===Get Adaware SE Personal from http://www.lavasoft.de/software/adaware/
- install it. Update it. Explore what settings you can change in it [via the cogwheel icon up top, if you are comfortable with that... you won't hurt anything, but for the present please keep the default settings]. Put an icon on your desktop for regular use.
===GET AVG antispyware 7.5 here.. http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5 -the link is almost at the bottom of the page , avgas Install it and update it.
===Restart your computer in Safe Mode:- press F8 several times while POST is running and before IDE detection completes.
- On the Windows Advanced Options Menu, select Safe Mode and press Enter.
- When the Boot Menu appears again, select Microsoft Windows XP and press Enter.
- Log in by using the your account if an admin type, or Administrator account and password. NOTE: The password is blank by default unless you set a password.

Run Adaware, doing a full system scan and finally remove all that it finds [rclick in the scan results window and select all, go next..]. If Adaware finds anything apart from cookies or your MRU list then, after removing those items you should repeat the scan [and removal] and so on until it comes up clean.

Start AVG a-s 7.5; under Scanner/ Settings set Recommended actions to Quarantine, and run the scan. Save the log file and only then click Apply all actions. Post the log file.
Reboot to normal mode.
===Next try an online scan at panda:- http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan?
-the link to the scan is just above the padlock pic.... free online virus scan.. enter a valid? email and follow through, choosing My Computer for a full system scan.
Post the log it produces here, along with a fresh Hijackthis log.

hang on, first do this as a matter of urgency!!
Start hijackthis, do a scan and put a check against this entry:
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = xxxxxxxxxx [zinblog]
and press Fix Checked.
You go there, u get a virus. I killed the link in the post so no-one would click on it... :)
AND DO THAT PANDA SCAN FIRST, right after the ATF cleaner runs.
