Lets do some overkill as this is an old one

Go here http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/ and click on Downloads to get the peper trojan uninstaller.

Run the peper fix - Just click on the uninst.exe and let it run. When it is finished it will just close. There will be no dialogue. Also you must be connected to the internet for the uninstaller to be effective.

Download CWShredder http://www.intermute.com/products/cwshredder.html
Close all browser windows,
Open cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" and let it run.

Download About:Buster from:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4289.html
Double click aboutbuster.exe, click Update, click OK, click Start, then click OK.

Print this and boot to safe mode (Start tapping F8 at the first black screen after power up)
Fix these with HJT
