    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Delete all files in AVG Antispyware quarantine.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open. Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your system.

    Run HJT again and see if those entries have gone. If they have, you`re good to go.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
