This should have been put in the Security forum, but someone will move it there for you soon. In the meantime, do a search here for bookmarker.gen and start using some of the things suggested in those threads (like adaware, spybot, etc.).

It is nice to know that a "newbie" member can get in trouble on their first post for posting in the wrong place. However, Thanks for your help.

Dont' worry- it's a very common mistake for new members to make.

Your log indicates that you're pretty heavily infested, so there are a few things you should do before we work with HJT:

1. Make sure your Norton anti-virus program is using the most current virus definitions and run a full manual system scan.

2. Download Ad Aware and Spybot Search & Destroy; the download links are in my sig below.

3. Open Ad Aware and configure it as follows:

- click the "Check for updates now" option on the main startup page; follow the prompts to install the most current reference file.

- Click the "Scanning" button.
Under Drives & Folders, select "Scan within Archives".
Click "Click here to select Drives + folders" and select your installed hard drives.

Under Memory & Registry, select all options.
Click the "Advanced" button.
Under "Log-file detail", select all options.
Click the "Tweaks" button.

Under "Scanning Engine", select the following:
"Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile" and
"Unload recognized processes during scanning."
Under "Cleaning Engine", select the following:
"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."
Click on 'Proceed' to save these Preferences.
activate "IN-DEPTH scanning"
Close the program

4. Open SpyBot and get the latest updates for it by clicking the "Search for updates" option. Once it finishes updating, close the program.

5. Delete the contents of all Cookies, Temporary Internet Files, and Temp folders, and empty your Recycle Bin.

6. Reboot into Safe Mode. You do this by hitting the F8 key as the computer is booting.

7. Run SpyBot; have it fix everything it finds.

8. Reboot into safe mode again.

9. Run Ad Aware. Once it finishes its scan, select all of the items it finds and have Ad Aware delete them.

10. Reboot normally, run HJT again, and post a fresh log.
