    Let's see what's installed and auto-starting and if any obvious issues need to be addressed.

    Go here and click the green "Download latest version" link to download and save HiJackThis 2.0.4

    After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then double-click the saved file to install it.

    Allow it to install in its default location - C:\Program Files.

    After it's been installed, start it and allow its main window to load.

    Uncheck "Do not show this window when I start HiJackThis".

    Click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

    When the scan is finished in 30 - 60 seconds, a log file will appear.

    Save that log file.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE log file here.

    Microsoft states that it's an installation or a install setup with a MS product, go to MS support and check it out.
