I have run Ad Aware, SpyBot and The Cleaner but haven't been able to stop error messages or popups from occurring. My homepage has been changed to "allaboutsearching.com. Hijack this log is as follows:

Hi Ellie, welcome to Geeks to Go! <_<

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

Please move Hijack This to a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Jugs dog] C:\PROGRA~1\Mess Dead Active\City Build Option.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MProcessor] "C:\Program Files\\MProcessor\mprocessor.exe"

Reboot in safe mode (by tapping F8 at startup and select safe mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\PROGRAM FILES\Toolbar <- this folder
C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\WinTools <- this folder
C:\PROGRAM FILES\GRAMFU... <- this folder (name abbreviated)
C:\documents and settings\kevin bresnahan\local settings\temp\7flr6EB.exe
C:\WINDOWS\jgfcran.exe
C:\PROGRAM FILES\Mess Dead Active <- this folder
C:\Program Files\MProcessor <- this folder

Please delete your temporary files by deleting all files and folders that are in those folders (do not delete the temp folder itself) like for example
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\
C:\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\
Also delete your Temporary Internet Files, be sure to also select delete all offline content.

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log, and let us know how your system's working. :D

Well, let's try again. Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinTools] C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsA.exe
O4 - Startup: AdDestroyer.lnk = C:\Program Files\AdDestroyer\AdDestroyer.exe
O4 - Startup: Virtual Bouncer.lnk = C:\Program Files\VBouncer\VirtualBouncer.exe

Reboot in safe mode (by tapping F8 at startup and select safe mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools <- this folder
C:\Program Files\AdDestroyer <- this folder

Reboot your PC.

Just fix this and you will be ok.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /install

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use).

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.
Link to SpywareBlaster: http://www.geekstogo...tion=show&id=12

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.
