    Thanks for looking and have a Merry Christmas.

    You're running HijackThis from the wrong location. Please delete your existing copy of HJT and do the following.

    Make sure you have the LATEST version of HJT (currently from HERE.

    Double-click on the file you just downloaded.
    Click on the "Install" button to install.
    It will by default install to the directory - C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis
    Please do not change the default install location.

    Very Important.

    You need to rename HijackThis.exe to Crusty.exe. This is because some malware can hide from HijackThis.exe. Follow these instructions in order to do so.

    Go to the C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe file and right click on HijackThis.exe. Choose rename. Click in the title box and hit the enter key to clear what`s there.

    Now type Crusty.exe into the title box and hit the enter key. Right click on the Crusty.exe file and choose "Send to desktop Create Shortcut".

    You can now close the HJT directory.

    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).

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {EC9FA9ED-7983-4AB1-94F6-A5BD8C02BA29} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\hgGayxXq.dll (file missing)

    Fix all 015 Trusted Zone entries.

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: jkkHYqnM - jkkHYqnM.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your system.

    Download combofix.exe to your desktop. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts. A window will open with a warning. Type "1" (and Enter) to start the fix. When the scan completes it will open a text window.

    Do not touch your mouse/keyboard until the scan has completed.[/b] The scan will temporarily disable your desktop, and if interrupted may leave your desktop disabled. If this occurs, please reboot to restore the desktop.

    Combofix will automatically save the log file to C:\combofix.txt

    Please attach the Combofix log as well as a fresh HJT log.
