    Hi :

    For WHAT you described, it's best to use the FREE Version of
    "SUPERAntiSpyware" from www.superantispyware.com .

    Firstly These are all spyware so remove them:

    O9 - Extra button: UltimateBet - {94148DB5-B42D-4915-95DA-2CBB4F7095BF} - C:\Program Files\UltimateBet\UltimateBet.exe
    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: UltimateBet - {94148DB5-B42D-4915-95DA-2CBB4F7095BF} - C:\Program Files\UltimateBet\UltimateBet.exe
    O9 - Extra button: PacificPoker - {94EDF7B4-4272-4af3-8F8B-4E2F68E225B7} - C:\PROGRA~1\PACIFI~1\pacificpoker.exe
    O9 - Extra button: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyGaming\PartyPoker\RunApp.exe (file missing)
    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyGaming\PartyPoker\RunApp.exe (file missing)
    O9 - Extra button: Boylepoker Poker - {F313D2F6-B79E-4654-BC77-D14C93FC8947} - C:\Microgaming\Poker\boylesportspokercomMPP\MPPoker.exe

    Secondly Norton is crap.

    Thirdly pay for a good internet security suite such as Mcafee or Trend Micro.

    Been so long since I heard of anyone getting this. I may be wrong......

    Had this problem about a week ago. I tried every so many different scanners but the only one that got rid of it was malwarebytes malware removal. You can download a free trial version but thats all you need.

    I downloaded malwarebytes malware removal and i did a scan, it found a lot of spyware and got rid of it, it seems to be back to normal for now. I thought that it might be the blaster virus as well after looking it up but it hasnt happened since i scanned my computer so hopefully everything will stay the way it is now, thanks for everyones help
