    Check, and have Hijack This fix the following items:

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.pureseeker.com

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SourcePath] c:\cabs\gwreg.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Runner] C:\WINDOWS\svchost.exe /i
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSOfficeCfg] C:\WINDOWS\msocfg32.exe /i

    Now restart your computer.

    Next, please send a copy of the C:\WINDOWS\msocfg32.exe file to submit_stuffATxs4all.nl for analysis (replace 'AT' by @).

    It doesn't appear to belong on your computer, and we'd like a closer look at it!


    Thanks!

    also, what do you mean by a file not belonging on my pc? which file are you referring to? the hotxxx files and the .exe files i keep deleting manually if it's those you mean.

    thanks again...lets hope that works.

    My bad, I forgot to specify; it's C:\WINDOWS\msocfg32.exe; the file can realy only be malware, so we'd like to have a closer look at it.

    It could possibly have the "Hidden" attribute. Here's how to show hidden and operating system files


    BTW, that log looks fine now; are you still experiencing the problem?
