Check out Bleeping Computer Startup Programs Database. I believe it also has instructions on how to remove.

From the message you are getting, it sounds like you have an infection that can only be removed by a special removal tool. The tool is used by our HJT team in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum.

You should probably post a HiJackthis log in our HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum.
Before you do, please read the instructions in the How to submit a Hijackthis Log

Please be patient while a member of the HJT team has a chance to analysis your log.

It may take several attempts until your log is clean.

Good-luck.

:thumbsup:
JC

Pokapoka signifies an Elitum infection which can be fixed with Miekiemos's LQFix.bat. Do not try to fix this on your own, however. Just post a log in the section Joshua refered you to and the experts will take care of it.
