    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.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.>

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.>

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.>

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    Systweak\ASO 2

    Close control panel.

    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    smstartUp manager.exe

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Startup Manager] C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Systweak\ASO 2\smstartUp manager.exe

    O9 - Extra button: MoneySide - {E023F504-0C5A-4750-A1E7-A9046DEA8A21} - c:\Program Files\Microsoft Money\System\mnyviewer.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Systweak

    Reboot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.
