Please help me with this. I'll try & explain as best I can. First, what is happening & Second, what I've done.
1. Whenever I open IE a second session will open to [bleep] sites. It also loads [bleep] sites to My Favorites & to my kids also. I've had to ban the computer in our house till I can get rid of this crap.
2. I added McAfee Antispyware but, it is still there. I didn't try CleanUp. I updated to Ad-aware SE & still no luck. I didn't run CWShredder & Spybot didn't help. I did run Ewido & will attach log. I didn't run Trend Housecall. I didn't run Windows Update yet. I ran Hijack this & will show log. I been trying for over a week without any luck. My computer is starting to bog down from scans I've been running.
Any help will be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

Hello davetr57 and Welcome!

We need to get HijackThis into a Permanent folder!

To do this>"Right Click" the Desktop>Select "New">Select "Folder">Name it whatever you like!

Now locate the original Zip file for HijackThis and place it in the new folder!

Unzip and "Extract All Files"

Be sure to follow this process for each User Account!

Reboot into SAFE MODE(Tap F8 when restarting)
Here is a link on how to boot into Safe Mode:
http://service1.syma...src=sec_doc_nam

After restarting in Safe Mode,Configure Windows to Show All Hidden Files and Folders,this must be done after restarting in Safe Mode!!

Here is a link to help with that
http://www.bleepingc...showtutorial=62

Be sure to follow the directions that apply to your Operating System!

Right Click the TaskBar,near the clock,select Task Manager>> Click Processes

Locate and Instances of Rundll32.exe>> Highlight and Select End Process!

Locate and Delete these

C:\WINDOWS\system32\siq.dll<< File Only!

C:\Program Files\Toolbar<< Folder!

Click Start>> Click Run>> Type in the Bold Commands below and Click OK!

regsvr32 /u siq.dll
If you get an error message,try it like this:
regsvr32 /u C:\WINDOWS\system32\siq.dll

regsvr32 /u toolbar.dll
or
regsvr32 /u C:\Program Files\Toolbar\toolbar.dll

Open HijackThis and put a check by these but DO NOT hit the Fix Checked button yet!

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://www.gophersearch.com/

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C8B2A36-3DB1-42A4-A3CB-D426709BBFEB} - (no file)

O2 - BHO: ohb - {F0C08B30-BA30-4FEB-924B-2E250CF0697D} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\siq.dll

Now Make sure ALL WINDOWS and BROWSERS are CLOSED and hit the Fix Checked Button!!

Run MSCONFIG and enable everything in the startup area. To get to MSCONFIG, click on Start -> Run -> type in MSCONFIG -> click OK!

Under the "General" Tab
Make Sure Normal Startup is Checked!!

Click Apply>>OK>>Follow the Prompts to Restart!!

Restart Normal and have the PC Scanned here
Panda Active Scan

You will need to be using Internet Explorer for the Scan to work!

Save the Report it generates!
