I am having trouble removing a virus which has hijacked my start page and also inserted a number of web sites into my favorites. Below is my Hijack this scan log. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated - I've been working on this for far too long.

Hi sc12345,

Fix these

C:\WINDOWS\zhelp.exe
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEeng.exe  -- not sure why this is here

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [zhelp] C:\WINDOWS\zhelp.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [IEengine] C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEeng.exe -- not sure

O4 - Global Startup: TFTP3748
O4 - Global Startup: TFTP3960


Once you fix do these


a) Start --> run --> Type in "msconfig" and press "Enter"
goto Startup tab
Disable all the applications there except anti-virus.Reboot the machine and check if the webpage is still hijacked.
If not, then enable one at a time in the same startup tab and find the application or process that might cause this
at startup

b) Turn off system restore

c) Remove temporary internet files, folders and cookies
Also remove windows Temp files going to

1) Start --> run --> typein:  %systemroot%/temp
2) Start  --> run --> typein: %temp%

still working my way through it. first, the system would not allow me to fix the two TFTP files. It said the files may be in use. Second, as I go through the process re-enabling the applications one at a time, do I have to re-boot every time? thanks
