    Please do not copy and paste HJT logs. Put them in a notepad and then upload as an attachment.

    Regards Jase :)

    Hello, jal921, and welcome to Techspot :wave:

    Please take a look at the following threads to make your experience here as enjoyable as possible :)

    If you could take a minute to fill in some of your profile information that would be helpful to all members of the forum :)
    Knowing someone's location in the world can be extremely helpful, even if you just put a country.

    Also remember to post any problems or questions that you have in the appropriate forums

    With regards to your problem, have hjt fix these entries:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [smgr] mgrs.exe

    O9 - Extra button: Casino-on-Net - {3015DB92-158E-4b77-9020-85C8E311FBB5} - C:\PROGRA~1\CASINO~1\Casino.exe (file missing)

    The process "C:\WINDOWS\system\svchost.exe" should be running from the System32 folder instead of system so this might be a bad process but i'm not 100% on that

    After you have fixed these entires click Start > Run and enter "C:\%WINDIR%\" (without quotes) and delete mgrs.exe if it is there. (and empty your recycle bin of course ;))

    Then Disable and re-enable system restore (if you're using XP) as per the instructions here

    Then you should be ok

    In future though, could you please leave the top bit on the logs that includes windows version etc :) it's handy to know what OS you have and what IE version.

    Btw Jase123, there are instructions for posting logs as attachments here, just for future reference :)

    P.S. follow the instructions in the link i gave for Jase123 on moving the hijack this file and renaming it BEFORE fixing any entries
