Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Thanks for the quick reply buddy215, i downloaded superanti spyware and followed your instructions,, it seems to have done the trick but i also thought this after running a scan with spyware doctor, it found the problems and deleted them, my compy was ok until i had to do a re-start and it came back.
To test this i have done a re-boot and it seems ok upto now, do you think i should still do a check with hijackthis and post the logfiles?
Once again thanks buddy,,, lol,,, Ian

Hi figgis41,

Seeing as the problems returned on reboot and to be certain that your computer is totally clean, post a HijackThis Log in the in the Hijack and Analysis Forum by following the directions in this link; Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log .
Please do not post the log in this forum.

I think posting the log would be wise. Last I looked, there was a backlog. Still though, considering the malware type you should post the log. If for some reason you decide not to post a log, you should update SAS in say 3 days and run it again in safe mode.
Only my opinion--Spyware Doctor does a good job of advertising.
