Update your HijackThis to version 1.98.2, and be sure to run it from a permanent folder, not a temporary one. Make sure you have run the latest versions of Adaware, and Spybot Search & Destroy, and post a new log.


You are using an outdated version of hijackthis. Please download the newer version.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site

You are currently using hijackthis from a temp directory. This can cause problems. Please create a directory on your c: drive called c:\hijackthis and download and unzip hijackthis into that directory. Run the program from that directory from now on.

For a tutorial on how to use HijackThis please see the following link:

Using HijackThis to Remove Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and Dialers
