    Click on the link in my signature to download Hijack This. Download it and click "Save".

    ItÂ’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.

    The downloaded program will be a .zip file. Extract the .exe file from it and save in the permanent folder you just created.

    Click on Hijackthis.exe to launch the program.

    Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

    The log should open in notepad. Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
