    You haven`t renamed HijackThis.exe as per these instructions.

    Please do so and post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

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

    F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\WINDOWS\System32\Userinit.exe

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your system.

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.

    Regards Howard :)

    I have no idea what teaminternetchinchic is. Google and Yahoo searches don`t help at all.

    Where did you come across the teaminternetchinchic name?

    it is in my docs and settings/all users/application data folder. this is the second time i have had it. the first was many months ago. back then it had a file in it...unfortunately, i can't remember what it was, but i couldn't find it anywhere either. this time, it is empty.

    Well, I`ve definitely never heard of it before, so I can`t say whether it`s good or bad. Like I said, Google and Yahoo don`t show any useful results.

    See how your system runs.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    that's what worries me. no one has heard of it before! so what is it and why do i have it are twp big questions in my mind. macroshaft has no clue either. at least not the techs i was speaking with! when i look at startup in msconfig, there are also two puzzling items there that appear to coincide with the existence of teaminternetchinchic. they are named with chinese charcters, so i have no idea what they are! there is also one entry that has no name at all, nor a startup command! interested?

    Mmm, in msconfig, disable those entries and see what happens.

    I also suggest you go and follow the instructions in this thread HERE, just in case you have some kind of rootkit infection.
