    Malware removal is such a complex subject, that a HJT tutorial would be of little use.

    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).

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = 195.175.37.70:80

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your system.

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

    C:\windows\ALCMTR.EXE

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.

    Regards Howard :)
