Hi

Please copy & paste logs, don't attach them unless asked to do so ... It's easier for us to work with them :thumbsup:

Not seeing anything malicious in your hijackthis log, however I do question all those entries in your trusted zone, putting an entry in your trusted zone is like giving your house keys to a stranger & then going on holiday, any site in the trusted zone can download & run anything on your computer without asking you first. I would remove them unless you feel you absolutely need them.

Please run a Kaspersky Online Scan

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

Click Accept

You will be promted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky,
Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
    Scan Archives Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan: Select My Computer
  • The program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Once finished, save the log to your Desktop as filename KAV.txt
THEN ...

Please Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here :-

http://www.majorgeeks.com/Malwarebytes_Ant...ware_d5756.html

* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

Thanks for your help. Kaspersky and MBAM only found problems in the RESTORE directory, so presumably McAffee had already cleared the original cause of the problem. I found some erroneous entries in the 'hosts' file and deleting them seems to have fixed the problem. I haven't run combofix.
I have taken your advise and removed the entries fin trusted zone.

Thanks again

:thumbsup:
