Hi!

I've spent 2 full days going through previous posts on this and other sites running HijackThis, Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and whatnot and i've had no success. PLS HELP!!!!!

I'm running a AMD Athlon 1.53 GHz M/c with 768MB RAM; Windows XP Professional SP2.

For several days I've had a problem with my M/c running slow and often just hanging mid-operation (sometimes with the mouse pointer still moving but no response to either left or right clicks or ctrl+alt+del). I thought this was due to a lower RAM availability.

Then 2 days ago I started receiving the "svchost.exe - application error" message window upon starting the M/c and was unable to access Network Connections. I tried rebooting in safe mode/ last known good configuration but that didn't help either. When I tried to do a system restore it said something like system resotre has been disabled & administrator settings are required, etc etc.

I googled for the exact error message (pls see Attached File  svchost.exe___Application_error.JPG   17.32KB   2 downloads) and saw some posts on bleeping computer -- i tried all the instructions on that post (google hijacked, internet won't work.....) that is runing SAS, ATF, hijakcthis, Malwareremover. All the logs from these programs are attached.

Attached File  SUPERAntiSpyware_Scan_Log___05_22_2009___15_14_41.log   461bytes   2 downloads

Malwareremover found several trojan which it removed...however the problem still continues.

In normal and safe mode+networking i do not have internet explorer or mozilla access. tho strangely when i tried using uTorrent... it was donwloading!

Pls help... I have some software installed for which I dont have a second key/permission to install again...and so I am prepared to do anything to avoid re-installing the OS (oh, btw... i ran a chkdsk scan on my c drive but that didn't report any errors). Once I can get the system in a decent running state again... I intend to take an image backup (driveXML or Acronis) AND then AND ONLY THEN will I consider reinstalling the OS.
