Hi andymc, Welcome to GTG !! :tazz:
Sorry for the delay in reviewing your post !

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

Since it has been so long, lets begin by downloading and running a few programs to help clean things up :

Do you use Netscape or Internet Explorer as your primary browser??
If Internet Explorer :
First, lets update Internet Explorer
Download and InstallInternet Explorer 6.0 SP1

Reboot when it asks.

CWShredder© by Trend Micro Inc.
Extract the files to a folder

Update CWShredder
Open CWShredder and click I AGREE
Click Check For Update
Close CWShredder

Download and Install CCleaner© by CCleaner.com

Reboot to Safe mode
Restart your computer and immediately begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard.
If done right a Windows Advanced Options menu will appear.
Select the Safe Mode option and press Enter.

Run CWShredder
Click Fix and then Next, Make sure you let it fix all CWS Remnants. If it wants to reboot let it.

Run CCleaner
SETUP
DO NOT USE THE ISSUES TAB!!!!
Open CCleaner

Options, Settings: Check "Run CCleaner when system starts" (optional)
Options, Settings: Check "Add 'Run Cleaner' option to Recycle Bin context menu" (optional)

To clean your machine, it is highly recommended that you clean the following directory contents (but not the directory folder):

(Depending on Operating System and/or Browser, some of the following folders may not be present)
* C:\Windows\Temp
* C:\Windows\Prefetch
* C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\cookies
* C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\localsettings\Temp
* C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\localsettings\Temporary Internet Files
* C:\Program Files\Firefox\Profiles\<user>\<num>\Cache
* C:\Program Files\Opera\Cache4
* C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files (This will delete all your cached internet content including cookies.)
* C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temp

* C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temp
* C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Firefox\Profiles\<user>\<num>\Cache
* C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Cookies
* C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Cookies
Hit OK
In left pane, scroll down to "Advanced, Custom Folders", put a check in Custom Folders
Then click on Run Cleaner
Put check in box to not show message again.
It will automatically clean.

Close out CCleaner

Reboot back to Normal Mode

Please run ONE of these Online Virus Scans :

Under "Scan your PC", please click Scan now. It's free!
Select your location and click the Go button.
Click the red magnifying glass button.
Select Complete Scan.
Please be patient while Housecall downloads.
Please allow the ActiveX Control and when prompted click install
Put a check next to My Computer
Leave the following checked:

Check security vulnerabilities

Click the Next button.
It will download the latest scan engine and pattern files.
When the definitions have been downloaded, the scan will start.
After it's done scanning it will take you to the summary page.
Click the Next button.
Click the drop-down to choose delete or remove on each bad guy found, if you receive a prompt click OK.
Click the Next button to move onto the recovery (final) portion of the scan.
After everything has been removed, please click the show button on everything.
Highlight all the of text and press CTRL + C to copy the text.

OR

Kaspersky WebScanner

You will be promted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:

Select My Computer

Then the program will start and scan your system.
The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.

Save the file to your desktop.

Reboot, run HijackThis and post a fresh HijackThis Log and the Virus Scan Log here

Thank You !!
