If the infection remains after following the steps in the self-help guide, then you should post a hijackthis log.

- Right-click on the HijackThis.exe file and select "rename".

Give your topic, a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information
