    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.

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

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.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

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager
    RXToolBar\Semantic Insight

    Close control panel.

    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).

    SemanticInsight.exe
    mxrvjdx.exe
    ViewMgr.exe
    lstoyw.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).

    F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,mxrvjdx.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SemanticInsight] C:\Program Files\RXToolBar\Semantic Insight\SemanticInsight.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ViewMgr] C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager\ViewMgr.exe

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

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [hhfha] C:\WINDOWS\system32\lstoyw.exe reg_run

    O18 - Filter: text/html - (no CLSID) - (no file)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\lstoyw.exe
    C:\Program Files\Viewpoint
    C:\Program Files\RXToolBar
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,mxrvjdx.exe

    Reboot into normal mode, turn system restore back on and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know how your system is running.

    Regards Howard :)
