Hiya

Looks like a hijacker.

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de

After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

That ought to get rid of most of your spyware.

When you've done all that, go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Reboot in between running spybot & Hijackthis

Regards

Consider downloading Ad-Aware 6. That would clean out the unwanted files for you. Go here for the free Ad-aware 6 Personal Build 181: http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download/

Then please launch the program ... on the start-up screen, you will need to first run the Webupdate Feature (globe at the top), or click "check for updates" on the start screen to get the Reference File up to date.

Please use either the Custom Scan with Memory and Both registry scans ON. Also.... make sure that you activate IN-DEPTH scanning.

Then, see that you have these options checked:
Under Ad-aware 6 Settings, Tweaks, Scanning Engine:
"Unload recognized processes during scanning."
Under Ad-aware 6 Settings, Tweaks, Cleaning Engine:
"Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion."
"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

Next ...

Run Ad-aware 6.
Mark the objects you wish to eliminate for removal. There are many options available with a right-click.
Make a Quarantine only if you do not have the Auto-Quarantine option ON.
Then choose "Next" to remove the chosen objects.
Finally ... Reboot
