Go here for the free Ad-Aware 6 Personal Build 181:

Launch the program ... on the start-up screen, you will need to first run the Webupdate Feature (globe at the top), or click "check for updates" to get the Reference File up to date.

Please use the Custom Scan with Memory and Both registry scans ON. Also.... make sure that you activate IN-DEPTH scanning before you proceed.

Then see that you have these options checked:
Under Ad-aware 6 Settings, Scanning, Memory & Registry:
"Scan My Hosts File" ...

Under Ad-Aware 6 Settings, Tweaks, Scanning Engine:
"Unload recognized processes during scanning."
Under Ad-Aware 6 Settings, Tweaks, Cleaning Engine:
"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

Next ...

Run Ad-Aware 6.
Mark the objects you wish to eliminate for removal. There are many options available with a right-click.
Make a Quarantine only if you do not have the Auto-Quarantine option ON.
Then choose "Next" to remove the chosen objects.
Finally ... Reboot

Please read for further instructions, settings , etc.

Next ...

Go here and download HijackThis v1.97.7:

It is a zip file, so you will need to unzip it.

Run HJT and then you will need to post the contents of the logfile it creates ... simply click "Save log" in order to create it ... it will open in Notepad, and you can copy/paste it here.

Do not fix anything until after the logfile is reviewed. Most of what is found is harmless or essential to the safe workings of your computer.
