    Hi gasman,

    Before you start please move hijackthis.exe to a folder of it´s own. The program creates backups in the folder it is in. These will now end up on your desktop.

    Check the following items in HijackThis.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\Windows\System32\wsaupdater.exe,

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {83DE62E0-5805-11D8-9B25-00E04C60FAF2} - C:\WINDOWS\2_0_1browserhelper2.dll (file missing)

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\Windows\System32\wsaupdater.exe
    C:\Program Files\WindowsSA <= entire folder

    When you are done, run HijackThis again and post the new log, so we can see if it all worked out as planned.

    Regards,

    Pieter
