You need to learn to use a newsreader. Since you didn't post to your
original thread, I really have no idea who you are, what your problem
was, or what has already been suggested. There are many good
newsreaders for Windows, but you can use Outlook Express since you
already have it.Once you get your computer straightened out, here is
information on using a newsreader:

The reason I said *not* to post your HijackThis log here (and I know I
said that because I always include that in my malware removal steps) is
because going through HJT logs is a time-consuming process and you
simply will not get the attention and intensive help that is necessary.
I will make a few comments about some of the entries, but you need to
post your HJT log at *one* of these fora:

http://aumha.net - forums

This is from RealPlayer - legit but unnecessary
> C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe

If you use MSN Messenger constantly, fine. Otherwise don't have it
running
> C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\msnmsgr.exe

This is Internet Explorer. Were you using IE when you ran the scan? You
shouldn't have been, because you are supposed to do all scans in Safe
Mode, so something is wrong here
> C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

In fact, it doesn't look like you ran this scan in Safe Mode at all,
because otherwise none of these items would be running
> C:\Program Files\Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer\mbsa.exe
> C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscntfy.exe

No reason to be using this
> C:\Program Files\BigFix\BigFix.exe

Or this registry cleaner - bad idea
> C:\Program Files\Error Nuker\bin\ErrorNuker.exe

Does CAM Unzip ring a bell? Why should it be running?
> C:\PROGRA~1\CAMUNZ~1\cuz.exe

You've got a lot of cr*p installed on your hard drive. It looks like you
clicked on every "optimize, anonymize, and screw up your pc" banner
that came your way. Things I'd question:

23 Free Solitaire - Is this shareware? Supported by ads?
Adobe Download Manager 2.0 (Remove Only) - unnecessary
Anonymizer Toolbar - Is this shareware? Supported by ads?
BigFix - unnecessary
BPS Data Shredder 1.3.0.0 - Is this shareware? Supported by ads?
CAM UnZip - I'm unfamiliar with this program. Is this shareware?
Supported by ads?
chocRiver Screen Saver - Is this shareware? Supported by ads? Did it
install spyware? Was there a EULA?
CNET Download Manager - unnecessary
Error Nuker - registry cleaners are unnecessary and sometimes harmful
HyperLoad - Is this shareware? Supported by ads?
PicPerk 5.0 - Is this shareware? Supported by ads?
Privacy Guardian 3.2 - Is this shareware? Supported by ads?
Registry Medic 2.99.2 (Build 526) - see comments about registry cleaners
above
SECRETMAKER - Is this shareware? Supported by ads?
SpyHunter - see MVP Eric Howes' comments about this program here:
http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm#de...
Spyware Doctor 3.1 - not familiar with this, was it shareware? Supported
by ads?

For someone who is apparently concerned with covering his tracks, you've
certainly downloaded a lot of questionable programs. You need to run
HijackThis in *Safe Mode* and post your log to one of the fora. I
highly recommend the AumHa forum, but all of the links I gave you are
good.
