Before I get the "ARGH NEWB OMFG LOL!OL@!O@L!@O"

I have been to several forums about this (to include this one). I've downloaded the millions of spyware removal kits which now have manifested themselves into roughly 1 gig of my hard drive space. I have followed the directions of each one as well. I've tried removal through safe mode, dos and even that oh so frustrating, add/remove programs, get rid of all the suspicious stuff/stuff I don't remember putting on here. I've done several spyware, antivirus, and malware scans, registry fixers and cleaners...

I guess the point is, I must still be doing something wrong. Because I still get that annoying little warning sign with an exclamation mark in it, and the flashing green wheel chair that looks suspiciously highjacked from windows accessibilities features, that put these wonderful pop-ups telling me how much more spyware protection I need, My computer is infested, my antivirus sucks, would you like to meet not so single, horny women in your town and get lucky tonight, Gamble a million dollars, bla bla bla!

I have run smitrem, smitfraudfix, roguescanfix and have spybot s&d. All of these tell me it's fixed, none of them have fixed it. Generalization....Allow me to restate...

They have all cleaned to the point that when I reboot, they tell me how wonderfully clean and protected my system is, then about an hour later, a security vulnerability pop-up appears, then in a few minutes, a picture of some strange chick with huge boobs asking me if I would like to get lucky tonight...Then I go through the whole procedure again..

All right, by now your thinking, "ok, that's all well and good. However, if you don't adjust your firewall after going through all of that, it will continue to happen." You are correct. And, I have, several times. I even set Spybots kewl little feature to autoprotect me and make this sound of a screaming woman when a "spy" is detected. Heard no screaming women, have seen boobs....

Before I officially qualify as a rant...too late methinks...allow me to post you some details.

Here's the log from smitrem...

I would suggest your posting a HiJackThis! log so our volunteer team of experts can review it and then help you get rid of whatever malware it finds.
Please read carefully the instructions found here:
