Unzip HJT into it's own permanent folder before doing anything in order for it to create backups. (Not a temporary folder & not on the desktop).
Please create a directory on your c: drive called c:\hijackthis (and download) and unzip hijackthis into that directory. Run the program from that directory from now on. It is essential that you follow these steps or certain important features of the program will not function correctly.

-----------------------------------------

Scan again with HijackThis and check the following items:

O2 - BHO: ts - {4006DCA3-433D-4FC8-AC36-42DA7797DCB7} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\bho.dll (file missing)
O2 - BHO: TalMgr Class - {70230839-555C-4862-8D42-BB1E2352502C} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\italujsk.dll
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [ichckupd] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ichckupd.exe

After checking these items, close all browser windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked".

Then reboot your computer and post a fresh HijackThis log.
