    Hi Everyone,

    A few days back I got infected and have been trying to remove the malware myself with limited success. The symptoms I'm seeing are browser popups both when browsing with IE and Firefox. The other scarier symptom is that often in IE when browsing sometimes when I click a link IE freezes and my explorer process seems to die & I have to reboot. I've run the latest versions of ad-aware, AVG, and Windows malicious software removal tool. They all found & removed things but when I run HJT there are still a few stubborn dlls listed that I can't get rid of.

    Thanks very much in advance. Here's my latest HJT log:
