Hello. I am a new member with a couple of questions:

Having spent most of yesterday--Oct. 16--recovering from that nasty Spy Sheriff trojan by running my anti-spyware programs as well as deleting the relevant invaders from my Norton's quarantine log, I noticed today that the System32 file folder still has a few remnants from yesterday's assault, namely application files such as:


and a few oddball files created on the same date which may or may not be associated with the aforementioned application files, namely:

chp.dll application extension
chp32.dll application extension
41 DL_file
vx.tll TLL file

The four above may be "innocent bystanders", but since they appeared on the same date, I don't know if I should delete them from the System32 file folder along with the rest--that is, if you recommend I do so and by the usual right-click, delete method?

While I'm at it, my msconfig startup screen still includes the trojan vxh8jkdq2 although I've removed the tick from the check box next to it to deny it entry. Can I completely remove this little bugger from the msconfig startup screen safely and easily, or should I just leave it there?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Why don't you post a HJT log for examination, just to be sure?

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, 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.
