will also then advise you on how to better protect yourself online.

Please apply those updates BEFORE posting your next log. It is this forum's policy to stop the disinfection process until these basic updates are done. If during the updating process you get a message that your product key is invalid ....then you may not have a legitimate copy of Windows XP. Unfortunately it’s also this forums policy that we only address users with a legal copy of Windows XP.... therefore if you can not update XP to SP1 we must stop the cleansing process here.

Thank you for your cooperation.

I would very much like to help you. But I require you to update to update to at least SP1a first.

Thank You.
