For about a week, it does not matter how many times I run a system scan, Adware BHO still keeps popping up in my system. I have already tried running Ad-Aware in Safe Mode on my computer, but that still hasn't helped. I just ran Hijack This, and I'm hoping someone can tell me about which files are clean and which are problematic.

Hello breezer8811,

I apologise for the delay, the forum is busy.

If you still need help, post a new HijackThis log following my instructions below.

There is some infection hiding in your log.

Using Windows Explore by right-clicking the Start button and left clicking Explore navigate to: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe

Right-click on HijackThis.exe & select Rename to scanner.exe and post back a new Hijackthis log.
