    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as ATTACHMENTS into this thread, only after doing the above.

    At TimeParadoX's request, i have had a look at your log. It appears that you are not using any antivirus software. This is a huge security risk and i suggest you imstall one from the instructions given to you above.

    Once you have followed TimeParadoX's instructions I will check you new logs.
    I would also like to see a virus scan report too.

    racer_x_090: Your HJT log is clean as a whistle. However, unless you rename HijackThis.exe as per these instructions HERE, it`s hard to tell if it`s really clean as some malware can hide from HijackThis.exe. Post a fresh HJT log after renaming it. I agree with rik, that you`re not running any antivirus software. It`s probably a good idea to install and run one of the free antivirus programmes in the link that Timeparadox gave you.

    Regards Howard :)

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I already said that. However, unless HijackThis.exe is renamed to Hijackthis1991.exe or something else, there`s no way of knowing if it`s clean or not. That`s because HijackThis.exe is targeted by some malware and the malware will hide from the results of HijackThis.exe.

    I hope that makes it clear.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
