    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    It appears you`re not running any antivirus or firewall software. This is a huge security risk.

    Download and install the free AVG or Avast antivirus programmes and either the free Zonealarm or Kerio firewall programmes. You can get them HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

    Install whichever firewall you chose, followed by whichever antivirus programme you chose. Reboot your system the required number of times. Run the antivirus updates.

    Then, go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

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

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Try and follow as many of the instructions as you can. If you get stuck on any instruction, just go to the next step.

    Regards Howard :)
