    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is infected with a variety of nasties.

    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 an attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    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).

    PRINTV~1
