Hi. I am new to the forum. I have been working on this infectio for 3 days and have tried all sorts of programs-- McAfee,Malwarebyte,Spybot, Ad-Aware. I have tried removing some of the junk in the Win System 32 file by hand. I have also read a lot about this problem here in this forum and elsewhere. I just downloaded Hi-Jacker and ran it in anticipation that I might be requested to do so. I would appreciate any help that could be offered. My screen saver is disabled ; my background is all blue on my screen; and I have all sorts of warnings and pop ups occuring warning me of fake things and trying to get me to buy falk anti-spyware. Internet Explorer has become much more unstable. I have run programs in regular start up and in safe mode and this thing keeps returning and seems to be winning.

Thanks in advance for any help that you can give.
