    Welcome,

    The best way is to post a HijackThis log and let an Log Expert to look at it for you.


    Download HijackThis to your desktop
    • Double click on HijackThis on your Desktop
    • Then click on Unzip
    • It will install to Program files by default
    • Then Click Start>>>Run type C:\Program Files click OK
    • Look for a folder called HijackThis
    • Double click on it
    • On the right you will see a Icon of Dynamite with plunger
    • Double click on the Icon
    • Click on Icon and choose "scan system and save a logfile" usually in notepad
    • Copy and Paste the logfile in your next post
    • Using Ctrl+A to copy All and Ctrl+C to copy and Ctrl+V to paste.
