I received a message from a friend, but the friend did not send me the link. It sent me to google and immediately my antivirus software went off, but was not able to fix it. I get this popup whenever I logon. Posted Image

I have tried, every malware program I know... CClenaer, CWShredder, AdAware, SpyBot, and nothing seems to work. I created a scan using HiJack This, and can only hope someone can interpret what I need to delete.

Hello Tom Burick and welcome to BleepingComputer!

Apollogies for the delay. The forum has been very busy lately. If you are still having problems please download OTViewIt to your desktop.
  • Close all windows and double click OTViewIt
  • Place a tick in the Scan all Users box
  • In the File Age drop down box select 90 days
  • Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
  • On completion it will produce two logs on the Desktop, post the OTViewIt.txt and Extras.txt logs in your next post.
