First, have HJT fix the following:

  • Reboot into safe mode (hit the F8 key as your computer is rebooting; before Windows starts) and, for every user account listed under C:\Documents and Settings, delete the entire contents of the following folders. If you get messages asking if you really want to delelte any of the files, click "Yes" or "Yes to all":
  1. Local Settings\Temp
  2. Cookies
  3. History
  4. Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
  • Also delete the entire content of your C:\Windows\Temp folder.

  • Search your system (including hidden files ands folders) for any of the .exe files in the "04" HJT entries I listed above and delete them.

  • Empty your Recycle Bin.

  • Reboot normally.

  • Run SpyBot, Ad Aware, and CWShredder (links are in my sig below). Have them fix everything they find.

  • Run HJT again and post a fresh log.
