    Ok,

    First go to Start -> Control panel -> add/remove programs

    Uninstall the following if present:

    • Select the Safe Mode option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.

    Run Hijackthis and Select Do A System Scan Only

    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {EA756889-2338-43DB-8F07-D1CA6FB9C90D} - (no file)
    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {4D1C4E89-A32A-416b-BCDB-33B3EF3617D3} - (no file)
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PC-Checkup] "C:\Program Files\Speeditup Free\PCCheckUp\PCCheckUp.exe" -mini
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [SpeedItUpEX] C:\Program Files\Speeditup Free\SpeedItUp.exe -MINI


    Select Fix Checked

    Close Hijackthis

    Show hidden files through windows explorer

    • On the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.
    • Click the View tab.

    Use Windows Explorer to navigate to and delete the following folder:

    Folders:
