Kindly request assistance with Hijack This log

  1. I have read the topic how to remove search assist and did as directed. I am running spybot 1.4b and it removed an extra couple of things spybot 1.3 couldn't/didn't. I am working on win98 and I keep getting weird things happening. This is a friend computer, mine doesn't have any of this stuff and I honestly don't know how it gets there. I must have a firewall and my norton must be working well :) along with spybot.

    Thank you very much for your help. I appreicate you folks being here!

    Move C:\WINDOWS\DESKTOP\HIJACKTHIS[1].EXE to its own permanent directory.

    Boot in Safe Mode.

    Get rid of this pest, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LOCATORS.DLL following these instructions:

    Run HJT on its own and let it 'fix':
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,(Default) = (obfuscated)
    O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present
    O6 - HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present
    O9 - Extra button: Search Bar - {A26ABCF0-1C8F-46e7-A67C-0489DC21B9CC} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LOCATORS.DLL
    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Search Bar - {A26ABCF0-1C8F-46e7-A67C-0489DC21B9CC} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LOCATORS.DLL
    O16 - DPF: {74D05D43-3236-11D4-BDCD-00C04F9A3B61} (HouseCall Control) -
    O19 - User stylesheet: (file missing)

    When done, delete C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LOCATORS.DLL

    My HijackThis log-file - please help!

    I've followed all the instructions from realblackstuff and cleaned out a lot of spyware, etc. The only thing I haven't done yet is switched from IE to Firefox.
    I attach my HijackThis log-file. What else is there that needs cleaning?
    Many thanks for your help.

    Check back

    I did as you suggested. The only thing is when I deleted the first one for earthlink, I lost my start page. so that one is still there because I want as start page.

    Let me know if ok, otherwise.
