Please read through the instructions before you start (you may want to print this out).

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

Please download Nailfix from here:
Download nails.cmd fix
Unzip it to the desktop but please do NOT run it yet.

Download Pocket Killbox and unzip it; save it to your Desktop.

Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

Use windows add remove program file's uninstall the following.
c:\program files\180searchassistant\sac.exe

Reboot into Safe Mode: please see here if you are not sure how to do this.

Now run the nails.cmd fix

Then please run Ewido, and run a full scan. Save the logfile from the scan.

Clear out the files in the Prefetch folder. Go to start> run> type into the box Prefetch and delete all the files in that folder.

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:
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [h8ddkpcu] C:\WINDOWS\System32\h8ddkpcu.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sac] c:\program files\180searchassistant\sac.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [orec32] C:\WINDOWS\System32\orec32\orec32.exe

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

Clean out temporary and TIF files. Go to Start > Run and type in the box: cleanmgr. Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure all are checked and then press *ok* to remove:

Run killbox and click the radio button that says Delete a file on reboot. For each of the files you could not delete, paste them one at a time into the full path of file to delete box and click the red circle with a white cross in it.
The program will ask you if you want to reboot; say No each time until the last one has been pasted in whereupon you should answer Yes.

Let the system reboot.
