  1. Could someone just look over my HJT log and tell me how it looks and what to delete? Also, I have Lavasoft Ad-Watch, so everytime I reboot it opens and it tells me it has detected a registry modification. I've attached a text file of exactly what its telling me. What does that mean? And what should I do? Most of these keep returning, and I just can't seem to get rid of them no matter how many times I do anything! HELP! Thanks. :)

    In HJT, 'FIX' these 2 lines:
    O23 - Service: CWShredder Service - Unknown owner - C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\JENNIFER ANNE\DESKTOP\cwshredder.exe (file missing)
    O23 - Service: Norton AntiVirus Auto Protect Service (navapsvc) - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Norton Internet Security\Norton AntiVirus\navapsvc.exe (file missing)

    As to the Ad-Watch Logfile:
    Click on Start/Run and type in regedit and click on OK
    go to the following keys and modify as indicated:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    Value: ITNow
    Delete this Value if there. Rightclick it and select Delete, confirm it.

    Root:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
    Value: AAW
    This is OK

    Root:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
    Value: Shell
    This is OK

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    Value: ViewMgr
    Delete this Value if there. Rightclick it and select Delete, confirm it.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    Value: hwbads
    Delete this Value if there. Rightclick it and select Delete, confirm it.

    Adaware listed those as a result from the previous HJT-cleanup (remember Aurora?).
    Now go into Ad-aware and see if you can 'reset' these logfiles, or 'empty' them or whatever else options it has.
