    Please go to the link below and download HiJackThis by Merijn Bellekom:

    Save it to a permanent folder.

    ***NOTE***Do not FIX anything without a log analyzer's guidance. MOST of what's listed is necessary for your computer to operate normally.

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html


    Alternate download links:

    http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html

    HiJackThis download link



    Download and unzip to a permanent folder of your own creation.

    Open HiJackThis. Click "Scan". Then, in the lower left corner, click "Save Log".

    Save it to your permanent HiJackThis folder (or floppy disk if necessary).

    The log will open in Notepad. Click "Edit" then "Select All".

    Copy and paste the log back to this thread.



    After that's done, open HiJackThis. Click "Config" and put a checkmark in the "Make backups before fixing items" box.

    You are running hijackthis from a temp folder. Please move that to a permanent folder so you don't loose your backups.

    Create a permanent folder on your hard drive like c:\hijackthis

    Click My Computer, then C:\
    In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
    That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there, and double click to run it.

    Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are updated and configured as described


    CWshredder from http://www.subratam.org/?page=removal
    Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
    Download Adaware SE http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/


    then
    Run CWSHREDDER,

    Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "FIX" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.
    and make sure you have all of Microsoft security updates

    then reboot &

    Run Sybot S&D

    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 &


    Run ADAWARE

    Install the program and launch it.

    First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

    From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

    Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

    Now to scan just click the Next button.

    When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)


    Restart your computer.


    then post a new hijackthis log
