    I would really appreciate some expert help with getting rid of this stupid pirate that my brother picked up on my computer while doing "research."

    Hi and welcome to TSG,

    There is a newer version of Hijack This so please download it from the link that follows. Also, you need to move it from your temporary Internet files to its own folder. It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

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

    Please download and run the following programs:

    CWSHREDDER

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4086.html

    Close all browser windows, open cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" and let it run.

    Then restart your computer.

    IMPORTANT! To help prevent this from happening again, you should install all the Microsoft security patches and critical updates.

    AD-AWARE

    Go here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
    and download Ad-Aware SE Personal

    Install the program and launch it.

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

    Then, in the main window: Click Start and under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

    Then, deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

    To start the scan, 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 then click Next)

    Restart your computer.

    SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY

    http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

    Open Spybot Search & Destroy (Click Start, Programs, Spybot S&D (Advanced Mode). Click online, Search for updates, Download all available updates. Close all Browser windows, Click ''Check for Problems''. Anything that needs to be fixed it will show in red and have a green check in the box to the left. Click ''Fix Selected Problems'', Then restart your computer.

    Then, after rebooting, please post another log and we’ll see what’s left to get rid of.
