    Boot in Safe Mode.
    Switch System restore OFF, see how here.
    In Windows Explorer, turn on "show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.
    Next, open Windows Task Manager.

    On Windows 95/98/ME, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE.
    On Windows NT/2000/XP, press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC.
    Click the Processes tab, select the process (if there), click End Process for:
    chkdsk.exe
    usai.exe
    MediaGateway.exe
    TIFlCpy.exe
    WHATPU~1.EXE (whatpulse.exe ?)
    PartyPoker.exe

    Next, try to UNinstall anything to do with (not delete yet!):
    C:\Program Files\Media Gateway\MediaGateway.exe
    C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\TISHAR~1\TIFlCpy.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\??crosoft.NET\chkdsk.exe
    C:\Program Files\araa\usai.exe
    C:\PROGRA~1\WHATPU~1\WHATPU~1.EXE
    C:\Program Files\PartyPoker\PartyPoker.exe

    Next, run a HJT scan and (if still there) place a tick-mark in the little square before:
    ...................................................................................................
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,AutoConfigURL = file://C:/windows/config.inf
    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [EarthLink Installer] " /C
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Media Gateway] C:\Program Files\Media Gateway\MediaGateway.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [TIFileRemove] C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\TISHAR~1\TIFlCpy.exe /move
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Yir] C:\WINDOWS\system32\??crosoft.NET\chkdsk.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Crao] C:\Program Files\araa\usai.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WhatPulse] C:\PROGRA~1\WHATPU~1\WHATPU~1.EXE
    O8 - Extra context menu item: &AIM Search - res://C:\Program Files\AIM Toolbar\AIMBar.dll/aimsearch.htm
    O9 - Extra button: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyPoker\PartyPoker.exe
    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyPoker\PartyPoker.exe
    O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)
    Fix ALL your O16 - DPF: entries
    ...................................................................................................
    Now click on the Fix Checked button in HJT.

    When done, from between the above dotted lines, delete the highlighted bold files.
    When a \directory-name\ is bold, delete everything in it, including that directory itself.
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Temp
    Repeat this for ALL [usernames].
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\WINDOWS\Temp (except files dated from TODAY).
    Boot normal. When all OK, switch System Restore back on.
