  1. I've tried AdAware, Spybot Superantispyware Secunia - None of them show anything. Any ideas much appreciated.
    Thanks

    You have the old version of HijackThis installed.
    This must be uninstalled through add\remove Programs before continuing

    You also have uTorrent installed, file sharing program.
    Depending upon what you download and from where, this is most likely the reason for Malware infection. I advise for you to uninstall it (anyway no one can help you until you do, as you will likely be re-infected anyway)

    You have F-secure installed. Obviously you have not been protected by having this program running. Advised to fully uninstall and try Avira free AntiVirus instead (strongly advise)

    Once all this is done, then go here: UPDATED 8-step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions
