* Click here to download StartDreck.

Unzip the file first. DoubleClick: 'StartDreck.exe'
First click on the config button.
Now click the Unmark all button
Put a check by these boxes only:

*In the Registry column select "Run keys"
*In the Files column select "Autostart folders"

Hit OK.

Now click the Save button to save that log. Go to the StartDreck folder and find the Startdreck.log file.

Copy and paste the contents of that log back here and await further instructions.

Run StartDreck again and check the same options as you did before then find this entry:

*C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\winlogon.lnk

Select that entry then click the "Delete" button to delete it.

Rescan with Hijack This and post a new log.
Post a log with HijackThis v1.99.1 not the older version
That's ok, everything looks good now :)

Now turn off System Restore:

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

Restart your computer.

Turn System Restore back on and create a restore point.

To create a restore point:

Single-click Start and point to All Programs.
Mouse over Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore.
In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a restore point" and click the Next button.
Type a description for your new restore point. Something like "After trojan/spyware cleanup". Click Create and you're done.

You can mark your thread "Solved" from the Thread Tools drop down menu.
