    Download the Pocket Killbox programme from HERE. Extract it but don`t run it yet.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    Run the killbox.exe file. When it loads type the full path to the file you would like to delete in the field and check the delete file on reboot button. press the Delete File button (looks like a red circle with a white X). It will prompt you to reboot, select no until you have finished inputting the files you want to delete, only then allow it to reboot and hopefully your files will now be deleted.

    These are the filepaths you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\rpcc.dll

    dxclib303562752.dll<You will need to find out and enter the filepath for this.

    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments.

    Your HJT log appears to be clean.

    Have HJT fix this inactive entry.

    Howard after running Norton Antivirus 2006 it says I still have 2 viruses in C:\Windows\system32\passchk.exe which it looks like it was put on my pc as a result of the msn virus. The two viruses are an Infostealer which is server2.exe inside C:\Windows\system32\passchk.exe and a W32.Spybot.Worm that is dev.exe that is in the same spot. Any suggestions? Should I just delete the passchk.exe file?

    Use the instructions for Killbox to delete the files in question.

    You might also want to post a fresh HJT log.
