:) Cheers Linkmaster After clearing the key BT runs clean and no CWS found. :tazz: I thought the data on that key didn't look right, I have never seen in the registry data in that form before. Thanks once again for your HELP. I'm off Thursday down to The Costa Del Sol (SPAIN) for a while,a bit of recovery time. I couldn't turn off the proceedure and the stop was greyed out I deleted anyway and Job Done.

Great !! Glad I could help ! I needed some Expert help with this one!!

Here are a few tools that I recommend for protecting your system and keeping your system clean !!

Real Time Prevention
SpywareBlaster© by Javacool Software

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.
IESpyad© by EHowes : This will add several hundred Restricted Sites to the Restricted site zone in IE.

CCleaner© by CCleaner.com is a good app to clean out temp files, cookies, recent folder(win2000) and Prefetch folder(XP), etc

Spyware Scanners:
Ad-aware SE© by Lavasoft Scans your system for spyware and other threats
a˛ Scanner© by Emsi Software : Scans for Malware and Trojans on your system.

Good Free Antivirus Programs:
AVG© by Grisoft
Avast© by ALWIL Software
NOTE:Remember always have just 1 antivirus program running at a time. Having more than one running causes a conflict between the programs !! You can use one as a backup to run manually

Windows Update:
It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks
Windows Update

Firewalls:
If you have an "always on " internet connection, such as DSL or Cable, I recommend a Firewall.
A firewall will make your pc invisible to the outside world and will filter the outgoing and incoming traffic on your pc.
For a good idea of how vulnerable your system(s) are go to GRC
Scroll down to "Shields Up" Click on "Proceed" Then click on "Common Ports"to scan your ports.
2 very good Firewalls:
Sygate Personal Firewall© by Sygate, Inc
ZoneAlarm Firewall© by Zone Labs

These next steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection
Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness.
Alternative Browsers:
FireFox© by Mozilla
Opera© by Opera Software ASA

Java Plug-in© Sun Microsystems. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the HijackThis folder if everything is working okay.

Always keep your Antivirus & Spyware Removal Tools current with the latest definitions and updates !!

Using these tools and keeping them updated will reduce the risk of future infections!!

Do you have any questions??
