    REmove Windows Defender. Scan with other scanning software.

    Highjackthis Instructions
    • Make sure you have the LATEST version of HJT (currently v2.0.0.2) it can be downloaded from HERE
    • Run the HijackThis Installer and it will automatically place HJT in C:\Program Files\TrendMicro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe. Please don't change the directory.
    • After installing, the program launches automatically, select Scan now and save a log
    • After the scan is complete please attach your log onto the forums using the paper clip icon above your reply.
      ***Under no circumstances should you add any items to the HJT ignore list. Under no circumstances should you change the directory that highjackthis downloads to.

    looks like you are infected with: Trojan.Vundo and a few other nasties.

    Please run through these steps then post back here with new logs.

    Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions

    I noticed you never ran through the 5 step instructions on another forum, so I am hoping you do these, if you run into problems just ask here and I'll get back to you with more detailed instructions.
