"C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\Ad-Aware.exe" +procnuke

Note; the path above is of the default installation location for Ad-aware SE, if this is different, adjust it to the location that you have installed it to.
When the scan has completed, select next. In the Scanning Results window, select the "Scan Summary"- tab. Check the box next to each "target family" you wish to remove. Click next, Click Ok.
If problems are caused by deleting a family, just leave it.
Reboot your computer after removal, run a new "full system scan" and post the results as a reply. Don't open any programs or connect to the internet at this time.
Then copy & paste the complete log file here. Don't quarantine or remove anything at this time, just post a complete logfile. This can sometimes takes 2-3 posts to get it all posted, once the "Summary of this scan" information is shown, you have posted all of your logfile.
Also, keep in mind that when you are posting another logfile keep "Search for negligible risk entries" deselected as negligible risk entries (Mru's) aren't considered as a threat. This option can be changed when choosing your scan type.
Remember to post your fresh scanlog in THIS topic.
