    Java Byte

    # Click Start | Settings | Control Panel
    # Click the Java Plugin Icon
    # Click the Cache tab
    # Click the Clear button and click OK to confirm
    # Note: Please repeat this procedure for each "Java Plugin" button in your Control Panel

    Turn off and back on restore points

    SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
    AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
    SpyBot S&D http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

    DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
    definition updates
    and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
    they say.

    In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
    SpyBot - After an update run immunize and make sure teatimer is enabled

    Do these before the next step.

    Then get HiJack This http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html, put
    it in a permanent folder, run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the
    log here.
