It may be a legitimate file,

Damnit!!
I have restarted my PC and re-ran DDS without ending any processes I thought to be suspicious,
Does this tell anymore information?
I have also un-installed a software called Xampp which I thought might be the problem...
Thanks

Excellent. The httpd processes sound legit then  :)

My suggestions now to you:

Update your Avast to version 6
(I had to deinstall & reinstall in my case, may not be necessary in yours)

Apply Windows XP Service Pack 3

AWESOME! you guys rock!
I don't seem to be having any problems. I have updated to sp 3 and also avast version 6.
I'm running Ccleaner it seems to be fixing some registry items which have (I'm guessing) been deleted/quarenteened during the infection.

So am i right in thinking I am now safe updated and ready to use my PC as normal again?
