Hi and welcome

That file looks to be something to do with the "hot key" keyboard shortcuts.

Info:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/hkcmd.exe-1939.html

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HotKeysCmds] C:\WINDOWS\system32\hkcmd.exe

Is something telling you this is infected? Or are you getting errors that this file is missing?
I don't see it running processes in your log.
I'll have an order of massive trojan attack please with a side order of rootkit and virus dip.
Pre-course order of fresh spyware salad please with a side order of polymorphic dressing.
And to drink...a nice tall glass of adware!

For dessert; can I have a bowl of the freshest worms you have please?.

Never Give Up!

Hi

I wouldn't delete the file itself but disabling it from running shouldn't hurt anything.
The day you delete it...you will want it. lol.
You just won't have "instant" access to the control panel for your graphics.
Instead of disabling it in msconfig you can disable it from the display applet in your control panel.
If you disable it from there it shouldn't keep trying to start up again.

Hi & you're welcome.

Something I did see in your log that should be updated.
Java is now at version 6.

All old versions should be uninstalled and new version installed.
If old versions are left on the system not only are you wasting hdd space but there are security issues with old versions that can be exploited.

Please follow the steps to remove older version Java components

Download the latest Java from here:
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp

If you don't need to develop java programs

You want this one:

Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6

If you do develop programs then you will want one of the JDK downloads.

Next page that comes up you need to accept the agreement to download it.
First in list is the offline installation
This is the one to download. Save it to your desktop or your normal download folder.

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
7. Reboot your PC once all Java components have been removed
8. Proceed with reinstalling Java using the file you just saved.

Does your Yahoo antivirus also come with firewall?
If not....should install one.
XP has its own but is not very good for OUTgoing traffic protection. If something slips by your antivirus a 3rd party firewall can alert you of unusual outgoing program traffic. You can block it with the firewall and contain the infection fair quick.

A few free ones available:

I use zone alarm. A free version can be downloaded here:

Free zone alarm

Others..

Outpost:
http://www.agnitum.com/products/outpostfree/download.php

Sunbelt kerio:
http://www.sunbelt-software.com/Kerio.cfm

Understanding and using firewalls:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/understanding-and-using-firewalls/

Do make sure the XP firewall is off if you do install a 3rd party one or they will conflict.

Spywareblaster <--this prog blocks known bad active x controls, many tracking cookies and puts more sites in restricted zone.
Install> update> enable all protection.
Updates are about once a month and is free.

Several other recommended programs, tips & tricks to help you keep clean & safe online at these links:
