Hello there,

New Member- Not completely clueless needs some help please, I've obviously picked up some sort of nasty which is mucking up my browser (both IE and Foxzilla) , it keeps redirecting me, and won't allow me to access , even when I type in the URL, any sites which could help me, "it's almost as if it knows and recognises places like Lavasoft and AVG. I've already run Spy Sweeper, Ad aware, and AVG and got rid of a few things , one was a hijack file, one was CoolWebSearch (CWS) and the third was Virtumonde. But it still isn't fixed and I can't trace any more nasties, and it won't let me get updates. Below is my Hijackthis file. maybe someone can see something in it, it's now gone 3am and I'm knackered....and going to bed , perhaps one of you kind souls could look at my file below.

Many Thanks
