Please download HijackThis from http://www.hijackthisaid.org/tools/dls/click.php?id=2
After downloading, you have place it into a permanent folder such as "C:\HJT". To do this:

* Navagate to your C:\ drive.
* Right click inside of the C:\ drive
* A menu with the choice "New" will pop up
* Hover over "New" and select "Folder" from the sub-menu that pops up.
* Rename the Folder HijackThis
* Drag HijackThis into the new folder.

Next, open HijackThis, and click the "Scan" button. Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet!

Now click the 'Save Log' button.

Post the contents of that log as a reply to this post.
