Hi, Emanuel,
Welcome! :thumbsup:

Let's see if we can help you with that log.

Read here regarding Spyware Nuker:
http://www.tasklist.org/task_swn2_exe_7922.html

Reboot into Safemode:
Turn on the computer.
Immediately begin tapping the F8 key (or F5 on some computers)
Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press the Enter key.

Go to Add/Remove Programs and remove Spyware Nuker.
Then delete the folder in your Program Files.

Please launch HijackThis and tick these items if they still exist:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = about:blank
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SWN2] C:\Program Files\Spyware Nuker\swnxt.exe /h


Close all windows except HijackThis and click "Fix Checked".

Reboot normally.

Please run these scans:

Ad-aware *
Please download Ad-Aware SE Personal and install it. If you already have Ad-Aware SE, please configure it as indicated below. If you have a previous version of Ad-Aware, please uninstall your current version and install the newest version SE 1.06.
1) Run Ad-Aware, and click Check for updates now.
2) Select Configurations (click the Gear wheel at the top) as follows:
  • General Button > Safety & Settings: Check (Green) all three.
  • Tweak Button > Cleaning Engine > UNcheck "Always try to unload modules before deletion".
Click Proceed.
3) To start the scan, Click > "Scan Now" at left
  • Deselect "Search for negligible risk entries" as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat.
  • Select "Search for low-risk threats"
  • Select "Perform full system scan"
  • Click Next
4) When the scan has completed, select Next.
  • In the Scanning Results window, select the "Critical Objects" tab.
  • Right-click on the screen and choose "Select all objects"
  • In the "Scan Summary" tab, check the box next to each additional "target family" you wish to remove.
  • Click Next to remove the objects selected, and click OK to the prompt.
  • Restart the computer.
Spybot*

Download and scan with Spybot S&D 1.4.

1. Install Spybot. Be sure to UNCHECK TeaTimer when presented with the option to install.
2. Run Spybot, go to the Menu Bar at the top choose Mode and make certain that "Default mode" has a check mark beside it.
3. Click the button "Search for Updates".
4. If any updates are found, install them by placing a checkmark next to each one and clicking "Download Updates".

If you encounter any error messages while downloading the updates, manually download them from here.

5. Click on "Immunize". When it detects what has or has not been blocked, block all remaining items by clicking the green plus sign next to immunize at the top.
6. Click the button "Check for Problems".
7. When Spybot is complete, it will be showing RED entries, bold BLACK entries and GREEN entries in the window.
8. Make certain there is a check mark beside all of the RED entries ONLY.
9. Choose "Fix Selected Problems" and allow Spybot to fix the RED entries.
10. REBOOT to complete the scan and clear memory.

Note: After Windows loads, Spybot may run again to clean some files that it could not clean during the prior session. Follow the same procedure.

Download and scan with CCleaner
1. Before first use, select Options > Advanced and UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"
2. Then select the items you wish to clean up.
In the Windows Tab:
o Clean all entries in the "Internet Explorer" section except Cookies.
o Clean all the entries in the "Windows Explorer" section.
o Clean all entries in the "System" section.
o Clean all entries in the "Advanced" section.
o Clean any others that you choose.

In the Applications Tab:
o Clean all except cookies in the Firefox/Mozilla section if you use it.
o Clean all in the Opera section if you use it.
o Clean Sun Java in the Internet Section.
o Clean any others that you choose.

3. Click the "Run Cleaner" button.
4. A pop up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system.
5. Click "OK" and it will scan and clean your system.
6. Click "exit" when done.
REBOOT.


Please launch HijackThis, scan, and post a fresh HijackThis log. Thanks.

Hi, Emanuel,
You're welcome.
Your log appears to be clean. How are things running?
There is one more thing that we can fix:
You might want to print these instructions.
Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components:

1. Close any open programs you may have running, especially your web
browser
2. Click Start > Control Panel
* Depending on your OS or configuration, you may have to click Start
> Settings > Control Panel
3. Open Add or Remove Programs
* If you have Windows 98 or Windows 2000, open Add/Remove
Programs
4. Click once on any item listing Java Runtime Environment in the name
* Not every version of Java will begin with "Java" so be sure to read
each entry in the list
5. Click the Remove or Change/Remove button
6. Follow steps 4 and 5 as many times as necessary to remove all
versions of Java. ** If at any time during the uninstallations, you are asked to reboot, do so. Then return to Add/Remove and continue removing any other versions of Java until all components of Java have been removed.
7. Delete the Java folder in Program Files.
8. Proceed with reinstalling Java

Continue Step 8 by going to http://www.java.com/en/ and install the latest version from the website .

If everything is running well now, because you had a major infection when you had those bad files a while ago, it would be good to flush System Restore and create a clean Restore Point.
To flush the XP System Restore Points:
(Using XP, you must be logged in as Administrator to do this.)
Go to Start>Run and type msconfig Press enter.
When msconfig opens, click the Launch System Restore Button.
On the next page, click the System Restore Settings Link on the left.
Check the box labeled Turn Off System Restore.

Reboot. Go back in and turn System Restore ON. A new Restore Point will be created.

Here is my standard list of simple steps that you can take to reduce the chance of infection in the future.

You may have already taken some of these steps:
1. Visit Windows Update:
Make sure that you have all the Critical Updates recommended for your operating system and IE. The first defense against infection is a properly patched OS.
Windows Update: http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp

2. Adjust your security settings for ActiveX:
Go to Internet Options/Security/Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
Now press "Custom Level."
In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls) to 'prompt', and 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'disable'.

3. Download and install the following free programs:
a. SpywareBlaster: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
Tutorial here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/use-spywareblaster-to-protect-your-computer/
b. SpywareGuard: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareguard.html
Tutorial here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/use-spywareguard-to-protect-your-computer/
Periodically check for updates in both programs..

4. Keep your antivirus software and firewall software up to date.
Note: Zone Alarm Firewall (Zone Labs) http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/home.jsp is free.
Sygate has an optional free version: http://smb.sygate.com/download_buy.htm
Sunbelt Kerio has a free version: http://www.kerio.com/kpf_download.html

5. You might consider installing Mozilla / Firefox.
http://www.mozilla.org/

6. I would check for updates in SpyBot once a week or so.
Check for updates in Ad-aware frequently.

7. Before using or purchasing any Spyware/Malware protection/removal program, always check the Rogue/Suspect Spyware List. It will save you a lot of grief, as well as money if you are thinking of purchasing. Here is the link: http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm
If you want to know just how effective your anti-spyware program is, or how well any of the "rogue" programs listed at the above link work, check this for an independent comparison of several anti-spyware programs: http://www.spywarewarrior.com/asw-test-guide.htm

8. I also suggest that you continue to run CCleaner once a week or so. The tool updates its version every so often, so click on the button to check for updates once in a while.

9. You might want to take a look at this article:
"So how did I get infected in the first place?"
http://computercops.biz/postlite7736-.html

Let us know if we have not resolved your problem. Otherwise, you are good to go.
Happy and Safe Surfing!

Yes, it has been updated since version 5.0 update 5, so uninstall your old one and download the latest version.

I don't use a free registry cleaner, but some people use this one:
Registry Mechanic
