    Download the following programmes:

    1.Hijack this
    2.Spybot &
    3.Adaware


    Update programs 2 & 3, then run the programmes, have them fix anything they find.

    When you have run and fixed everything with Spybot Search and Destroy and AdAware, please reboot before scanning, as not everything can be removed when Windows is running

    When you have done all that, launch Hijack This, then press Scan, and press Save Log

    This will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.

    open that file
    Go to Edit | Select all
    Now click Edit | copy to copy it

    Do not change anything just yet
    Come back to the forum, Right Click and paste its contents here

    Someone will come along and have a look at it, and advise you what still needs to be removed
