    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    First, go HERE and follow the instructions.

    Then, go HERE and follow all the instructions in the order they are given.

    Finally, post a fresh HJT log as an attachment, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    my advice would be buying and installiing spysweeper 4.5, this removes 94% of spyware and will removemost spyware causing programs, such as the yahoo toolbar, you can try it free for thirty days at www.webroot.com

    Spysweeper is a fine programme. However, it needs to be used in conjuction with other antispyware utilities, as nothing can get rid of everything.

    The claim that it gets rid of 94% of spyware, depends largely on the deffinition of spyware. Some infections require specialist removal tools to get rid of them.

    I have inspected plenty of infected HJT logs, where spysweeper was installed on the users system.

    If you would like some very useful info on dealing with viruses/spyware/malware etc.

    Take a look at this thread HERE.

    Regards Howard :)
