    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    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.


    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [system32] C:\WINDOWS\system32\system32.exe

    Fix all 017 entries.<These are from the hijacker.

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\system32.exe

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions for downloading, installing and running the AVG Antispyware programme.

    Post a fresh HJT log as well as the AVG Antispyware log.

    Let me know if you`re still having problems.
