    After running through all of my post (as advised by Howard), boot into safe mode.

    Uninstall Ghostsurf whatever that is
    Uninstall whatever is left of PCTools Site Guard

    Run HJT on its own and let it "fix":

    Afterwards, delete the bold files. When a directory is also bold, delete everything in it, including that directory itself.

    Delete everuthing in: C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp

    Seems to be fixe, but a couple more questions..

    Thanks much for the help - all seems to be well now - I can get to websites, and the variuos tools are reporting clean.

    I still have a big, white rectangle on top of the wallpaper - where the trojan screen was. Persists even if I change wallpaper or theme.

    Any idea of what the corrupted file may be? I'm trying to get replacement restore disks from HP, but get transferred aroung in circles... How does walpaper1.bmp get generated by windows?

    Also, do you want to see the "fixed" HJT file?

    Again - thanks for the help.

    Re. the white rectangle on your desktop

    Right click blank spot on your desktop click properties
    Display properties > Desktop > customize desktop > click the WEB tab > uncheck Lock desktop items and delete everything but "my home page" and delete anything that may be in the my home page box.

    Thanks for reply....

    I woun't be able to try your fix, but it sounds good....

    I finally threw in the towel, ordered replacement restore disks (via India and Canada!), and rebuilt the disk. All's well with my customer, except for a couple of missing programs...
