Hi

Everytime i start my system up, i have a pop up that starts called "AI Project Updater:Installing...". I have no idea what it is related to, but it comes up every time i boot it. It remains there for about 10 minutes, and then disappers.

I cannot close it, etc, but have a feeling it isnt supposed to be there!

I have been posting on the afterdawn.com forums, but was told that i may be able to get some help on here instead. The posts for the afterdawn forum can be found here should you need them:

I have a feeling i have some kind of virus/malware, but cannot seem to shift it. I have run a Malawarebytes scan, and a virus scan. Both of which have found problems and removed them (it says it has anyway!).

I was recommended to use the hijakthis scan. The log can be found below:

Im not sure if i am right, but i think it is always finding the same files?!

When i booted up again after "removing" the Malwarebytes finds, i still got the "AI Project updater: Installing..." popup. I really dont understand what it could be?

Help!!

Many thanks
