I have enclosed below the HJT log. I have so far installed the latest Adaware SE personal and did a full system scan. Removed all components that were found. I have also ran PestPatrol in order to double check if any further spyware existed. PestPatrol reports that Ezula exists on my system but I could not find any of the suggested named files such as stub.exe or ezstub.exe. I have enclosed the following log. Please help.

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure. Please move Hijack This to a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

First, please download and run HostsFileReader:
http://www.geekstogo...tion=show&id=22

Simply open the program, click the "reset default" button, and confirm the changes.

After that, Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?.
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\dsktrf.dll
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Shdocvw.dll

Next, 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.

If you don't use MSN Messenger, fix this one too:
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MSMSGS] "C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" /background

Don't use AOL? Fix this one:
O4 - Global Startup: America Online 8.0 Tray Icon.lnk = C:\Program Files\America Online 8.0\aoltray.exe

Also, you have an unnecessary office process running that is a RAM HOG! For more information and how to disable it, see here:
http://support.micro...spx?kbid=282599

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log, and let us know how your system's working. <_<

Thank you so much for your help! <_<

I followed your instructions but when I got to the pt where I had to removethe file:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Shdocvw.dll

I could not remove it since it said that it was currently protected or in use. Even though I was in Safe Mode I wasnt sure what was running it. Anyways I followed your instructions and I was able to remove Ezula it seems since it does not have the green links embedded in the text in IE.

Here is my HJT log:
