Do you know how can i remove it? and what else items i should check and fix at HijackThis? I am appreciated for your help.

I have moved your post to it's own thread. Please do not tag on to the end of other members threads.

Unzip HJT into it's own permanent folder before doing anything in order for it to create backups. (Not a temporary folder or directly on the desktop (in a folder on the desktop is fine) & not directly on your hard drive). Close all (browser) windows & rescan with hijackthis. When the scan is finished place a check in the box to the left of the following entries & click 'fix checked' :

Reboot into safe mode following the instructions here & navigate to & delete the following if found:

C:\PROGRA~1\CAKEHE~1
C:\PROGRA~1\DEFY MFCD TEAM

C:\PROGRA~1\3721\helper.dll

Reboot normally. If you never installed this one yourself, I suggest it's removal;

C:\PROGRA~1\3721

Thanks, Crunchie.
I finally removed all of them and got a clear IE. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
You are so COOL!

You're welcome :) . Marking this as solved. Anyone else with the same problem, please start your own thread. Thank you.
