    Where are the other logs?

    Please follow the instructions, if you want help :confused:

    You will then need to restart, and then finally do a HJT log again

    Instructions Followed 3 loggs attached

    Alright Mr Pooh Bear, I think i did everythuing right. i didn't have any of the programs listed in Step 1 running so if I missed somethimg let me know.

    After Super Anti Spyware sweep I tried to update Java and I got an invalid Registry Key message so I went to the Java site and downloaded the program again. I then ran the Hijack This thing.

    So... the redirect problem seems to be solved but after I ran the Super Anti Spyware once, I couldnt find the log so instead I just ran it again when I got home from work and saved that log. Why did it find 25 things again?

    Do I leave the Super Anti Spyware program up and running all the time now?

    Thanks for everything, I owe you guys and gals some beer.

    Mbam found and removed (Rootkit.Agent) We may need to run another program for this. We'll see.

    Have SuperAntispyware remove the Tracking Cookies.
    These two add-ons work together to prevent the Tracking Cookies form getting on the system.

    Open Firefox> Tools> Options> Privacy section> UNCHECK 'accept all Cookies'> CHECK 'accept Cookies from Sites'.

    Disable Real Time protection before running HijackThis again:
    Update Java to v6u10 here:
    Update Adobe to v9 here:

    Please re-open HiJackThis and scan.*Check* the boxes next to all the entries listed below:
    Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked. Close HiJackThis and reboot into Safe Mode:

    Go to Add/Remove program in Control Panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).
    Open your Task Manager> End Task for BPGame.exe

    Start> Run> services.msc> right click> Properties on each of the following and change the Startup type to Disabled:
