Hi guys,

I stupidly fell into a trap of downloading what looked like a Flash update but was in fact a package of a whole heap of nasties! The first noticable symptom is "Virus Alert!" appearing in the Task Bar by the Date/Time. This phrase seems to pop up alongside ANY System DateTime being displayed. Also I think my desktop has been hijacked as it changes colour and turns white. A load of restrictions have been put on any account I log into, can't run Task Manager, open Explorer, many Start menu items have been removed. On top of this there are a load of Fake Windows Alerts popping up telling me I need to download Anti Virus software, which then link to some dodgy website. Ran AdAware but it didn't help and ran my McAfee On-Demand scan, which also hasn't found much (just a few trojan files which were deleted but reappear on reboot).

I have attached my HijackThis log, if someone could show me which items can be fixed and address any of the other issues I'd be eternally grateful!
