Malware is best dealt with by the Malware Team.

Please go here


Run all the programmes as advised and then post a current Hijack This log to the Malware Section

You can run Panda Scan regularly until you have this removed

We appreciate the fact that you are trying to help people, but on this forum the only people that are allowed to give malware advice, are trained helpers.
As by our Terms of Use:

Because of the potential for harm, only staff members approved for malware removal are allowed to offer malware removal advice or reply to malware topics.

If you are interested in malware removal, Please consider joining our Geek University to learn how to become a trusted helper yourself.

Also, please don't reply to topics from 2005. There really is no need to dig up topics this old.
