    You are asking for trouble when you use that piece of crap holey software called Internet Explorer!
    Go to and install and USE Firefox from now on!

    Then run Ewido again, as per Read: How to remove Trojans and its ilk!

    followed by:
    Follow these instructions EXACTLY.
    Put HijackThis in e.g. C:\Program Files\HJT and NOT in Temp or on the Desktop!.

    Then Read: How to post your Hijackthis log-files as an attachment, but do that in the Security Forum!.

    i have tired all the malware/adware removers people have suggested only 1 has been free ewido that on the 1st scan found over 600 items which it took off but i was still having problems so i re scanned and it has now found 186 more? i think i have some kind of virus that keeps re installing itself everytime i reboot my pc, is there anyway to get rid off this?

    Also just uploaded my log file into HJT can some tell me how to get rid of the following


    2) O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winupdates] C:\Program Files\winupdates\winupdates.exe /auto

    3) O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IST Service] C:\Program Files\ISTsvc\istsvc.exe

    4) O4 - Global Startup: winlogin.exe

    5) O21 - SSODL: Web Event Logger - {79FEACFF-FFCE-815E-A900-316290B5B738} - blank (file missing)

    try running hijackthis from safe mode with command prompt to remove them properly, CTRL ALT DEL run task etc to run hijakthis, then remove them

    go back to CMD and del the files from the program files folders

    also clear out your windows prefetch and dll cache whilst your at it,
    run cleanmgr task to start disk cleaning manager without starting explorer aswell
