hi, welcome to TSG.

Download hijack this from the link below.Please do this. Click here:

http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe

to download HijackThis. Click scan and save a logfile, then post it here so
we can take a look at it for you. Don't click fix on anything in hijack this
as most of the files are legitimate.


where does it say it is?


* Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here


http://www.ewido.net/en/

* Install ewido.
* During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
* Launch ewido
* It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
* On the left side of the main screen click update
* Click on Start and let it update.
* DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.


* Click here for info on how to boot to safe mode if you don't already know
how.


How to boot to safe mode

* Now copy these instructions to notepad and save them to your desktop. You
will need them to refer to in safe mode.


* Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in
safe mode:



* Now run Ewido:

* Click on scanner
* Put a check by the following before you scan:
o Binder
o Crypter
o Archives
* Click the Start Scan button to start the scan.
* During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
* When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
* Save the report to your desktop




Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it.
Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you
can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!




download ccleaner and run it.
