    Read on how to remove spyware from this post from some of the experts on this website https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    What I have done personally was download Ad-aware SE, CCleaner, SS&D, and SpywareBlaster

    You are running an outdated version of HijackThis.

    You can obtain the latest version from the link in my signature.

    You may wish to copy and paste these instructions on notepad for easier reference later.

    Boot into safe mode under your normal user name. See how HERE

    Next turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE

    Go to start > run and type services.msc. Press the enter key.
    Search for the following services(if there) double click to select stop if they are running. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok for each service you disable.


    Open your task manager by pressing holding ctrl, alt and pressing del. Alternatively, use ctrl + shift + esc. Go to the processes tab, and end the following processes, if found:


    After that, run HijackThis and fix the following entries, if found (do this by placing a tick in the check boxes beside these entries and clicking "Fix checked"):

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [setup] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\system32\sstfnttw.dll",realset

    O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

    O15 - Trusted Zone: http://www.dmdc.osd.mil
    O15 - Trusted Zone: www.theleafchronicle.com

    Close HJT.

    Navigate in Windows Explorer and delete the following files and folders in bold.


    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Next, go on to the thread MMdominator posted and follow the instructions exactly.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HJT, ComboFix and AVG Antispyware logs from normal mode as attachments into this thread.

    Your friendly Momok =)
