    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    For your problem, do the following.

    Download the attached .zip file, unzip it and double click on the resulting .reg file. You will be prompted to merge it into your registry, click yes.

    Then, go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
