for future reference, attaching the file would be easier to read, anywho:
all process look fine (assuming you want google toolbar)

i have no idea what is so you might want to remove that BHO
you could remove google toolbar and yahoo tollbar if you don't want them

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [92731671071946491856519139946260] C:\Program Files\XP Antivirus\xpa.exe

dont know what that is, might want to remove it, looks fishy.
O12 - Plugin for .spop: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Plugins\NPDocBox.dll
same for that, look it up

everything else looks fine.  however, if you know you were infected, i would be more throught than an AVG scan and hijack this.  try running clamscan (it doesn't have an active agent so you can install with avg).  run a windows defender scan, maybe some other spyware too.

but to answer your general, it looks fine.

If XP Antivirus still active SDFix also removes it.

Download SDFix and save it to your desktop.(either one below)

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :

* Restart your computer
* After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
*  Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
*  Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
*  Choose your usual account.

*  Open the extracted folder and double click "RunThis.bat" to start the script.
*  Type "Y" to begin the script.
*  It will remove the Trojan Services then make some repairs to the registry and prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
*  Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
*  Your system will take longer that normal to restart as the fixtool will be running and removing files.
*  When the desktop loads the Fixtool will complete the removal and display "Finished", then press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
*  Finally open the SDFix folder on your desktop and copy and attach the contents of the results file "Report.txt" back

If you don't know this BHO also fix it.

Worm radar is a legit component of AVG 8.0.

I'm still infected with something, it just popped up. AVG says the file name is autorun.inf (I think, it's closed now).  Originally it was XP antivirus. Anyway, I'm running sdfix and will post back.  Thanks.

i've never used sdfix before, but from what i can tell it looks ok, maybe the original poster will know more.
anyways, if you are still infected, it is best to run a pre-load scan such as avast's boot-time scanner or similar.  you could check out some of the boot CDs available such as bartPE and other bootable cds with virus scanning.

Let's use Combofix.
download ComboFix by sUBs:

You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.
Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log and attach it in your next reply as "Code Snippet".
Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

This link tells you How to use Combofix as well as installing RC if you haven't yet.

1. Open Notepad.
2. Now copy/paste the text between the lines below into the Notepad window:

DriveCleaner 2006 Free

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\~\Browser Helper Objects\{5DD4EAD8-3240-4B68-8A0E-DAA0BD661E32}]

3. Save the above as CFScript.txt on your desktop.
4. Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe. This will start ComboFix again.

After you've done that, runFlash_Disinfector, it
Download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs.
and save it to your desktop.
Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives including your mobile phone. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
Reboot your computer when done.

Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this will help protect your drives from future spread of infection.

I already returned pc to client.  I did delete combo fix icons from root of c and also the desktop but I did not un-install it properly. Oppps.  Shouldn't matter as long as they don't find it and run it, correct?  Thanks
