    I do:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exe

    Fix this in safe mode:

    F3 - REG:win.ini: run=C:\WINDOWS\system32\dxdll\svchost.exe

    As far as I know, your home directory (In this case C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator) shouldn't have "Windows" subdirectory at all. Reboot to safe mode and delete it.

    Your system is infected with a few nasties.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and Ewido logs, only after doing the above.
