    Download Hijackthis ver. 1.99.1 from HERE and save it to your Desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the "Select Addition Tasks" dialogue.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch HijackThis.
    Click on the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Copy and paste the log to this topic

    DO NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    Hi, your problem may not correlate with malware.

    ======

    Looking over your log, it seems you don't have any evidence of a third party firewall.

    As the term conveys, a firewall is an extra layer of security installed onto computers, which restricts access to systems from the outside world. Firewalls protect against hackers and malicious intruders. I want you to download a free firewall NOW from one of these excellent vendors:

    1) ZoneAlarm
    2) Agnitum
    3) Sunbelt/Kerio
    4) Comodo

    If you are using the built-in Windows XP firewall, it is not recommended as it does not block outgoing connections. This means that any malware on your computer is free to "phone home" for more instructions. Simply put, Windows XP contains a mediocre firewall. This firewall is NO replacement for a dedicated software solution. Remember to use only one firewall at the same time.

    ===========

    Looking over your log, it seems you don't have any evidence of an anti-virus software.

    Anti-virus software are programs that detect, cleanse, and erase harmful virus files on a computer, Web server, or network. Unchecked, virus files can unintentionally be forwarded to others, including trading partners and thereby spreading infection. Because new viruses regularly emerge, anti-virus software should be updated frequently. Anti-virus software can scan the computer memory and disk drives for malicious code. They can alert the user if a virus is present, and will clean, delete (or quarantine) infected files or directories. Please download a free anti-virus software from one these excellent vendors NOW:

    1) Antivir PersonalEdition Classic - Free anti-virus software for Windows. Detects and removes more than 50,000 viruses. Free support.
    2) avast! 4 Home Edition - Anti-virus program for Windows. The home edition is freeware for noncommercial users.
    3) AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition - Free edition of the AVG anti-virus program for Windows.

    It is strongly recommended that you run only one antivirus program at a time. Having more than one antivirus program active in memory uses additional resources and can result in program conflicts and false virus alerts. If you choose to install more than one antivirus program on your computer, then only one of them should be active in memory at a time.

    =========

    Update Java
    Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.

    *Download the latest version of Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6u2.
    *Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
    *Click the "Download" button to the right.
    *Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
    *The page will refresh.
    *Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
    *Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
    *Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
    *Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.

    ==========

    Please download Deckard's System Scanner to your Desktop


    * Close all applications and windows.
    * Double-click on Dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
    * The scan may take a minute. When the scan is complete, a text file will open Main.txt and extra.txt

    Please post Main.txt and Extra.txt
