    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

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

    MySearch
    123FlashChatServer6.1

    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).

    wrapper.exe
    palstart.exe
    NMIndexStoreSvr.exe
    RemoveWGA.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).

    palstart.exe

    Close task manager.

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: WgaLogon - WgaLogon.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    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.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\palstart.exe

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

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know how your system is running.
