    Download & Run CWshredder from
    http://www.merijn.org/cwschronicles.html

    and make sure you follow the advice about the security updates listed at the bottom of the page, in order to prevent re-infection, otherwise you will be continually reinfected
    the patches are :
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=828026
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/bulletin/ms03-011.asp

    then reboot &
    Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de

    After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then

    press download updates. Beside the download button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of

    the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot

    remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

    then reboot &
    download AdAware 6
    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".

    the current ref file should read 01R241 25.12.2003

    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    then......

    click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives"

    ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL"

    and "Scan my host-files"

    then.........

    go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized

    processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and "Let windows remove files in use

    at next reboot"

    then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it.

    then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left
