Hi jarl and Welcome to GeekstoGo!

I would imagine a scan with Ad Aware SE would have yielded a return for the Alcan Worm!

Download and unzip BFUzip from here

Right Click the Zip folder and select "Extract All"

Locate and double click BFU.exe

Now locate and click the Greenish Blue globe with the chord plugged into it!

When the next small window pops up-> Copy&Paste this URL into it and click OK!

Now click the execute button and let the script run!

Download WinPFind:

Right Click the Zip Folder and Select "Extract All"

Don't use it yet!

Reboot into SAFE MODE(F5 or F8 when restarting)
Here is a link on how to boot into Safe Mode:

Once in Safe Mode-> From the WinPFind folder-> Doubleclick WinPFind.exe and Click "Start Scan"

It will scan the entire System, so please be patient!

One you see "Scan Complete"-> a log (WinPFind.txt) will be automatically generated in the WinPFind folder!

Run MSCONFIG and enable everything in the startup area. To get to MSCONFIG, click on Start -> Run -> Type in MSCONFIG -> click OK.

Under the "General" Tab
Make Sure Normal Startup is Checked!!

Select the tab labeled Startup and put a Check by every box there!! Once everything is enabled, run "Hijack This!" and post a new log to this thread!!

Restart Normal and have the PC Scanned here:

You will need to be using Internet Explorer for the Scan to work!

Save the Report it generates!

Post back with a fresh HijackThis log and the reports from WinPFind and Panda!
