    Go and read the Trojan Pakes and other nasties preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    If you ever have to post a log file again, please post it as an attachment and not copy and pasted.

    Your HJT log is clean.

    Have HJT fix the following inactive entries.

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

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {259F616C-A300-44F5-B04A-ED001A26C85C} - (no file)

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: pptp16 - pptp16.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your system.

    I did ask for an AVG Antispyware log, but you haven`t posted one.

    Regards Howard :)

    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).

    C:\Program Files\Warcraft 3<It is infected with a trojan.

    Delete all the following infected bold files. They are all infected with trojans etc.

    C:\Documents and Settings\Kimbo\My Documents\Downloads\BearShare PRO v5.2.5.3 + Crack-REA.zip/BearShare PRO v5.2.5.3 + Crack-REA/BSPROINSTALL.exe

    C:\Documents and Settings\Kimbo\My Documents\Installers\Other\BearShare Pro 4.6.0 +Crack (Works 100%)\crack.exe

    C:\Program Files\Warcraft 3<Delete the entire folder.

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

    Run the Ccleaner programme as per the instruction in this thread HERE.

    Stop downloading pirated, virus/trojan riddled software and buy only the legit games etc, otherwise, your system will just get reinfected.
