I'll start with a small summary of what I been doing to fix this PC:

I'm cleaning the viruses from this computer that belongs to a friend of my sister and I have cleaned several infections completely with tools like Mbam and Superantispyware which I ran twice to be sure that the infections were removed but I still have a problem with one.

The computer was in pretty bad shape when it was given to me, it had quite a few viruses (including a couple of dowloaders uffff!) and I couldn't even boot it at first cause there was a virus that was causing the computer to restart automatically so I entered Safe mode and worked from there until I was able to start it in normal mode after removing most viruses from it. I have disabled System Restore and has not turned it on yet.

After starting in normal mode there were still a few viruses left (one virus that infected a Windows file, one was attempting to send a whole bunch of e-mails) and after some more work I was able to remove those viruses too and replace the damaged Windows file (ndis.sys) from outside Windows and I was able to stabilize it and I continued to work from there in normal mode until I removed most viruses and malware.

Most good anti-virus and anti-spyware programs are giving me a zero result in their scans now and that includes several like Mbam antimalware, SuperAntispyware, EsetNod32 online scan, BitDefender online scan etc. The PC was running Norton System works 2003 and I told her that she should upgrade the antivirus to a newer tool so I removed Norton and at the moment it is running with Avast free until further notice and the Avast scan also came out completely negative.

The problem that I still have is that I ran the online Spysweeper tool from Webroot and it is indicating to me that the PC is infected with trojan-aax5. It says that it found this key in the registry.

HKU\S-1-5-21-2410742245-3193691662-3526516414\software\Microsoft\active setup\installed components\{28abc5c0-4fcb-11cf-aax5-81cx1c635612}\

With some previous viruses I had to delete some keys from the registry and some files manually to remove them and I was successful. As you can see most antivirus software is giving me zero results but this key that Spysweeper indicated doesn't appear in the registry when I look for it and I cannot remove this virus from Spysweeper cause the free version doesn't do that.

This HKey_Users area HKU\S-1-5-21-2410742245-3193691662-3526516414 is not in the registry what I have is something similar:

HKU\S-1-5-21-2410742245-3193691662-3526516414-1009 but that value {28abc5c0-4fcb-11cf-aax5-81cx1c635612} is not there.

Is there something running in memory blocking this key? How can I remove this nasty from the PC? In one place where I read about this trojan it said that it also can block Windows from reporting that there are upgrades available for Windows and that it can also block Windows from reporting if the antivirus is out of date. The place said that it can also replace Windows Explorer with a copy.

This makes me suspect even more that the PC is indeed infected with this nasty cause I used the link in Internet Explorer to go to the Windows Update page to see if there were updates pending and there were 33 pending (about 72 megabytes of download).

This PC has been connected to the Internet for several days now and I have not seen one single Windows update message and the automatic feature is turned on which is very odd.

I would appreciate any help with this.

PC that I'm fixing is Acer Aspire One ZG5 notebook with Atom n270 CPU Processor running Windows XP Home with SP3.

This is a Hijack This log that I just did with a brand new download of the software:
