Download hijack this from the link below.Please do this. Click here:

to download HijackThis. Click scan and save a logfile, then post it here so
we can take a look at it for you. Don't click fix on anything in hijack this
as most of the files are legitimate.




Do you have Sun's java, or Microsoft's java VM?
* Go to Control Panel > Java. On the General tab under Temporary Internet
Files" click the "Delete Files" button to clear the Java cache. Or open
Java and clcik clear cache for older version of Java! If you have
Microsoft's uninstall it and download Sun's java.

Go here and downlaod the latest version of java, once
downloaded, go to add/remove and uninstall all previous versions of java
from add/remove and then instlall the latest version you just downloaded!
