To clean some of it out already, please download Spybot: Search and Destroy from http://www.safer-net...?page=download . Check for Updates first, download ALL Updates and Do a Scan. When finished, make sure ALL RED items have been ticked, and click the "Fix Selected Problems" Button.

I'd Also Recommend you Download AdAware, Another good Antispyware Program From http://www.lavasoftu...port/download/ . Install The Program and Run it. Make Sure You Click the "Check for Updates" Button before starting a scan. Do a scan on AdAware and Remove Everything it suggests.

Then, Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.merijn.or.../hijackthis.zip
Unzip to a convenient permanent* folder, double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

*To make a permanent folder do the following;
Click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there, and double click to run it.
