    HijaackThis can be renamed to "Crusty" either at the time of downloading (ie in the download save box) or once it is downloaded (place of download preferably your Desktop, but by default all downloads go to My Documents)

    System Tray is referring to the icons on the bottom right of your screen, near where your system clock is.
    Many running programs can be closed from there, by right clicking on the icon, and then selecting exit, or close

    sory for the previous post
    because the problem is that the java hasn't been installed properly

    Run JavaRa
    This will remove all your old Java stuff (that is not required)
    It will also help you check for new Java updates


    PC Tools AntiVirus (seeming you have Avira already)
    Spyware Doctor (this should have been disabled during the scans, but now un-install it)

    Startup HijackThis scan only, and tick and then select Fix on the following entries:
    Restart (to a cleaner system ;) )

    Then download Combofix
    Lots of info on its use h e r e
    Direct download h e r e

    Save it to a location that you can easily find later (in Safe Mode) ie directly to C drive

    Restart your computer to Safe Mode (by repeatedly pressing F8 on your keyboard before Windows starts)
    Log into your Administrator account
    Locate the previously downloaded Combofix
    Double click on it to run, answering any prompts along the way
    Note: during Combofix scan (lasting up to 10mins) your Desktop and clock may reset (all normal)

    Once Combofix has finished, save the log file to be attached to a new reply
    Restart back to Normal mode, and attach the Combofix log

    Also in Normal mode still, run another HijackThis log and scan, and attach that scan log as well

    Here is another update link for Java: (you may need to use Internet Explorer to check this)

    Regarding programs not uninstalling. You could use CCleaner to:
    1. Clean all temp files
    2. Uninstall the program through "Tools" section
    3. Run a "Registry" scan and repair

    Whilst your system seems to be clean (including Avira uninstalled) you could update to XP SP3 (for free ;) ) at Windows Update

    But you did anyway :confused:

    Not to worry :)
    It would be ideal to do a Windows Update now and download and install SP3
    Once that's all complete, then re-install Avira Antivirus
