    I hope this will run on 64 bit.

    Download http://eric.71.mespages.googlepages.com/LopSD.exe
    by Eric_71 and save it to your desktop.
    On Windows Vista, right-click on LopSD.exe icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.

    Double-click LopSD.exe
    Choose the language by typing of the corresponding letter and press Enter
    Click OK at the informative window
    Type 2 to choose Option 2 (Fix + Hosts), then press Enter
    Wait until the end of the scan have finished.

    A report will be generated, attach the contents of it in your next reply.

    alright so i downloaded it but when i try to run it i get a pop up saying

    windows cannot access the specified device,path,or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item

    so i have spyware doctor (only free though so it doesnt really do anything cept block suff) and it says that there's a high level threat on it (Trojan-PWS.lineage) so i dont know what to do whethr to allow it or not

    I don´t trust spyware doctor Free, it is known for finding many false positives.

    Seems we have to remove CID manually -

    Please download http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTViewIt.exe
    Save it to the Desktop
    Close all windows and double click on OTViewIt
    Select: Scan all Users
    Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
    On completion, the program produces two logs on the Desktop:
    OTViewIt.txt and Extras.txt.

    Please attach the OTViewIt.txt and Extras.txt logs in your reply.
