    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode

    First in safe mode click on My Computer then go to View > Folder Options. Click on the "View" tab and make sure "Show all files" is ticked and uncheck "Hide file extensions for known file types". Click "Like Current Folder" then click "Apply" then "OK"

    Now find and delete:

    The c:\windows\system\TCPSVS.32.EXE file

    Also please do this. Click here to download Hijack This. Click on the Hijackthis.exe.

    Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

    Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.

    *Note: When you download Hijack This Do Not download it to a temp folder or to the desktop. Create a permanent folder somewhere like in My Documents and name it Hijack This and put it in that folder.
