    Please do this. Go here http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and download Hijack This. Un Zip it and 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.

    The log may reveal the source of the problem.

    Welcome to TSG!

    Click on the link below and it will download CWShredder. Close all browser windows. UnZip it and click on the cwshredder.exe and let it do it's thing.

    http://www.spychecker.com/download/download_cwshredder.html

    When it is finished restart your computer.

    Go here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ and download Adaware 6

    Install the program and launch it.

    I strongly recommend that you read the help file to familiarize yourself with the program.

    Before running the scan look at the top of the main window and you will see a Gear Icon. This is where you configure the settings. Click on that and then in the next window that pops up click on the "Scanning" tab on the left side. Under "Drives and Folders" put a check by "Scan within archives" and below that under "Memory and Registry" put a check by all the options there.
    The click on the "Tweak" tab and under "Scanning engine" put a check by "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then......under "Cleaning engine" put a ckeck by "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot" then click "Proceed"

    Next in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on "Check for updates now" and get the latest referencefiles.
    After getting the latest referencefiles you are ready to scan.

    Click "Start" and in the next window make sure "Active in depth scanning" is checked then click "Next" and the scan will begin.

    When it is finished let it fix everything it finds.

    Restart your computer.

    Then go here http://spybot.eon.net.au/index.php?...n&page=download and download Spybot.

    Install the program and launch it.

    Before scanning press "Online" and "Search for Updates" .

    Put a check mark at and install all updates.

    Click "Check for Problems" and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds.

    Restart your computer.

    You have a couple of unknown files that may be viral.
    Go here http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and do an online virus scan.

    Come back here and post another HT log and we'll get rid of what's left.
