    Hello kingovallmedia, My name is DFW and I will be assisting you with your malware issues .

    Please be patient as I need some time to review your Hijackthis log and i will post back recommendations for repairs.
    As I am still on training, everything that I post to you, must be checked by an Admin or Moderator. Thus, there may be a tiny bit of a delay between posts, but it shouldn't be too long.
    • Whatever repairs we make, are for fixing your computer problems only and by no means should be used on another computer.
    • Continue to respond to this thread until I give you the All Clean! If you have any question or you're stuck in there please reply it to me. I will try my best to help you!
    • Please bookmark or favourite this page. In case you need it as reference or etc.

    Please follow the instructions below to download, install, create a desktop shortcut and post your hijackthis log.

    Go to Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch HijackThis.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then save the log and then the log will open in notepad.
