    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is infected by at least one virus.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an attachment, into this thread, only after doing the above.

    I have moved this thread to our security and the web forum.

    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.

    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    Blehlicense.exe
    CityTest.exe

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Daleheartsoftwaredefy] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\FORDFORDALEHEART\Blehlicense.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Memoinfo] C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\APPLIC~1\THIRDD~1\CityTest.exe

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Your HJT log is clean.

    Installing AVG Antispyware will automatically replace Ewido, so you don`t need to do anything.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.
