Aurora and Party Poker

A couple of days ago I started to get the same Aurora pop-ups from using IE. I followed the initial steps to cleaning malware off my computer.
I believe that I have gotten rid of the cause to the Aurora pop-ups, however I also noticed an icon for Party Poker appear on my desktop recently. I know I did not install anything like this on my computer intentionally, seeing as how I do not play poker.
However, I have deleted this icon from both the desktop and the file itself several times and it simply comes back.
This fact is starting to worry me that I have other things still on my computer that I cannot identify or locate. :tazz:

You are running HijackThis from the Desktop; please create a new folder for it and move the program into the new folder

Please download the Killbox.
Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.


Download CleanUp!.
If that doesn’t work, use this link.
Don't run the program, we'll do that later.

Go to options
Select ‘custom’
Put a check to:* empty recycle bins
* delete prefetch files
* CleanUp! All users.
Press 'cleanup!'

Once it's done, press Close. Let the system reboot.


Make sure all programs and windows are closed. Run HijackThis and place a check next to the following items, if found, then click FIX CHECKED
