    Reboot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
    then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
    Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"


    and Delete these folders

    C:\Program Files\SysAI\
    C:\PROGRA~1\MOVESE~1\
    C:\PROGRA~1\AXISCH~1\
    C:\Program Files\AutoUpdate
    then
    Reboot normally &

    Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are updated and configured as described

    Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
    AdAware 6 from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download


    Run Sybot S&D

    After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then press download updates. Beside the download button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

    then reboot &

    Run ADAWARE

    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    the current ref file should read at least 01R298 20.04.2004 or a higher number/later date

    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    then......

    click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    then.........

    go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu) then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries.

    reboot again

    then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left

    new log--hope it's clean!

    This is the latest log, after following to a T all your wonderful, easy to follow instructions. However.. I now have some backup files in my d/l folder that I did not place there myself, I am guessing one of these progs backed them up? Should i just delete them?
    Thank you again,

    Hi hbfb00 :)

    I merged your new log into the thread with your first log also with dvk01 instructions.

    Please keep all replies or new logs requested in this thread.

    Thanks.

    I didn't notice that you had Hijackthis running from the dsktop

    do this please to clear up the backups

    right click a blank place inside the download folder select new, then folder, then call it hijackthis,

    then grab hold of the hIjackthis.exe icon & drag it into the folder and do the same with all the backups

    it's safer to keep the backups for a few days to make sure the computer is working and nothing else has been accidentally deleted

    one thing to check now

    please go to c:\sys_ai_client_loader.exe and see if it exists, if so delete it

    we have noticed in a couple of cases the file being left over after removal by adaware etc.
