Hello, first of all, we need to restore your default file associations for exe's.
I assume you are having XP? If not, please let me know.

If you are having XP, download this registryfix:


Unzip it and doubleclick xp_exe_fix.reg
Click yes when it asks you to merge to the registry.

When done..

Download the latest version of Ad-Aware:

After installing AAW, and before running the program.
Please be sure to update the reference file following the instructions here:

Now we need and use an extra plugin for Adaware Se to clean up your system.

How to use the VX2Cleaner plugin for Adaware:

*Close Ad-Aware if it is open.

*Download the vx2cleaner.zip file.

*Extract the files in the archive to your Lavasoft Ad-Aware plugin-folder (standard in your C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Adaware SE\Plugins)
Read here how to unzip/extract properly:

*Click "Yes to all" when asked if you want to replace the files.

*Reopen Ad-Aware and click the Add-ons button in the main window.

* Select "VX2 Cleaner" from the list.

* Click the "Run Tool" button in the lower right corner of the window.

* Click "OK" when asked if you want to execute this tool.


Open Adaware SE again after reboot:

Click scan and choose Smartscan

Run the Ad-Aware scan and allow it to remove everything it finds and then REBOOT to allow it to finish.

Post a hijackthislog in your next reply.
If you don't have hijackthis yet, download it here:

Install it. Normally it must be installed in your Program Files\Hijackthis afterwards.
Open hijackthis.exe and choose: scan and save log.
Post the log in your next reply.
