I did a google search and stumbled across your forum on the thread posted by Tazza dated 10-18-2006. I followed the links and the instructions on your thread "Follow these instructions BEFORE posting your HJT log." to step 3 to the point of scanning my computer with HijackThis. I have saved the scan log as requested and have attached it for your review. In addition to following your instructions I have restarted my computer in safemode and have deleted the "Gold Codec" folder which appeared to be at the heart of the problem. I had also previously scanned my computer with Lavasoft SE Adaware. I fear that my computer may still be infected with traces of the trojan virus and also that I have deleted things I shouldn't have. If you could have a look at the file and advise me I would be most grateful. Thank you, Nsheri.
