my norton security firewall - keeps telling me that services.exe in the c:\windows\inetdata directory is trying to call out. I've blocked it - I think permanently but still I know it is in the background trying. Neither cwshredder or spybot s&d found a problem with it.

this worries me. Is this a problem? Can I just stop the process and zap the file? below is my highjack file

Hi billing1

Can you verify that you are using the latest version1.59.1 of the cwshredder and if not, update or download CWShredder 1.59.1.

Close all browsers and all other open windows, then run the CWShredder. Select 'FIX' .

When it has finished, please run hijack and place a check in the following entries.
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,SearchURL = http://search.yellow-pages.ws

F1 - win.ini: run=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SERVICES\MSXMIDI.EXE

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5321E378-FFAD-4999-8C62-03CA8155F0B3} - (no file)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AttuneClientEngine] C:\PROGRA~1\AVEO\ATTUNE\bin\Attune_ce.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [xp_system] C:\WINDOWS\INETDATA\SERVICES.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [xpsystem] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SERVICES\MSXMIDI.EXE
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [xp_system] C:\WINDOWS\INETDATA\SERVICES.EXE
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [xpsystem] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SERVICES\MSXMIDI.EXE

O16 - DPF: {11120607-1001-1111-1000-110199901123} - ms-its:mhtml:file://C:\foo.mht!http://66.230.145.49...m::/on-line.exe

Close ALL IE. browsers and all other open windows, except hijackthis.,
Then select Fix Checked

These items below in blue can be fixed if you choose, they are unnecessary programs running at start and/or that hog resources: Having hijack fix it does not remove the program, just their start up command.
O4 - Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE
Launches common MS Office components to run in the background, hogging resources.


Spykiller
I would remove spykiller and use Spybot 1.3 . It is free and will do all that spykiller does without the false positives as a means to purchase.
Please click Start-> Settings-> Control panel-> add/remove and select and remove the following program:
spykiller
And then delete this folder
C:\PROGRAM FILES\ SPYkiller <---folder only
and fix this entry from hijack
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [SpyKiller] C:\Program Files\SpyKiller\spykiller.exe /startup

To unhide hidden files,
  • On desktop doubleclick My Computer and select View and click Details
  • Again select View >Folder Options
  • Under the View tab,
  • Tick show all files
  • Untick hide file extensions for all file types. Select Apply then OK
Restart in Safe mode and open an IE and select Tools> Internet options and delete all temporary internet files and tick "delete offline content"
Then find and delete the following files
C:\ temp <--delete all possible files in this folder
C:\windows\ temp <--delete all possible files in this folder

While still in safe mode, find and delete the following files/folders if they still exist:
C:\PROGRA~1\AVEO <--delete only this folder
C:\WINDOWS\INETDATA\SERVICES.EXE <--delete only this file
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SERVICES\MSXMIDI.EXE <--delete only this file

Restart your system, and repost here with a new log from hijack
