There is a way to kill beagle/bagel/boggle or whatever it is called now

Please download the following file but make sure to save it as Combo-Fix.exe.
Combofix

Doubleclick Combo-Fix.exe
Follow the prompts.
Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.

When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), it should open a log, combofix.txt.
Post this log in your next reply together with a new HiJackThis log.

Thanks for the tips...but, again no luck. I've even turned off the digital signature recognition from microsoft. Well, I've got today off after doing a double shift. So, here I go....  :-\

Could you run combofix ?  If not then try

Please download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) and save it to your Desktop.
  • Close all other windows before proceeding.
  • Double-click on dss.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When it has finished, dss will open two Notepads main.txt and extra.txt  -- please copy (CTRL+A and then CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.
