Hello Ubmdm,

1. Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Boot your computer in Safe Mode :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the
    Windows window appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
  • Choose your usual account.
Now run SDFix.exe
  • In Safe Mode, double click the SDFix.exe file. Click Install.
  • Open the extracted folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
  • Type Y to start SDFix.
  • It will remove the Trojan Services then make some repairs to the registry and prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • Your system will take longer that normal to restart as the fixtool will be running and removing files.
  • When the desktop loads the Fixtool will complete the removal and display Finished, then press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
  • Finally open the SDFix folder on your desktop and copy and paste the contents of the results file Report.txt in your next reply, with a new HijackThis log
2. Please read [url="http://"http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix"]this tutorial[/url] carefully to download ComboFix from one of the locations specified, and save it to your Desktop.
