I would be a bit suspicious about agrsmmsg - read more here: http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/agrsmmsg/

gah95on6 is suspected as being spyware.  You probably want to remove it as well as
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [gaSrv] C:\WINDOWS\gaSrv.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [gah95on6] C:\WINDOWS\system32\gah95on6.exe

I'm wondering why msiexec.exe was loaded here - were you installing something at the time?

But I think the dialer may be coming from svchos1at.exe.  
Kazaa is known for stirring up trouble as well.  The lite version is supposed to be 'safer'.

Clear all your R0,R1 & R3 entries
Then remove these as well:

I would also be suspicious of what's inside of C:\DOCUME~1\HP_Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\isDel.bat (open it with notepad - don't double-click it)

Realtek AC97 Audio - Event Monitor. "Sypware" file used surreptitiously monitor ones actions. It is not a sinister one, like remote control programs, but it is being used by Realtek to gather data about customers   This is a nasty process! You should fix it and try to delete it manually!

Still having trouble with this damn dialler, have used the site you recommend and deleted all the nastys.. I still have this damn dialler thing loading up and some agreement popping up each time is sing into the net, obviously i dont agree too this damn agreement, but I continually get this lauch dialler stuff every time, and get disconnected all the time from my internet connection.

Each time after I have been disconnected I get c:\windows\system32\command.com

c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt and then he system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and windows application. Click close t terminate the application??

I never had these problems b4 this irritating dialler 'appeared', how can I kill it? Used sirbountys site above and spybot, still no joy...
paulo111 - try this:

Start->Run->Notepad %systemroo%\system32\autoexec.nt <Enter>
Anything in that file?  If so, please post it.

Also post your hijackthis log please.
