Howdy Rekzai and Welcome to GeekstoGo!

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"

I will need you to download a few programs to assist us cleaning you up!

Download Ewido Security Suite, install then from within the program check for updates BUT dont scan yet
Ewido Security Suite:

When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu". When you run ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK.
We will fix this in a moment.

From the main Ewido screen, Click on Update in the left menu, then click the Start Update button.

After the Update finishes (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful"), Now close the program.

If you have problems updating see here

AdawareSE 1.06

The link will tell you how to Install>Update>Configure and Scan!

Download and Install CleanUp! 4.0

Right-Click Here and Click "Save As" to download DelDomains.inf to your desktop.

Right Click DelDomains.inf on your desktop and select "Install"

It will perform a silent process>Give it a minute to run!

Go to Add\Remove Programs and Remove these

MessengerPlus! 3
Media Access
Internet Optimizer

Reboot into SAFE MODE(Tap F8 when restarting)
Here is a link on how to boot into Safe Mode:

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

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

Locate and Delete these

C:\Program Files\MessengerPlus! 3<< Folder

C:\Program Files\LimeWire<< Folder

C:\Program Files\Media Access<< Folder

C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer<< Folder

C:\Program Files\Qcprh<< Folder

Run CleanUp!

Click "Cleanup" and it will Scan and Remove all available Temp files>Click "Close">Click "No" to Logoff!

Scan with Ewido>when prompted>Select to clean and place a check by the box to use this action for all infections!

Once it completes,Click the tab to Save the report and Save it to your Desktop for easy access!

Scan with Ad Aware>>Remove all it finds and Delete all Quaratine Files!

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