Yes indeed. Exactly what I was after.
You asked me to post the content of "msconfig.txt". I am assuming this is what popped up in notepad? I hope this is what you wanted...

Check if you have "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_02." This should be the path to the latest version of Java. If it is under that path, I see no reason why you should not delete the folders and files manually.
While uninstalling Java 2 Runtime Environment Standard Edition v1.3.1_02 the uninstaller reported that it succeeded in uninstalling all parts but for...
I can only see the one in your add/remove list. Can you point out the paths to the three versions? Just so we would not delete the wrong ones .
I've now 3 versions of AOL on my PC
No you cannot. HijackThis is only a "front end" of the Windows Registry. Removing a line there only "deactivates" a program, but does not remove it completely.
...can I remove them via hijackthis? If I attempt to remove them via add/remove it always fails...
Using the same method as described in the previous post, feel free to uninstall those programs. The programs I mentioned "needed" to go for security issues. All other tools are personal choice and shall be removed if you wish.
Also, if you think it might help, I've no problem, at all, with uninstalling, Cheetah, Compuserve, Netscape (do it need this for any reason? I always use IE), World of Warcraft and Real Player (keeps sneaking back on my PC somehow).
CCleaner is not a bad product, I use it myself. However, it is quite powerful and thence not used here while helping others, to avoid problems that may arise on wrong usage. If you could please post those backups here, it would give us a better idea if it is related to your problems or not.
...he recommended I DL and scan with CCleaner, which I did. I wanted to mention that I have saved those CC registry backups (but I may well have been infected with something at the time that I was unaware of, and which the recent online scanners have since removed)...
I would not quite go that far as yet. Let us "dig" a bit further to see if we can get yourself up and running without the hassle of reinstalling. However, one should point out that regular backups are a must. You can use something like Cobian Backup, for which I wrote a tutorial here too (in the tutorial section). Many people consider format and reinstall to be done once a year as normal, but if you do your backups regularly and surf the net with care, it is not always necessary.
do you think it might be the best thing all 'round to simply reinstall?
