    Your HJT log appears to be clean. However, it is possible that you have some infection on your system that`s not showing up in HJT.

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

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

    You have not posted an AVG Antispyware log as requested. Please do so in your next reply. You also need to rename HijackThis,exe as per the instructions.

    Then, post a fresh HJT log as well as an AVG Antispyware log.

    Taken from HERE.

    Edit: I have removed all your previous attachments. Wait until you have the AVG Antispyware log, then attach a fresh HJT and the AVG Antispyware log.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).
