Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. I suggest running the system file checker. You will need to have your windows install cd in the cd drive. Then go to start, run and type sfc /scannow
Note the space between sfc and the slash, that is they way to do it.

I seem to recall that newdot is malware. You might want to check for it on google.

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Newdot is indeed malware so running sfc /scannow really won;t do anything for you in this case..

Go to This Thread (<-- Click Here) and follow the instructions given there..

Once you have finished, post a copy of your HiJackThis log in the Malware Forum (Link underlined in my signature) and let the guru's there have a go at it!!

That is why you post your HJT log in Malware.. They will help you clear out the rest..
