Ok. The link you provided for FixDxc.reg took me to a white page with writing on it, (lotsa HKLM stuff). Did a HJT and fixed anything referring to dxc, i got an error message while trying to fix one of the 020- AppInit DLLs. And yeah kerio is a bit strange to me, is it possible installing while infected has done something wrong?
Anyway, here's HJT log.

Yep, looks like DxcDirect has gone!

I suggest you try a scan with AVG Anti-Spyware again. Hopefully it should complete the scan now.

Could you possibly post a screen shot of the strange blue files?

If you now want to uninstall AVG and install avast!, I'd recommend a registry scan with the trial version of TuneUp utilities after uninstalling AVG and before installing avast!

http://www.tune-up.com/

Here's a simple guide to using Kerio in advanced mode:

http://www.geocities.com/dontsurfinthenude/kerio_setup.htm

You need to update Sun Java and check in Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions because they can be a security risk.

I've just noticed you also seem to have CA AntiVirus installed as well as AVG. Two AV's on the same system is not a good idea: they will fight over files like two dogs over a bone and this can lead to system instability.

VET seems to be the name for CA down under:

http://www.vet.com.au/html/software/index.html

Maybe it's something which came with the computer and expired, or something a previous user installed? Anyway, it needs to be uninstalled.

The mysterious blue files are system or program files which are normally hidden to prevent the user deleting anything critical. I think I asked you to enable 'view hidden files' in order to look for a malware file, which often hide themselves like this.  Hidden files are normally legitimate though- the ones in your screen shots are all normal. You can hide them again by opening an explorer window (eg My Documents), going to:

Tools>Folder Options>View and clicking the 'Do not show hidden files and folders' button.

HijackThis! a lot of sections dedicated to IE because it gets hijacked a lot:

R0, R1, R2, R3, O2, O3, O5, O6, O8, O9, O11, O12, O13, O15, O16 are all for IE.

Firefox may show up in N1-N4.

As HijackThis! shows applications which run at startup, you won't see Firefox as a program unless it's running while you do the scan.

Actually there is a hidden file in C: that looks suspicious:

installer5.exe

Before you hide them again, I would send this to VirusTotal: if it's detected as malware, make sure you delete it!

SWeet! Thanks soo much frank. And everybody else, essexboy ur advice re alcan wrm worked a treat too. Will check out this installer5.exe as u said. Will remove CA/ VET as well, and put avast on, (downloaded n ready to install ;D). Will also run other scans again to be sure, but you think he's clean?
Also, when re-booting, i have to manually start his Kerio, is this normal? Am only using basic mode, and cant find the button to change to advanced.
Once again, thanks soooo much! ;D

I had to ditch Kerio for the same reason: it worked fine for a year then one day just wouldn't start on its own. I had the paid version and Sunbelt support couldn't help me. You might be better off switching to Zone Alarm, which is what I did.

If you still want to find advanced mode, I describe how to activate it here:
