    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I have deleted your other thread. Please don`t open any more threads for this subject.

    It appears you`re running more than one antivirus programme, this is not recommended and can cause conflicts. Uninstall one of them.

    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.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    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).

    susp.exe

    Close task manager.

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

    O2 - BHO: adobepnl.ADOBE_PANEL - {2513A321-CB50-4C5F-91C5-80342AFACFB1} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\adobepnl.dll (file missing)

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

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\susp.exe

    Reboot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an attachment. SEE HERE for instructions.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
