    On 6/8/04 my machine was hijacked. A window popped-up and said something to the effect that spyware was detected on my machine, and that I should follow a link for a free demo copy of their software to identify and clean my machine of any spyware found. I did not follow the link, thinking that it may be the culprit.

    Since then I have not been able to successfully load windows in normal mode. I have found MANY files and directories that were created on my system since 6/8. I have been working with DCS and they have assisted greatly, and with much patience. They assisted me in attempting to clean-up mu registry. I did get to the point where, after removing what DCS instructed me to remove, I could successfully load windows. That lasted for a day, and I was right back in the same "boat". I loaded and ran their TDS3 utility to attempt to locate and destroy any trojans. No trojans were found. They also suggested I run the hijackthis utility and post the results on your sight.

    The output is attached. Thanks.

    As you seem to have several issues please do the following and then post a fresh log after a reboot or 2
    This time please copy and paste the log rather than attach it
    -----------
    Download the latest version of Ad-Aware at http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
    After installing AAW, and before running the program, you NEED to FIRST update the reference file following these instructions.
    Now do the following:
    - Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Scanning Engine:
    check: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."
    - Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
    Check: "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

    Press "Scan Now"
    - Check option "Use Custom scanning options"
    - Check option "Activate In-Depth Scan"
    - Press "Select drives\folders to scan"
    - Select the active partition which is usually C:

    Now press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives...
    It will find a number of "bad" files and registry keys.
    Right-click in that pane and choose "select all"

    Now press "Next" again.
    It will ask you whether you'd like to remove all checked items. Click OK.

    Finally, close Ad-Aware, and reboot.
    That ought to get rid of most of your spyware.
