What you are actually sharing is a Trojan:

hotoffers.info_FIX.zip/uninstall.exe - infected by Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Agent.hy

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt here, however if you have run this you are going to have new infections. Post a fresh HJT log.

whatever it is it fixes the hotoffers.info crap, all those icons on the desktop the startpage in IE, the red circle with white X in taskbar with popups and all that stuff. After I used it i ran adaware and M$ antispyware and I am having 0 problems..

When i get home ill post a hjt log.. bout 8pm east

Please do, so that I can make sure nothing is lurking there.

FYI, upload that uninstall file to here:

http://virusscan.jotti.org/

and you will see what I mean.

Just need to fix this with HJT:

O16 - DPF: {0F9B4CA4-A30F-480A-841D-69B45C50A8F8} (SekureL0gin.SekureKontrol) - http://secure2.comne...iveSekurity.cab

Otherwise it's OK. Where did you find the Fix that you used?

As a final check, click here to download eScan's mwav application. Double-click it to run it, select all local drives, scan all files, press 'scan' and when it is completed, anything found will be displayed in the lower pane. Highlight it, CTRL C and paste it in your next reply.

That was quick - normally takes an hour or two :tazz:

OK, just need to find and delete this file:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\guninst.exe

...and you should be good to go.

You're welcome - glad to help :tazz:

To help keep you clean follow the recommendations in Tony's article here:

So how did I get infected in the first place?
