    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    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.>

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.>

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.>

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

    Security Toolbar

    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).


    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).

    O3 - Toolbar: SecurityToolbar - {736b5468-bdad-41be-92d0-22ae2ddf7bcb} - C:\Program Files\Security Toolbar\Security Toolbar.dll

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [568721c3.exe] C:\Documents and Settings\Anaximander\Local Settings\Application Data\568721c3.exe

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\Program Files\Security Toolbar
    C:\Documents and Settings\Anaximander\Local Settings\Application Data\568721c3.exe


    Reboot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

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

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
