My thoughts:

Second is Hook Load failed


It's possible that your are still infected. Because you were so severely infected at first, it's possible for farbar to miss something.
Seeing how you just closed your log yesterday, you could PM farbar and have it reopened.

It could be an orphaned entry leftover from malware removal wanting to load but cannot. You could download Autoruns:

Open it and search for those two dll's and check the box to keep them from attempting to start.
Or because of the severity of the infection you had, Reformat and reinstall Windows
Sometimes that is best

Thanks garmanma! Uhhhhh I may have to pm farbar,,,,, I Didnt add, that I did a system restore,
a while back,, thats how I got by the SP 3 problem. Also,, ya know when you do a system recovery,
you have to install all drivers for hardware? Well for days now, when I boot up I was geting a isntall
hardware wizzard, and I kept X ing it out. Well this morning,, I clicked on find the necessary software
for this driver,,, So it did,,, it took a while but it said hardware installed,, I might add it was some sort
of Plug n Play. Thats when the dll errors started.
I'd hate to bother poor farbar again,,, poor guy had a mess with me! But I guess I may have to.

Not to worry, farbar likes a challenge


Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
