please help

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've done everything from run SPYBOT, ADWARE CWSHREADER etc. Spybot detects several items but can't remove them. I've attempted to delete the registry keys associated with smsss.exe to no avail.

I attempted to delete the keys through HIGHJACK THIS safe mode operation, again no effect. Next boot its right back.

I may have more in there that's bad as well, maybe you can tell me?

Run hj and fix these entries.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [start uploading] smsss.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [start uploading] smsss.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [start uploading] smsss.exe

C:\WINDOWS\System32\smsss.exe <---remove this file but dont get confused with the genuine one (smss.exe) check the spelling.Any EXE files have been selected go into HijackThis/Config/Misc/Tools/ and open process manager. Select the  EXE files (if they are there) and click Kill process before deleting.

Post a new log when done.
