Please download LSP Fix

Then use these instructions to remove the bad DLL:

1. Run LSPFix.
2. Check 'I know what I'm doing'.
3. Select lspak.dll
4. Click the right-pointing arrow (moves it to the "remove" page).
5. Click 'Finished'.
6. Restart your computer in "Safe Mode" (F5 or F8 when starting Windows).
7. Delete the following file: c:\windows\system\lspak.dll
8. Restart your computer and bring it up in normal mode.
9. Run hijack this and post a new log

Hi,

Thanks for the fast reply, but unfortunately the problem has grown significantly.

The laptop was responding slower and slower as resources were being used up by the spyware (I assume) and then developed a nasty habit of crashing and restarting on me.  It is now refusing to startup!!

It will boot normally and ask me to pick my profile, but when it starts loading up the desktop it just sits there and does nothing.  The desktop wallpaper loads, but no task bar loads.  The mouse cursor is on screen and responds, as does Ctrl Alt Del (which shows no applications running and CPU usage at 0%) so I know that it hasn't locked up totally.  This is now a huge problem as I use the laptop a lot and it is now an expensive paperweight, any thoughts on what to do?

I have access to another pc which I am using to post this and will check back regularly to see if you have any suggestions.

Thanks in advance Smiley

Can you boot into safe mode.If so download these programs from the computer you have access to and run them.Also if you can run hijack this again and post a new log after you run adaware and spybot

AD-AWARE

Install the program and launch it.

First, in the bottom right-hand corner of the main window
click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download
the latest reference files.

Then, in the main window: Click Start and under Select
 a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

Then, deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

To start the scan, click the Next button.

When the scan is finished mark everything for removal
and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose select
all from the drop down menu and then click Next)

Restart your computer.


SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY


Open Spybot Search & Destroy (Click Start, Programs,
Spybot S&D (Advanced Mode). Click online, Search for updates,
Download all available updates. Close all Browser windows,
Click ''Check for Problems''. Anything that needs to be fixed
it will show in red and have a green check in the box to the left.
Click ''Fix Selected Problems'', Then restart your computer.

No can do unfortunately.  I've tried booting in safe mode and also booting from disk.  It reaches the same point and then just stops.  I've also tried leaving it on the desktop screen for an hour just incase it was booting really really slowly, but it doesn't make any difference.

When it is sitting at the (depressingly) blank desktop I can use the New Task option in the Task Manager.  Strangely it lets me access anything in My Documents, but will not let me into My Computer.  If I try to open (for example) a Word document if fails when it tries to open Word.

Is there anyway I can fix this problem from the limited Dos commands that XP offers?

I'm assuming that this is the result of a virus rather than just spyware contamination.  I'm just praying that I am not going to have to format the hard drive and start again Sad

That's not good Huh?
I've heard this happen for a few reasons
but, are you able to get back to Windows yet?

Are you using the CD that came with the laptop?
Have you made any changes in the bios
You can try entering cmos setup and Restore defaults, I've heard this help with that error.
I would take note of the setup now.....
Also, ensure you disconnect any external hardware devices connected

I haven't altered any of the bios settings.

How do I get into CMOS?  Is it part of the Bios???

I think he meant the BIOS. Enter the BIOS and set the settings back to default
