I get these errors when trying to connect to a web site via dial up connection. There was never a problem with this connection previously.

Errors are ---

FIREFOX: "connection was refused when attempting to contact"
MSIE: "could not open search page"

Here's the HJT log file ---

O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider 'osmim.dll' missing

Looks like you may need to reinstall your ISP software (AT&T?). Some kind of bug may have killed it, maybe? You've got some pretty dangerous software running, there. :)

I'm doing this for a friend.

I suggested he uninstall Napster and I'm going in manually to get rid of 'osmim.dll'.

Any other suggestions?

Sounds to me that your dial up just pooped out. Used to happen to me on a daily basis. Haven't had it happen since I went to Cable.

The .DLL file you are proposing to remove is needed by your ISP connector, it looks like. Maybe find it and put it in its proper place or restore it, instead of deleting it?

What are these three programs and why are they running?

C:\Program Files\ltmoh\Ltmoh.exe

Many trojans use dialers or pingers that interrupt normal access. Have you run AdAware & SpyBot & other trojan detection software recently? (Run all of them in sequence to find the most stuff.) I'll bet that machine is hosting a few bugs ...

I would ignore the other advice for now as its not quite accurate. Lets get you fixed up. That dll is actually a piece of malware, and should NOT be edited via Hijackthis. We have some things to do first:

You are using an outdated version of hijackthis. Please download the newer version.

Then post a new log
