One of these entries does not seem to appear in the list, even though it does appear in the logfile?.
Strange, maybe because your running in safe mode ! Best that you post all logs. So post logs from HJT, MBAM, SDfix. Also try the rescue disc.

Seems like the braviax and regedit files are still re-appearing in Hijack This. I'll try run Avast now and see if it can remove the braviax file.

Finally with regard to Avira, my cd drive is out of action so I haven't been able to try this.. Is there any non-cd way of doing this?

While running a full avast scan I got an error message saying "avast has detected a virus in the operating memory. Since it is very dangerous to work with the computer while the virus is active, it is strongly recommended that you restart the computer and let avast scan all your data in the boot phase, before the virus can be activated." So I'm going to try to do this but from previous experience Im not confident the boot time scan will work as I've tried it before. It doesn't sound too good considering the amount of programs I've just run that there is still such a big issue!

If it were me I would have removed the system from the Internet then backed up my needed data then completely removed the hard drive partition with FDISK then added it back then install XP.

I have both SP2 and SP3 CDs and then I would install them and only then would I connect the system to the Internet and get the remaining SP3 updates.

Why do I know?

I had to do this on my XP Pro system a little while ago as it began acting weird and probably it is just a Windows thing that it really needs a good cleanup after a while just like any abode that likes to accumulate dust bunnies and superfluous stuff after a while.

Cheers, I've considered doing that actually. I had to get Dell to send me the xp disk, but as my cd drive does not work I'm stuck for the moment. I'm planning on trying to use my girlfriends laptop to copy the cd files across to and then copy across to my external hard drive and see if I can re-install from there. Not sure if it will work though. I only have SP2 but will look at getting SP3.
Finally I'm, not too sure what you mean by removing the hard drive partition with FDISK or how to go about doing it?

I picked up a working used CD drive from my local PC store for $5.00

Microsoft to the rescue:

I've ordered a new cd/dvd drive and will reinstall if I don't resolve the issue before the new drive arrives in the post.
I've noticed that this file seems to be perhaps the biggest problem. C:\WINDOWS\system32\_scui

I've sent it off to just now. Malwarebytes always picks it up (along with the various other files) but it successfully removes the others but say it will delete this upon reboot. However it never seems to do this. And if I try and manually delete the file I cannot, and it says "Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use".

Anybody know if this file is important? And also of any way to delete it if it is not important? I have tried disconnecting from the internet to delete but that did not work either..

Any help much appreciated!

Try combofix and see if that helps
Remember to close all programs (even your antivirus) before letting it run a scan.
Then post back a log from combofix
It is not possible to divide anything by zero
