cxtpls_loader_ff.exe has appeared in my temp file and every attempt to delete it has failed including McAfee Shredder, Ad-Aare and Spybot-S&D. When I go on the internet "cxtpls_loader_ff.exe" keeps trying to access the internet, five times in a row. I have not allowed it. Any help will be appreciated Thanks

My HJT log follows:

Boot into SAFE MODE and delete the following

These too:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [gah95on6] C:\WINDOWS\system32\gah95on6.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AutoLoaderAproposClient] "C:\temp\CXTPLS~1.EXE" /PC=CP.CDT3 /ShowLegalNote=nonbranded /ForSupportedBrowsers

Then boot to safe mode, delete this file

C:\WINDOWS\System32\gah95on6.exe <---this file

In safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.

Empty the recycle bin.

Boot back into Normal Mode, post a new log
