Hi Calcutta22, welcome to DaniWeb :D

Please follow the recommendations in these threads to help protect, and start the cleanup process, of your system:



Include Ewido in the list of suggestions, scan with it in Safe Mode, and pay attention to where the log is saved so you can include it in your next reply.

Empty your Recycle Bin and reboot normally.

Download, install, update, and run these utilities:

CWShredder -- http://www.intermute.com/spysubtract/cwshredder_download.html
HSRemove -- http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4286.html

After you've completed that, get the self-extracting version of HijackThis from here (in line 2):

Then, close any open browser windows, 'Scan and Save Log' with HijackThis, and then copy and paste the log here along with the Ewido log.
