Well, I've got another problem, although it's not as bad as the last.

So far, nothing has worked. So, I figured I'd come back here for help with it.

1. Make sure your PC is set to show all hidden files and folders go here for instructions on how to do this. http://www.xtra.co.n...1916458,00.html

2. Boot into safemode to do this keep tapping F8 on your keyboard while your PC is starting up you will get a menu select safemode.

3. While in safemode open Hijackthis and click scan. Then tick and fix the following in Hijackthis with all windows closed except Hijackthis.

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7A1693A1-AFAF-4F1E-9B05-EEC38A85FBF3} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\z8tq5a.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [t5jnm2t.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\t5jnm2t.exe /k

4. Delete the files. (if present)

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\z8tq5a.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\t5jnm2t.exe

5. Reboot and post a new Hijackthis log here in a reply.
