Unable to delete unknown files in winsock lsp found by hijack this.

After running Hijack This and deleting found nasty processes I am unable to delete 4 unknown files in Winsock lsp.  I am fighting a browser hijacker called search 200.  When Internet Explorer loads and you check the allowed sites in the pop up blocker settings it always lists lop.com and search200.com as allowed.  following is the hijackthis log.

Hello rider164 =)

Use LSPFix to delete those O10 files >> http://www.spychecker.com/program/lspfix.html

Thanks for the quick reply.
I ran LSPFix and it did not identify any problem lsp files.
It listed mswsock, winmr.dll, aplsp.dll and rsvpsp.dll but did not recomend removal of any of these.
hmmmmm aplsp.dll is really Nasty one, so we are sure that we have to remove it, and so you can Manually remove it using LSPFix :)

I removed aplsp.dll.  Now lop.com and search200.com do not show up in allowed sites in the pop up blocker.  I am still getting a search toolbar across the bottom of the internet explorer page which I thought was from search200 but I am not sure.
hmmmm try Using ToolbarCop to remove the unwanted Toolband, Toolbar Icons and BHO:

Also make sure that you have these tools on your system,
AdAware ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/adaware.html
SpyBot  ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/spybot.html
CoolWebShredder ==> http://www.softpedia.com/public/cat/10/17/10-17-150.shtml
Stinger ==> http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger

Turn off ur System Restore before cleaning the system if its WinME\XP >> http://www.pchell.com/virus/systemrestore.shtml
Then Run all of them one by one in safemode and delete everything they detect.
Then delete the temporary internet files and history of IE
and run Disk Cleanup on ur hard drive to delete those temp and junk files.
Restart back in Normal Mode to check for the problems now ?? :)

It appears that I am hijacker free.  I am running windows XP, Norton Internet Security, Adaware, Spybot, CoolWebShredder and Stinger.  I ran these in safe mode and cleaned the hard drive per your instructions.  It looks like all is well at this time.
Thanks, Rider164
