    You need to run the full malware cleaning, in the order given and then ATTACH the logs:

    When through, see this: How to post your Hijackthis log-file as an ATTACHMENT http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic19133.html

    When you rerun HijackThis, please include the entire log in the attachment. The middle section of your log is missing.

    You should not use the System Restore feature when you have malware.

    The reason is because you don't know when the malware got on the system. You may clean some of it out, but the restore points are protected files, so the cleaning programs don't remove any malware from those files. That's why we remove the old restore point when through. If cleaning had started and you use System Restore with malware, the system would get infected- again!

    I see that mbam removed some Trojans. Also note in SuperAntispyware that there are 3 different users getting the Tracking Cookies. You can have the program remove all of them, but you need each account to reset their Cookies:

    For each account: shayan, anaheet and beeta, do this same setting
