First of all I'd like to say Welcome to Bleeping Computer. You have come to the right place to get your computer cleaned up. My recommendation is as you state, to post a HijackThis log.
And here's some additional information about the HijackThis process:
Read How to post a HijackThis Log
. Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.
Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum
, at this link
. Do not
, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please
, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible
Once you have made the post, please
, DO NOT
make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies
. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply
. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
Be (Smitfraud.C.) Safe
