    Well, for a start run the program Ad-Aware from Lavasoft. It is very user-friendly, I have only heard of a single case where it identified a legitimate program (Teknum Systems updater). You can pretty much remove anything it finds without any worries. If that doesn't fix it, you might need to use one of the other programs, which can be hazardous if used incorrectly. Someone who has more experience with Hijack This will help.
