Default event log "unable to complete the operation on" "the interface is unknown" windo

Hi

After i have removed some spyware/trojans I starting getting this error message when I try to access the eventlog:

event log "unable to complete the operation on" eg. system "the interface is unknown" windows xp.

Also I can add programs to Symantec internet security 2005 firewall, reinstalling don't fix it. Some programs also start to fail, "bad image" or you don't have admin premissions.

Reinstalling SP2 or using system restore for XP don't fix any thing.

I have scanned my computer with 4 antispyware programs, and 4 antivirus programs and check it with hijackthis so my machine should be clean.

Does any one have any Idears?

maybe you removes something with hijackthis which your system needs

go to start, run and type "sfc /scannow"
then it will rpompt you for the XP CD, put it in and let it scan your computer for corrupted or missing files

You can also "Google" the error message or look in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Well I fould out that the "Eventlog service" and the "Task scheduler" service has been deleted. I have reinstall them and they are working now. But Norton Internet Security comes out with a script error nisplug.dll.
