    Open HijackThis and select "Do a system scan only" and place a check mark next to:

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [z] C:\WINDOWS\system32\z.exe

    Next close all windows and click "Fix checked"


    From the desktop open My Computer and locate the following file/folder (in bold) and delete it. z.exe

    Location: C:\WINDOWS\system32\z.exe


    Rehide Hidden System Files & Folders


    I would advise running the steps in this thread and posting the logs to ensure the computer is clean.
