...or delete memsweep2 (shown below) using Autoruns?

the one's in bold red.

S4 iPod Service - "c:\program files\ipod\bin\ipodservice.exe" (file missing)

S4 spkrmon - c:\program files\analog devices\soundmax\spkrmon.exe <Not Verified; ; spkrmon Module>

Only googleupdaterservice.exe and wmccds.exe show up in HJT.

Would be grateful for your advice on how best to proceed from here. I know c:\windows\system32\26.tmp has been (orphaned) on my machine for quite some time.

Thanks a lot...

You are running specialised tools without the knowledge on how to read the results correctly.... this is very dangerous.
It's not just a case of deleting the files you see, you are looking at 'Drivers' and 'Services'..... these need to be dealt with differently.
If you are having problems and need help in removing things, i suggest you post a hjt log and let the experts read and interpret the results correctly.

Read the Preparation Guide before posting a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully

Run a log, and post it in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum.

Do not, post it in this topic.
Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response from the HJT Team, because they are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you, as soon as possible.

Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

If you haven't heard back from them in 5 days, go to this topic, Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?, and carefully follow all directions.

Thanks, I might just take a shot and work on correcting these things myself. I know OTMoveIt and several others are to be used with caution, but I've been watching experts give advice on logs for 3-4 years. It seems like whenever there's an entry in HJT where in parenthesis at the end it says (file missing) the helper says to fix that particular entry.

I need to take some risks and try new things on my own (after watching how the experts have proceeded) or else I'll never be an expert myself!

Thanks again for your reply.
