First go to "My computer" and right click your hard drive, click properties, and then click the "Disk Cleanup" button. Make sure all folders with temp/temporary are selected and the recycle bin. More if you'd like. Clean it up.

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

Please save Hijack This in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

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, then click fix checked.

Try starting in safe mode and then run hijack this and remove the following entries:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://www.xlietvmoc...P291BqEMIXV.htm
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,CustomizeSearch = res://C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\toolbar.dll/sa
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Hidedefysecthope] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Memo Long Hide Defy\once grid.exe

Then reboot into safe mode again and do this:

Next click "start" , "all programs", "accessories" , "windows exploere" and navigate to the following files and folders found in bold and delete them.

C:\PROGRAM FILES\Toolbar
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Memo Long Hide Defy I don't know what this but I can assure you that you don't need it. Unless you know what it is and want it. Then don't delete it if you need it.

reboot normally and post fresh log with any new information.

I suggest clicking on the Spyware link in my signature and downloading AdAware Se Personal and Spybot S&D. Download and install those, check for updates and scan your computer with each one (rebooting in between scans) and remove anything it finds. You'll probably be surprised at all the stuff it finds.

Next click "start" , "all programs",  "accessories" , "windows exploere" and navigate to the following files and folders found in bold and delete them. 

C:\PROGRAM FILES\Toolbar
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Memo Long Hide Defy I don't know what this but I can assure you that you don't need it.  Unless you know what it is and want it.  Then don't delete it if you need it.

reboot normally and post fresh log with any new information.

I suggest clicking on the Spyware link in my signature and downloading AdAware Se Personal and Spybot S&D.  Download and install those, check for updates and scan your computer with each one (rebooting in between scans) and remove anything it finds.  You'll probably be surprised at all the stuff it finds.

Jonny R. I think you got it. At least for the moment. Thanks for all your help
Did not find C:\program files\toolbar. Also can I delete all those backup folders on my desktop??

Thanks again. Goots :D

Everything looks good except for one little thing.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://www.cwirmmrdg...291BqEMIXV.html

Gotta remove that entry. It keeps coming back. Try this.

Reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

(Windows XP)
1. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

Reboot into safe mode again and run hijack this and remove that bad entry listed above. Reboot normally and post your new log.

The backup folders are there so in case the wrong thing gets deleted then you can restore it from the backup. If everything seems to be working fine then go right ahead and get rid of them. You can enable system restore again too.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D
