XP Home - Removed Winlogon Spyware - Cant delete registry entries

I ran autoruns, found some spyware - used the recovery console to delete it.  Logged back on and tried to use autoruns to remove the winlogon entry and got access denied.  Opened reg edit and tried there with same result.  Permissions are everyone full.  Only this key or any reference to that key in the registry has the access denied.  If I use ERD I can remove it.  I can not remove it in safe mode either.  This is happening on two machines from two different clients.  Hijackthis posted for both, you can see the winlogon entry says file deleted.  

Any ideas why I can't clean this up now that the spyware has been removed?

Those are leftovers or part of Vundo/Conhook trojan. Combofix will unhook the Winlogon entry and allow removal.

Download and Run ComboFix (by sUBs) You must run it directly from your Desktop.

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

Disable your Anti-virus and any real-time Anti-spyware monitors that are running.
Then double click Combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a log for you. Upload that log in your next reply with a new HijackThis log.  

Please do not post the log into the comment window. Use "Attach File" under the comment window to post the log.

Note 1: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall.
Note 2: Remember to re-enable your Anti-virus and Anti-spyware.

NOTE: If you have issues connecting to your network or internet after running combofix you can either simply reboot, or do the following:
* Going to Control Panel > Network Connections.
* Right click on their Network icons & select "Repair"
or
Alternately, if the Network icon appears in the notification area in the lower right corner of Desktop, right-click it, and then click Repair from the shortcut menu.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: Combofix will typically fix most and sometimes all Malware entries but many times a script is also needed to finish cleaning up. So please keep CF until advised whether you need the script or not.
